The topic of corruption has recently moved from the periphery to the centre of social scientific attention.

Article
This article extends the discussion on the ‘dark side’ of social capital in sport which has recently been increasingly conceptualized in civil society studies.

Na tyto se sportem spjaté proměny je nahlíženo jako na důsledky širších socio-kulturn...

Abstrakt: Prezentovaná stať hledá dílčí odpověď na otázku, zda se média mohou podílet na rozvoji mediální gramotnosti. Studie vychází z předpokladu, že mediální gramotnost se projevuje v reflexivitě mediálních publik a že k posílení této reflexivity mohou přispět i média referující o sobě samých. Paralelně s tím upozorňuje na kontext, v němž k tako...

www.sirius-project.eu Despite the polarization in public and policy debates generated by the post-2014 influxes of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, European countries need to devise an evidence-based strategy towards tackling migration and asylum issues using a constructive and sustainable approach. The proposed project, SIRIUS, builds on a multi-dimensional conceptual framework in which host country or political-institutional, societal and individual-related conditions function either as enablers or as barriers to migrants’, refugees’ and asylum seekers’ integration via the labour market. SIRIUS has three main objectives: A descriptive objective: To provide systematic evidence on post-2014 migrants, refugees and asylum applicants especially women and young people and their potential for labour market employment and, more broadly, social integration. An explanatory objective: To advance knowledge on the complexity of labour market integration for post-2014 migrants, refugees and asylum applicants, and to explore their integration potential by looking into their spatial distribution (in relation to the distribution of labour demand across the labour market), while taking into account labour market characteristics and needs in different country and socio-economic contexts. A prescriptive objective: To advance a theoretical framework for an inclusive integration agenda, outlining an optimal mix of policy pathways for labour market integration including concrete steps that Member States and other European countries along with the EU can take to ensure that migrant-integration policies and the broader system of workforce-development, training, and employment programmes support new arrivals’ access to decent work opportunities and working conditions. The research design consists of a multidimensional theoretical framework that combines macro-level (legal/policy/institutional), meso-level (organizational), and micro-level (individual) enabling and hindering factors impacting on (the potential for) labour market and social integration, a cross-national comparative design that includes seven European countries with different degrees of exposure to the recent migration and refugee crisis, different institutional and socio-economic contexts, an integrated methodological approach based on multiple methods (quantitative data gathering and analyses of macro-economic, labour market forecasting, qualitative analyses and related data gathering tools such as in-depth interviews, focus groups, observations, organizational study) and an innovative dissemination plan involving online priority action networks, film essays, festival, job affair and an applied game for young migrants, refugees, asylum applicants, scientific and policy dialogue workshops and conferences).
Project
This project will analyse the politics of citizen involvement in health care in the Czech Republic. In particular, the research will be focused on the dynamics between critically engaged citizens and health care policy. The project will, firstly, analyse the legislative and institutional framework of citizen involvement in health care in the Czech Republic. Furthermore, the dynamics between health care users and health care institutions will be studied on two timely examples: the anti-vaccination movement and mental care reform. Last but not least, the project will analyse the role of digital media in these processes. These analytical objectives will have implications for media studies and for social theory, in particular for examining the role of the digital media in civic engagement and for an understanding of the relationship between reflexivity in late-modern societies and social change. The research will combine qualitative and quantitative methodologies and the data will be gathered both online and offline.
