Analysis of family formation and dissolution processes using multistate demography modelling
Dušek, Zdeněk ; Rychtaříková, Jitka (advisor) ; Kocourková, Jiřina (referee)
The main aim of this thesis is to analyse the development of the processes of family formation and dissolution in the Czech Republic between 1993 and 2008 using multistate demography. By this method, we analyze probability of transition between individual marriage states and events, which characterise these transitions. The first part of the analysis deals with the population as a whole, while the second part analyses only the part of population in fertile ages. LIPRO program was used to create a model of marital status based on data for the Czech Republic as well as for producing a forecast of population divided by marital status for the years of 2019?2023. Other parts of this thesis support the main aim of the thesis. The level of marriage and divorce rate were analysed between 1993 and 2008 as well as potential factors that could influence the level of above mentioned processes. Rising number of cohabitations could be one of those factors and therefore a special attention is paid to the development of this type of coexistence. Socioeconomic development and family and social policy are mentioned as well, because they could also have significant impact on the processes of formation and dissolution of families. The above mentioned factors and their relationship to the marriage rate are analysed using the...
The correlation between the automotive industry output cycle and the business cycle in the Czech Republic
Yin, Shiqi ; Jeřábek, Petr (advisor) ; Merrino, Serena (referee) ; Čech, František (referee)
This paper aims to investigate the correlation between the output cycle and the business cycle of the Czech Republic's core industry, the automotive industry. The paper begins by analysing the volatility of each variable, and finds that the trends of the automotive industry output cycle and the business cycle align, while the automotive industry output cycle keeps lagging behind the business cycle. Secondly, this paper adopts the VAR model to examine the relationship between the Czech automotive output and its macroeconomic indicators, using the real GDP and the Gross Value added (GVA) to represent the macroeconomic situation. The results show that there is a correlation between Czech automotive industry output and the macroeconomy, but the correlation is asymmetric, which means the automotive industry is more sensitive to macroeconomic shocks but has weaker impact on the macroeconomy. Finally, this paper also measures the correlation between the automotive industry and monetary policy (M2) and finds that the monetary policy shows strong stability and independence, which can affect the progress of the automotive industry, but no reverse effect has been observed.

El Ouri, Filip ; Horská, Kateřina (advisor) ; Klepal, Jaroslav (referee)
The subject of this thesis is to present the results of my ethnographic research in the setting of one of the most active Czech neopagan organizations, "Slovanský kruh" ( the Slavic Circle ), focusing primarily on capturing the course of gatherings organized by this group, including their ritual component, and how participants describe their experience from these gatherings. In addition, I focus on the role participants attribute to these meetings and experiences in their daily lives, and how they describe their other religious practices. My findings in this thesis are based on data collected during my participant observation at the gatherings of this organization and from interviews with some of the participants of those gatherings.

Libová, Gabriela ; Stracený, Josef (advisor) ; Fapšo, Marek (referee)
The main goal of the work was to find out what attitude students of high schools in Prague have towards political events in the Czech Republic. In the theoretical part, I focused, among other things, on questionnaire surveys processed by the organization Jeden svět na školách and on the image of the young generation portrayed in the media. I suggested several options for making the classes of political science more attractive and better motivate students to be interested in the topic. In the practical part, I used the questionnaire method and compared the obtained data with my hypotheses. Other methods were analysis, and comparison of sources and obtained data.
Categorization of Eurosceptic political parties in Slovakia and the Czech Republic
Barilova, Emma Lujza ; Lenčéš Chalániová, Daniela (advisor) ; Martinková, Viera (referee)
This thesis explored party-based Euroscepticism in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Euroscepticism is a growing phenomenon, and more importantly, it is moving from the periphery into mainstream political life. Twenty years anniversary of the Czech Republic and Slovakia entering the European Union is coming up next year, and it seems that two decades in the Union left a negative imprint on the population that was once excited about entering a new era. Seeing as the majority of research and categorization of Eurosceptic political movements in Slovakia and the Czech Republic was conducted around the accession period (2004), we decided to compare current Eurosceptic political parties in Slovakia and the Czech Republic in terms of the magnitude (soft/hard Euroscepticism) of and motivations for their scepticism (ideologically vs. strategically driven) and position them within the Eurosceptic space (as defined by Jan Rovny in 2004). We categorized eight Eurosceptic political parties which gained seats in at least one of the two last legislative elections, four Slovak parties (elections in 2016 and 2020) and four Czech Eurosceptic parties (elections in 2017 and 2021). We analyzed their electoral manifestos and consulted secondary sources to categorize them as follows. Four parties can be categorized as...

The Role of Trust in Media in Resilience: The Cases of the Czech and Slovak Republic
Doubravová, Barbora ; Bahenský, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Földes, Kristián (referee)
The marter thesis deals with the role of trust in media in resilience. The aim of the thesis is to explore the approach to trust in media by the state and journalists as a factor in countering the issue of disinformation, with potentially co-explanatory differences between the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic in their societal resilience. The thesis utilizes exploratory research of a qualitative nature. The results are primarily extracted through 15 interviews with journalists and national officials, as well as experts from both countries. As the results illustrate, the state and media sector in both countries consider trust in the media as a crucial factor in resilience against disinformation and countering disinformation. Journalists' perspectives on the subject are similar in both countries, while the approaches of national officials are to a certain extent differen. In the Czech Republic, national officials express a stronger criticism regarding the quality of media on the national level, at the same time, a passive approach to building their trust. On the other hand, national officials in Slovakia depict a greater eagerness to contribute to trust in media. However, it is often diminished by a lack of resources or political will. The results outline the necessity of a comprehensive...

The impact of the COVID-19 crisis on meeting the objectives of the EU's Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025 in the Czech Republic and Austria
Jančíková, Natálie ; Váška, Jan (advisor) ; Bauer, Paul (referee)
This Master's Thesis investigates the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025 in Austria and Czechia, with a focus on the strategy's goals of freedom from violence and stereotypes, thriving in a gender-equal economy, and equal leadership throughout society. The research adopts Sylvia Walby's theory of gender regimes to provide context, which highlights the role of the state in shaping gender equality outcomes. Austria and Czechia are identified as social democratic and neoliberal gender regimes, respectively. This mixed-methods study employs thematic analysis and comparative case study and combines qualitative data gathered through ethnographic methods and quantitative data from open statistics. The thesis finds that Czechia operates as a neoliberal gender regime, with a limited role of the state in supporting women at risk of gender-based violence. In contrast, Austria's social democratic gender regime has provided robust support during the pandemic, with a centralized system of shelters and a state-wide 24/7 women's helpline. The study contributes to the development of gender regime theory and offers a nuanced understanding of the pandemic's impact on gender equality in different gender regimes. The findings have relevance for ongoing academic debate on the...
