The Conformity of the Managerial and Democratic Imperatives of Governance in Non-Governmental Organizations (Comparison betwěeen Berlin, Cairo, and Prague)
Abdelhafez, Dina ; Frič, Pavol (advisor) ; El Baradei, Laila (referee) ; Pospíšilová, Tereza (referee)
Governance is derived from the French word "gouverner", so Good Governance refers to the way to control, steer, rule, and direct the organizations by the individuals who are in charge of the management affairs. The study uses the theory of Alexis de Tocqueville (1956), which emphasizes the importance of the presence of democracy to manage the internal tasks of the organizations, so these NGOs can play a role in fostering democracy in civil society. The study intends to find out the imperatives of good NGOs' governance through linking the daily operational tasks and the applications of democratic principles inside NGOs by using the qualitative research method to collect information and compare the implementation of the imperatives of good NGOs' governance in organizations in Berlin, Cairo, and Prague. Thus, the study presents two normative frameworks; the first one is to conceptualize and operationalize the imperatives of good NGOs' governance through integrating democratic theory with the representation and participation schools, and the second one is to examine the influence of the internal and external factors on the implementation of these imperatives in NGOs. The thesis categorizes the "Good NGOs' Governance Imperatives" into managerial imperatives and democratic imperatives. The managerial...
Real Estate and Territorial Development in the Context of Media
Erml, Tashi ; Wolák, Radim (advisor) ; Cebe, Jan (referee)
This thesis analyses the connections between real estate development, territorial development, and the media. The theoretical part presents fundamental topics from the field that are points of focus for the media and places them in a wider context with an emphasis on the housing situation in Prague. It also presents individual aspects that could have an influence on messages in the media, including the role of media ownership and the ideological beliefs of individual journalists. The work further discusses the presentation of developers in the media and their general reputations. The practical part of the paper employs three different research methods. The first is a content analysis focused on mainstream media, where we examine how they cover the topic over a specific period. The second includes a qualitative analysis that is based on interviews with a representative from the public sector, the private sector, and a non-profit. The third method is a quantitative analysis of a representative survey of Prague's inhabitants. In conclusion, the work presents recommendations how media could help cultivate the sector and improve communication between individual actors in real estate and territorial development.
Killer plants in Prague and its surroundings: A guide to their diversity and hidden dangers
Kováříková, Kateřina ; Slovák, Marek (advisor) ; Novotný, Petr (referee)
The immobility of plants and their inability to escape from danger is compensated by the creation of various defence strategies, which are used mainly by toxic plants. The main goal of the bachelor's thesis is a literature review on the topic of poisonous (toxic) plants, both in the context of defence mechanisms and their importance for human society. The thesis deals with the description of the main groups of toxic plant compounds, summarizes their chemical composition, properties, distribution, and effects on the human body. The second half of the work is focused on the diversity of wild-growing but also of some cultivated toxic plants of our landscape with a specific focus on the flora of Prague and its immediate surroundings. It analyzes plant representatives from two families, important for the production of toxic secondary metabolites, in more detail. Specifically, they are the aubergine (Solanaceae) and buttercup (Ranunculaceae) families. Along with the description of partial representatives, their distribution, ecology, my work also describes the documented poisonings and use of poisonous plants in folk and modern medicine. The impetus for the creation of this work is the low awareness not only of the child population but also of adults, about the dangers, risks, and impact of these toxic...
Depiction of Prague in Karel Čapek Chod's works
Bárta, Matěj ; Mocná, Dagmar (advisor) ; Blinková Pelánová, Eva (referee)
The thesis depicts Prague in the prose of Karel Matěj Čapek Chod. Its aim is to describe the functioning of individual places and to find possible symbolic meanings. From a methodological point of view, it is based on a naratological approach (forming the space via narration) and a thematic approach (expressing the poetics of the place). The practical part reflects mainly the approach that assumes that places have the ability to have a certain memory and to bear symbolic meanings, thus not forgetting literary and culturally historical context. The interpretation work takes these aspects into account and applies them when determining the function of the places described. It tries to articulate the meaning of the place or its surroundings chosen by the author. It captures how this place affects the functioning of the characters and how it behaves within the story.
Management of alien plant species in Prague
Fleischhans, Richard ; Pergl, Jan (advisor) ; Görner, Tomáš (referee)
Invasive and alien plants are one of the factors threatening biodiversity. Influence of this factor will become stronger in the future because of climate change. In local or regional areas these species are capable of disturbing material and energetic flows, change properties of environment and affect (often negatively) materials and services provided by ecosystems. This is the reason why invasive species are becoming targets of eradication and other interventions leading towards reducing their numbers and spread in invaded area. Despite these efforts, expansion and number of invasive alien species is growing in the world. Mainly globalization, more intensive traffic through countries and continents drive spreading of plants to new areas.There are not many examples of successfull eradication projects which led to complete removal of alien invasive plants on bigger areas. The majority of successfull removal of these species took place on islands. Fails of these efforts were caused probably by the need of repeating management action over the affected areas several years after. It is necessary to have clear idea since the beginning of the intervention about time frame of intervention and arrange enough money, material and personal capital. The obstacle to succesfull intervention may also be...
