Completed project

Instituce, mýty a přesvědčení: Zkoumání vlivu path-dependency na soudobé diskurzy péče o děti v České republice, Švédsku a Francii

Project duration: 
2009 - 2011

Projekt se zaměřuje na problematiku péče o děti, a to na jedné straně z pohledu státních politik a institucí, a na straně druhé z pohledu veřejných, politických a expertních diskurzů, které odrážejí dominantní mocenský diskurz "správné péče o děti". Za tímto účelem použijeme dva druhy metodologie: institucionální analýzu path-dependency a kritickou analýzu diskurzu. Projekt vychází z předpokladu, že určitá institucionální rozhodnutí přijatá v určitých časových obdobích determinují odlišnost trajektorií různých zemí. Proto provedeme komparativní studii tří zemí: České republiky, Švédska a Francie, a vysvětlíme rozdíly v jejich historicko-institucionálním vývoji. Za druhé předpokládáme silný vliv veřejných, politických a expertních diskurzů na tato institucionální rozhodnutí a vice versa. Budeme proto studovat vzájemné působení institucionálních rozhodnutí a diskurzů, tak jak se odrážejí ve veřejných textech.

Kindergartens continue to be popular to this day and at present almost all Czech children attend these facilities. On the other hand, nurseries nearly vanished in the Czech Republic.

The article offers a comparison of social policies and institutions of care for children younger three years in the Czech Republic and France. The explanation of the differences is found (among other things) in the different development of expert discourses. The discourse thus impacts strongly on the development of institutions.

We examine pre1989 and post1989 work-care models in Czech, Slovak and East German societies. Once problems of the modernized gender model emerged, Czechoslovakia and GDR set two distinct policy paths and differences in work-care practices and values emerged. Based on the institutional and cultural legacy, we explain why the post1989 transition period was accompanied by continuity in work-care models and substantive changes evolved only then, in a period of stability.
