Education about politics. What shapes students' attitudes towards politics, democracy and society?
Doubková, Kateřina ; Perottino, Michel (advisor) ; Stauber, Jakub (referee)
The thesis deals with the issue of civic education in citizenship education classes at the second level of primary school. The emphasis is on topics of politics and the functioning of democratic society. The theoretical part of the thesis is devoted to the socialization through social actors and socialization processes. The thesis also focuses on the current state of citizenship education in the Czech Republic and the methods used in this subject. The practical level of the thesis is the analytical part, which is based on the curricular analysis of the data obtained from the Framework Education Programme for Elementary Education (RVP ZV) and the School Education Programme (ŠVP). The aim of this analysis is to find out what political topics are taught in citizenship education classes and what is the difference between the curriculum set out in the Framework Curriculum and the school curricula. The analytical part is complemented by data from semi-structured interviews with actors in the field of citizenship education.

Politicization of WHO during COVID-19 pandemic in Czech media
Hrebenár, Petr ; Parízek, Michal (advisor) ; Stauber, Jakub (referee)
This bachelor thesis delves into the portrayal of the World Health Organization (WHO) by Czech media during the critical period of the COVID-19 pandemic, aiming to understand the nature of media coverage and its implications on public perception. The study examines whether individuals with lower socio-economic status and educational levels are predisposed to engage with media that casts the WHO in a negative light. Utilizing a dataset from the Newton Media database, the thesis employs quantitative analysis to assess the sentiment of media coverage and consumption patterns across different demographic groups in Czechia. Through rigorous statistical testing, the research reveals significant correlations between socio- economic and educational demographics with preferences for negative media portrayals of the WHO, aligning with the theory that such groups may be more skeptical of international cooperation. This investigation contributes to the academic discourse on the media's role in shaping public opinion during global health crises and offers insights into the socio-political dynamics that influence media consumption.
Comparison of the functioning of regional political parties in the Czech Republic
Trubička, Vít ; Stauber, Jakub (advisor) ; Jüptner, Petr (referee)
This master thesis would be about Czech political parties, which are active at the regional level of Czech politics. The interest of research is their activity and the operation of these single political parties, what has the impact on the function, how are the political parties based, and how wide is their agenda. This is set up due to institutional factors and the election system due to the largeness of the municipalities and the party agendas. It depends, on whether they're a business firm party at the local level, a party against big parties cartels, or an environmental party. For the program of regional parties is important the regional variety, which is set by the social and economic situation in the regions. The point of research will be the development of regional political parties in the Czech Republic since the year 1993 when these kinds of parties were established. The important year for the parties' evolution will be the year 2000 when the regional structure of the Czech self-government was based on. In comparison to the research will be also other European regional political parties see, how different these in the Czech Republic are. In the Czech Republic are some different types of political parties that are based on their province.
Country-level Electoral coalitions in the Czech Republic
Snížek, Jan ; Stauber, Jakub (advisor) ; Brunclík, Miloš (referee)
The issue of coalitions is a traditional political science topic closely related to electoral systems, party systems and party theory. In the Czech and foreign literature, however, political scientists mostly deal only with coalitions that emerge after elections. That is why I have chosen for my diplo-m thesis the research of pre-election coalitions. In my thesis I conduct research on electoral coalitions that ran for the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Republic or the Czech National Council. I have chosen this topic also because in the last parliamentary elections in 2021 two electoral coalitions successfully ran for election and then formed a joint government. In this thesis, I deal with the Christian Democratic Union (KDU), ODS and KDS coalitions, the Left Bloc coalition, the Liberal Social Union, the Four Coalitions, SPOLU and the coalition of the Pirates and the Mayors. I have researched all these electoral coalitions and analysed their functioning, behaviour, ideological interconnectedness and post-election behaviour and action on the political scene. For this thesis I used academic literature, newspaper articles from the time of the coalitions' functioning, parliamentary press, proceedings in the Chamber of Deputies and Internet sources in the form of news about political events. I also...
Possible voting systems for presidential elections in the Czech Republic: Alternative vote, Borda count, supplementary vote
Požár, Rudolf ; Stauber, Jakub (advisor) ; Brunclík, Miloš (referee)
This master thesis examines the mechanics and effects of preference-based electoral systems: alternative vote, Borda count, and supplementary vote. It aims to determine which of these systems is able to select the most consensual candidate, and thus to choose a system that could replace the two- round system which is used as a rule for the Czech presidential elections. Author is trying to achieve the goal of the master thesis by modelling hypothetical Czech presidential elections, that was held in 2013, 2018 and 2023.
Irish Political Parties and its Political Positions on EU
Ševčíková, Kristýna ; Stauber, Jakub (advisor) ; Říchová, Blanka (referee)
The thesis entitled Irish political parties and the evolution of their positions towards the EU deals with an overlooked issue in our context, which is related to the attitude of political parties in Ireland and their relationship with the EU, and the author has defined the period of her analysis as 2002-2020. The first part of the thesis introduces the theoretical concept of Euroscepticism through the most influential theoretical contributions of authors such as Paul Taggart, Aleks Szczerbiak, Petr Kopecký, Cas Mudde, and Soren Rishoj. Also, it discusses the degree of Europeanisation of the Irish political system or political parties themselves. The next part of the thesis then discusses the formation of the Irish political and party system, referred to as the so-called two-and-a-half party system with two dominant political parties, Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael, and analyses the other political actors. The thesis is a longitudinal analysis building on data collected from the Comparative Manifesto Project, Chapel Hill Expert Survey. The author has supplemented this data with her 2020 election dataset and presents it in detail in the methodology section. The data analysis was carried out in R using Wordscores and TF-IDF, designed to answer three research questions for the content analysis of party...
Comparative study of the development of the system of financing political parties in the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic in the years 1993 - 2021
Mikeš, Jan ; Stauber, Jakub (advisor) ; Hájek, Lukáš (referee)
Tématem práce je komparační studie vývoje systému financování poli ckých stran v České republice a Slovenské republice v letech 1993-2021. Komparace je provedena na základě kritérií, které použila Ingrid van Biezen v práci Poli cal Par es as public u li es v časopisu Party Poli cs v roce 2003 a dvou kritérií, které přidává sám autor. Práce nejprve představuje a shrnuje stav současného poznání, následně separátně popisuje vývoj v České republice a Slovenské republice a na závěr komparuje v čase oba systémy. Výsledkem komparace je zjištění, že systémy většinu času blízce konvergovali, ale následně se vlivem české reformy v roce 2016 více diferenciovali, přičemž český systém je možno považovat za přísněji regulovaný.
