Legal regulation of municipal waste management
Vrbová, Aneta ; Sobotka, Michal (advisor) ; Svoboda, Petr (referee)
The topic of the thesis is the legal regulation of municipal waste management in the Czech Republic. It introduces the readers to the individual legal regulations at the national and European level, tracing the development of the legal regulation of waste management since its inception in the 1970's and its gradual completion. The work introduces the various instruments that have been developed to regulate individual practices and activities and which, at the same time, make it possible to achieve the stated objectives. It also presents the various principles that set the basic direction for the current legislation. Attention is paid to the elementary concepts on the basis of which the whole system of obligations and responsibilities for waste management is built - these are the concepts of 'waste', 'municipal waste', 'hazardous waste' and 'waste management', and the thesis also traces how their content has evolved over time. The thesis also introduces the basic subjects of waste law, which are the waste producer and the operator of a waste management facility. It pays most attention to the municipality, which it considers to be a specific entity, and further examines its obligations in relation to the collection of waste from individual entities. The law entrusts the municipality with a legal...

Jech, Martin ; Sobotka, Michal (advisor) ; Fabšíková, Tereza (referee)
Adaptation to climate change from the perspective of (Czech) law Abstract Key words: climate change, adaptation, Czech law Climate change is a current topic that has an impact on many components of the environment and the whole society. Besides mitigation, adaptation is a key response to climate change. This diploma thesis deals with the issue of how (especially Czech) law approaches to adaptation to climate change. Particular legal instruments related to adaptation to climate change are discussed, especially conceptual, administrative and economic instruments, in the fields of protection of water resources, forest, agricultural land and nature and landscape. Selected non-law instruments related to adaptation to climate change are also mentioned. The thesis has several related research inquiries. The first question is what is actually a climate change and whether it is (or will be) its course unprecedented in the Holocene and the related question what climate is expected in the next decades. This is followed by other research questions, particularly how the political-legal approach to the question of climate change (especially adaptation) has evolved and what is the current legal level of adaptation to climate change, i.e. whether it is satisfactory or has some imperfections. And if it has some...
The municipality as an actor in environmental protection from a law perspective
Kovář, Pavel ; Fabšíková, Tereza (advisor) ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
The municipality as an actor in environmental protection from a law perspective Abstract Municipalities in the Czech Republic are entrusted with a number of very important and irreplaceable roles in protecting the environment, both within their independent competence and in activities carried out under delegated competence. In the first half of the text, the author defines the basic concepts in the form of the term municipality and the term environment. At the same time, in the first part of the thesis, the author analyses the constitutional-legal basis of local self-government units, more precisely municipalities, their characteristic features and the differences between the independent and delegated competence of municipalities. The second part of the thesis is devoted to the already mentioned definition of the environment, environmental law as a distinct and dynamically developing branch of public law, and legal instruments serving to protect the environment, including their division and examples. In the third part of the thesis, the author focuses on the individual activities carried out by municipalities under delegated competence in the field of air, water, soil, forest, nature and landscape protection or waste management. The fourth part of the thesis contains a list of activities carried out by...
Corporate responsibility and human rights: A way forward for climate litigation?
Chytil, David ; Žákovská, Karolina (advisor) ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
Subject of this diploma thesis is the accountability of largest private green-house gas emitters, mainly fossil fuel corporations (so called "carbon majors") and in particular their relationship with human rights law. Strategic climate litigation is on a rise and private emitters are increasingly targeted by the litigants. While human rights are widely used in climate change litigation against governments and state authorities, their role in existing and potential climate lawsuits targeted at private parties remains uncertain. The goal of the thesis is to enlighten this topic analysing potential grounds for corporate climate liability and recent case-law. Firstly, impact of corporations on climate system (their "share" of GHG emissions) is presented in contrast to their peripheral role in the international climate governance and law. Climate change as a human rights issue is briefly examined in the second part focusing on human rights abuses of fossil fuel corporations, including "case studies" of human rights impacts of corporations Shell, Total and Texaco/Chevron in countries of the Global South. Third part deals with various sources of potential climate change liability of corporations and role human rights law might play. Concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility and Business and Human Rights...
Hunting and fishing in the light of selected environmental issues
Rudolf, Vít ; Stejskal, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
1 Hunting and fishing in the light of selected environmental issues Abstract The diploma thesis focuses on the hunting and fishing in the light of selected environmental issues. Both hunting and fishing are activities that may serve as freetime activities, but their main purpose is nature conservation and as such should respond to the changes in nature brought about by climate change. The aim of this diploma thesis is to provide the reader with a basic insight into the legal regulation of hunting and fishing and to assess the current legal regulation in terms of preparedness for the changes in nature brought about by ongoing climate change. The second objective is pursued by answering three questions: "Does the Czech legislation sufficiently care about biodiversity conservation?", "Does the Czech legislation effectively combat invasive and non-native species?" and "Is Czech legislation prepared for the changes in animal behaviour that will inevitably occur in the context of climate change?". The diploma thesis is divided into five chapters. The beginning of the diploma thesis focuses on the issue of climate change, where the emphasis is mainly placed on laying out the problems related to the loss of biodiversity, the introduction of non-native species and changes in animal behaviour. Next, the diploma...

Mehl, Jakub ; Franková, Martina (advisor) ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
Operation of a collective system according to the End-of-Life Products Act Abstract This thesis deals with the operation of a collective system for fulfilling the obligations of producers of electrical equipment, batteries and accumulators and tyres. This is a current and from the environmental perspective very important issue, which is not only almost unknown to the general public, but also the professional public does not approach it with due attention. The main objective of the thesis is to analyse the new legislation and assess whether it may contribute to the transition to a circular economy. The sub-objectives consist of summarising the evolution of waste management in the Czech Republic with regard to the background resulting from European Union law, presenting the collective system as an alternative platform for the fulfilment of environmental obligations of producers and taking into account the approaches applied in the European Union Member States, as well as providing suggestions for potential amendments. The thesis is divided into five chapters. The first chapter concerns the development of the approach to waste management, focusing primarily on European Union law and principles, at the same time it explains the reasons for the adoption of the current national legislation. The second chapter...
New institutes in European energy law in the context of environmental protection
Kostić, Daniel ; Sobotka, Michal (advisor) ; Fabšíková, Tereza (referee)
1 Abstract Climate change and its solution is with no doubt one of the most important topics of this decade. As the top producer of greenhouse gases that contribute to this change, the energy industry must transform. However, the switch to production from renewable sources comes with its challenges and so it is a task for law to enable adoption of new practices and solutions. Energy production will face more frequent fluctuations so it must be supported by storage. Furthermore, the energy system must be prepared for entry of new actors, ensuring level playing ground on energy market. European union embraced the position of a world leader in this area and comes with complex legislative changes for member states. However, the speed and quality of its implementation varies while the imaginative clock of climate collapse continues its course. Key words: energy storage, community energy, active customers
