Eršilová, Zdeňka ; Angelovská, Olga (advisor) ; Špeciánová, Šárka (referee)
The topic of the thesis is the role of street-level bureaucrats in the selection of tools for the prevention of child removal to foster care. The aim of the thesis is to compare the practice of street-level bureaucrats in selected social-legal protection of children institutions in Ústí region and Pardubice region. In order to achieve the aim of the thesis, qualitative research in the form of semi-structured interviews with the workers of the child social-legal protection body was used. The thesis identified differences in the use of some tools by street- level bureaucrats in the analysed regions. The main difference was the use of interactive case conferences and family conferences in the Pardubice region. The thesis described the barriers that prevent workers in the Ústí region from using the family conference tool and the circumstances for (not)removing children to foster care. Furthermore, factors influencing street-level bureaucrats in the choice of the tool were identified and the thesis highlights a possible difference in criteria for removing children to foster care across the regions, which would be worth further exploration.
