The Legitimacy of Public Service Media in the 21st Century: The Role of Audience Analysis
Vysloužilová, Kristýna ; Nečas, Vlastimil (advisor) ; Trampota, Tomáš (referee) ; Kroupa, Jiří (referee)
The dissertation thesis addresses the current position of European public service media. After many years in the position of naturally monopolistic broadcasters, these media are competing for attention not only with a number of private media but also with an unlimited number of online platforms. The thesis analyzes the main potential threats to the legitimacy of public service media and gradually describes the normative requirements that are imposed on public service media primarily by legislation, but that also arise from a socio-historical context. Furthermore, it describes technological trends in the media sector that influence media consumption patterns. Finally, it covers the transformation of the relationship between public service media and their audience. The audience and their expectations are identified as the key source of public service media legitimacy. The research in the thesis aims to analyze to what extent and how the public service media in Europe use audience analysis when defending their own legitimacy. It also presents specific recommendations and results of the author's own quantitative pilot research on a representative sample of the Czech population, which verifies the potential of some of these recommendations on the example of the Czech Television's perception.
Values in fairy tale movies
Sedláček, Mojmír ; Gillernová, Ilona (advisor) ; Boukalová, Hedvika (referee)
This thesis deals with values in fairy tale movies. Its aim is to explore the possibilities of tracking values in fairy tale movies, because fairy tales serve as an important source of values for a child in the process of socialization. The theoretical part presents basic concepts of values, approaches to film research from a psychological point of view and observes the importance of fairy tales for a child. These topics are connected by socialization of a child and the role of media in adopting of values. Original research consists of content analysis of selected sample of Czech and Czechoslovak fairy tale movies. Certain characteristics, on which we can think about the values expressed in selected movies, are described.

Qualitative analysis examines various tales and describes value characteristics of particular characters in selected movies. Diploma project represents a contribution to the psychology of media and embraces media research as an important part of the socialization process.
The implementation of lethal AI systems on the battlefield and its implication on warfare
Schoenemeyer, Julian ; Hays II, George (advisor) ; Solovyeva, Anzhelika (referee)
This paper examines the role of lethal AI weapon systems on the battlefield and its implications for the classical concept of warfare developed by Carl von Clausewitz. Furthermore, it addresses the consequences that a proliferation of these systems can have on the current security orders. To examine both issues, my study uses a qualitative research design that consists out of two cases. My methodological approach uses a content analysis approach that is based on objective and subjective characteristics of each system. Moreover, I differentiate between airborne and ground-based systems. The results that I generated from this case study indicates only a weak effect of lethal autonomous weapon systems on the classical concept of warfare. These autonomous robotic systems rather enhance and modify the existing theory. A similar correlation can be found regarding the second research question that a proliferation of LAWS has also only a limited effect on current global security orders. Their effects are more of regional significance. Therefore, my study concludes that the effects of LAWS on the classical concept of warfare is marginal, likewise to the effects on global security structures. A possible limitation of my study is that it doesn't take offensive fully autonomous weapon systems into account...

Brunovská, Ema ; Ochrana, František (advisor) ; Vejchodská, Eliška (referee)
CHARLES UNIVERSITY FACULTY OF SOCIAL SCIENCES Institute of Social Studies Department of Public and Social Policy Master's Thesis 2023 Ema Brunovská CHARLES UNIVERSITY FACULTY OF SOCIAL SCIENCES Institute of Social Sciences Department of Public and Social Policy The impact of the Russian-Ukrainian war on the formation of the energy policy in the European Union Master's thesis Author: Ema Brunovská Study programme: Public and Social Policy Supervisor: prof. PhDr. František Ochrana, DrSc. Year of the defence: 2023 Abstract The Russia-Ukraine conflict has caused substantial problems to the European Union's energy policy, disrupting the region's energy security and posing repercussions for the transition to a lowering the heavily carbon energy system. The purpose of this thesis is to assess the influence of the Russia-Ukraine war on EU energy policy and prospective changes as a result of the situation. The study investigates the development of energy policy inside the EU using retrograde analysis and a historical institutionalism approach. It examines the implications of Russian gas and oil supply constraints, the possible implications on energy affordability and security, and the necessity for alternative energy sources. The thesis gives insights into the evolving dynamics of EU energy security by analysing...
The First World Social Media War: Impacts of Social Media Networks on the Russo-Ukrainian War
Ženíšek, Jan ; Střítecký, Vít (advisor) ; Špelda, Petr (referee)
This thesis aims to investigate the possible implication of social media networks to warfare. Chiefly in terms of the application of social media networks as a supplementary instrument in the scope of conventional warfare. The research is based on the development of the first year of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The main data source for the analysis is information about Authors and their Tweets from the social media network Twitter. For the purpose of the research, a custom data collection algorithm was developed to obtain a sample of more than two million Tweets that were published in connection with the Russo-Ukrainian war or Tweets that further interacted with such content. The gathered data from Twitter are analyzed in the context of two additional open-source datasets containing information about the individual attacks by both belligerents and the volume of international donations to Ukraine using volumetric analysis. Additionally, Twitter-related data are processed using social media analysis to determine the key individuals and groups in the social network via measuring betweenness centrality and modularity optimization. The thesis concludes that social media networks have the potential to impact a broad audience and mobilize international support. Further, the research discovered evidence that...
