What Is (Not) Talked About. An Analysis of Political Discourse of Care During Covid Pandemic
Homfray, Šárka ; Jiroutová Kynčlová, Tereza (advisor) ; Kolářová, Kateřina (referee)
The thesis examines the political discourse on informal care during the first four pandemic waves from March 2020 to February 2022. The study explores three main themes: crisis care allowance, distance learning, and the position of single parents in the pandemic. The author uses critical discursive analysis methods, as developed by Norman Fairclough, to identify prevalent images and themes of informal care in political discourse. The analysis also assesses the degree to which informal care has been gendered and the interconnections between political discourse and other discourses, such as journalistic and expert discourses. Finally, the conclusion of the thesis provides an evaluation of the effects of the discourse analysed and assesses the political representation of informal carers.

Martinů, Patricie ; Švelch, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Švelch, Jan (referee)
1 Abstract This Master's thesis aims to explore the impact of the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons released in March 2020 for the Nintendo Switch console on players during the Covid-19 pandemic by analyzing forum posts and articles. The thesis further typifies the community of players of the game that post on the forums Animal Crossing Community and The Bell Tree Forums, their motivations for playing, and the ways in which the game provided them with an escape from the reality of the pandemic. Furthermore, the thesis partly focuses on media reflection of this phenomenon through the analysis of articles describing their own experience with the game. This thesis intends to achieve this through qualitative research methods, specifically through a case study using the method of analytical induction. The first chapters in the theoretical part of the thesis show that the existing knowledge about the impact of games and media in general on the mental health of people, and adolescents in particular, is contradictory. However, the research part of the thesis, which is divided into chapters based on the individual research questions, shows that in the case of this particular period, i.e. from the release of the game during the months of the most severe pandemic measures to their temporary easing in the summer of...
State responsibility to prevent and control a pandemic
Mazánková, Zuzana ; Bílková, Veronika (advisor) ; Šturma, Pavel (referee)
1 Abstract State responsibility to prevent and control a pandemic The submitted thesis explores state responsibility under public international law and how it relates to the obligation to prevent, protect against, control and provide a public health response to international spread of disease. Epidemics are hardly a new or unprecedented phenomenon, and the increased incidence of seasonal influenza strains and other viral respiratory infections are a recurring theme every year. However, the issue of state responsibility for international spread of infectious diseases came to the forefront lately due to the events at the beginning of 2020 when a global pandemic of the new coronavirus COVID- 19 appeared, causing over seven million deaths by October 2023 and significant economic losses. The virus was first identified in China, which reported the outbreak to the World Health Organization (WHO) at the end of 2019. Shortly after that, despite public health measures being implemented, the infection began to spread worldwide via international travel, and multiple reports emerged that China had had information about this infectious disease a month before reporting it and deliberately concealed it, which would constitute a violation of International Health Regulations. Given the damage incurred by states, businesses...

Rozlíšenie krízových a inovačných opatrení vyvolaných pandémiou covid-19 v spoločnosti zo stavebného priemyslu
Balogová, Patrícia
The subject of the present thesis is the development of a company in the construction industry, PORR a. s. during the COVID-19 pandemic. The main objective is to distinguish the crisis and innovation measures introduced in the company during the COVID-19 pandemic. Part of the thesis is to examine the digital technologies intro-duced in PORR a. s. as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic situation. The first part of the thesis focuses on the development of the Czech Republic and the construction industry in the period before and during the pandemic. Based on the available literature, we define the measures implemented by the state and construction companies during the pandemic period in order to minimize the risk and ensure the continuity of projects. We also zoom in on the crisis management needs and opportunities that the COVID-19 pandemic brought to construction companies at this time. In the second part, PORR Inc. together with the identification of the measures put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the analysis of the financial indicators provided by the company and supplemented by openended interviews with the company's management, chief economist and the company's employees in each department, in relation to the measures introduced during the pandemic, the impact of the various anti-pandemic measures introduced on the company's performance has been identified. The construction industry has gradually embraced digital technologies over the last two decades as the 'technology push' continues to overcome the usual passivity typical of the industry. PORR a. s. has applied several digital pro-measures during the pandemic period, such as digital signature, SAPP economic system, implementation of stbuildings in the online space, use of BIM and 3D technology on construction sites. The company's main objective during the pandemic was to minimize the impact on the business during the pandemic, such as increased material costs, extended construction completion dates and efforts to make work easier for employees. By reacting quickly to the pandemic situation, implementing anti-pandemic and work support measures for employees, the company was able to overcome the downturn associated with the pandemic in 2020 with a profit in the following year. The final contribution of the thesis is a summary definition and differentiation of the measures introduced at the time of the pandemic by PORR a. s., into measures belonging to the group of crisis measures and innovative measures that can be taken by the construction company at the time of other, similar social situations, threatening the operation of the company.
