Trusinová, Romana

The article examines age as a possible group identity. It sets out to determine which age groups in society today have a stronger sense of identity and the source of that identity, while drawing on the tenets of social psychology and the theories of social identity and optimal distinctiveness. The analysis is based on representative data for the Czech population over the age of 20 drawn from the European Social Survey Round 4 and the International Social Survey Programme 2003.

Většina spáchaných trestných činů není odhalena policií samotnou. Její práce, pokud má být efektivní, výrazně závisí na ochotě občanů s touto institucí spolupracovat. Příspěvek porovnává míru této spolupráce v České republice a v ostatních evropských zemích, které se zúčastnily výzkumu ESS R 5, a zaměřuje se na faktory, které ji ovlivňují.

In the years 2002 to 2012, Czech society experienced a series of events and changes. Similar events and changes, however, also took place in other European countries. State and development of attitudes, values and behaviour of populations of European countries in connection with these events and changes is explored by the European Social Survey research project. This book is devoted to the attitudes, values and behaviour and their changes in Czech society in the last decade.

Fungování každého společenského systému je podmíněno interpersonální a institucionální důvěrou, která upravuje vztahy mezi lidmi a přispívá k demokratickému uspořádání v zemi. Důvěra v orgány činné v trestním řízení, tedy konkrétně v policii a soudy, představuje v současnosti jedno z hlavních výzkumných témat. Článek si klade za cíl zhodnotit vývoj důvěry v tyto instituce v mezinárodní perspektivě, a představit důvěru jako vícedimenzionální koncept.

Moravcová, Eva, Tomášek, Jan

The trend towards harsher punishment of offenders, usually termed the ‘new punitiveness’, is often explained as a response to deepening social and economic uncertainty. One important area that criminal policy research has long dealt with is public attitudes to punishment. Statements that the public want more severe punishments for those who break the law are often used to justify introducing measures to make the criminal justice system harsher.

Moravcová, Eva

Social order and security depend on mutual cooperation between the police and the public. Since the majority of crime is not detected by the police itself, informal control is needed to ensure order in society. This article aims to describe the circumstances under which people´s willingness to cooperate with the police is enhanced.

While fear of crime is frequently discussed internationally, it is currently addressed by only a limited number of Czech studies. The aim of the paper is to present the main methodological concepts that have influenced the research on fear of crime and the design of indicators by which this phenomenon is measured.