The instrumentalisation and weaponisation of migrants, its impacts, and how the EU responds: the case of Belarus
Škopková, Lucie ; Parízek, Michal (advisor) ; Kazharski, Aliaksei (referee)
This diploma thesis will focus on the weaponisation of migration as a hybrid threat posed to states in an attempt to destabilise their internal systems. The case study of the Poland-Belarus border crisis will be used to examine and illustrate how the European Union can address such hybrid attacks and how this reflects on the notion of the European Union as a 'normative power'. This will be done by conducting a content analysis of relevant news articles from EURACTIV, EUobserver, and POLITICO on the case study and by holding interviews with experts and academics. The notion of the European Union as a normative power will be explored through the lens of realism and neo-realism, focusing on the role of human rights and the European Union's reliance on sanctions. This will help to explore the conclusion that the conceptualisation of the European Union should be more nuanced, making it appear as a civilian power with strong normative foundations in practice rather than a solely normative power.
Political communication and self-presentation of the chosen chairmen of political parties in the Chamber of Deputies on social networks
Kohoutová, Kateřina ; Hrůzová, Andrea (advisor) ; Škvrňák, Michael (referee)
Tato bakalářská práce se zabývá analýzou politické komunikace a sebeprezentace vybraných předsedů politických stran/hnutí v Poslanecké sněmovně na sociálních sítích Instagram a Facebook. Sledované období v této práci představují dva měsíce před volbami do Poslanecké sněmovny Parlamentu České republiky, tedy 8. 8. - 8. 10. 2021. Vybranými předsedy jsou za vládnoucí strany Ivan Bartoš (Pirátská strana) a za opoziční strany Tomio Okamura (hnutí Svobodná a přímá demokracie). Cílem bakalářské práce je aplikovat výzkumný problém: Prolínání osobní a oficiální politické komunikace skrze sociální sítě vede k dominanci osobnosti v politické komunikaci, což směřuje k personalizaci, sebeprezentaci, celebritizaci a emocionalizaci. Nejprve jsou v práci definovány hlavní teoretické pojmy na základě použití české a zahraniční odborné literatury. Práce se opírá o provedenou kvantitativní obsahovou analýzu příspěvků zvolených předsedů na sociálních sítích. Dle užité odborné literatury a uskutečněné analýzy práce dochází k závěru, že ve sledovaném období je možné jasně pozorovat prolínání osobní a polické komunikace na profilech Ivana Bartoše. V jeho případě převládá personalizovaná politická komunikace, která je založena převážně na sebeprezentaci a celebritizaci osobnosti, jde primárně o osobní sdělení, které jsou částečně...
The media image of the second round of the presidential election on television
Tomková, Aneta ; Chrenčík, Roman (advisor) ; Jirák, Jan (referee)
This master's thesis deals with the analysis of the media image of presidential candidates in the second round of presidential elections in the Czech Republic in January 2023. The aim of the thesis is to examine, through quantitative and qualitative content analysis of pre-election presidential debates, how individual candidates were presented on public and private television stations, and whether the principles of objectivity and impartiality were adhered to by the moderators. The first part of the thesis focuses on explaining key terms related to the subject matter, such as direct presidential election, media image, political communication, and the difference between public and private media. The presidential candidates and their political backgrounds are also introduced. The main part of the thesis is devoted to the analysis of the pre-election presidential debates. The quantitative analysis provides precise data on the extent of airtime allocated to each candidate, the number and nature of questions asked, and other relevant factors. The qualitative analysis allows for a deeper examination of the course of debates, the moderators' approach to individual candidates, and the identification of possible violations of the principles of objectivity and impartiality. The results of the analyses...
Analysis of the Sunday Columns of České Slovo and Venkov in Selected Years
Málek, Michal ; Köpplová, Barbara (advisor) ; Cebe, Jan (referee)
The diploma thesis Analysis of the Sunday Columns of České Slovo and Venkov in Selected Years is devoted to the analysis of sunday supplements and columns of the daily newspapers České slovo and Venkov in 1933 and 1943. The aim of the thesis was to find out what these supplements and columns looked like, what topics they dealt with, what their character was and how they changed in the selected time horizon and historical context. A content analysis of the sunday newspaper columns and supplements was used to determine what these columns looked like, what their structure was, and what topics they covered. The analysis itself always included the first sunday edition of each month from 1933 and 1943. The analysis also showed that the sunday columns and supplements of both newspapers had an entertainment function and provided readers with mainly relaxing reading in the form of fiction and interest or popular science columns. In addition, it was found that these sunday columns were also largely aimed at women and children, to whom separate supplements and columns were devoted. The diploma thesis also explains how the different political focus of the two newspapers was reflected in these sunday supplements and how this content were affected by propaganda during the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.
