This publication focuses specifically on how these processes operate from the perspective of gender equality.

The qualitative study is focused on the issue of equal access of women (and men) into managerial and decision-making positions in a social enterprise and conventional one in the Czech Republic. The results of the study reflect a lack of focus on gender equality, low sensitivity to gender based discrimination, recurrence of gender stereotypes and the lack of internal policies (formal procedures) to promote women in leadership positions in the surveyed firms.

Based on qualitative research of women that cared in the past or care now for their frail elderly mothers, this article aims to describe and explain some of the factors leading to the predominance of women in informal care for the elderly. The article builds on Sandra Harding’s and Joan W. Scott’s concept of gender. Their concept defines gender as a category operating at multiple interconnected levels.

The spatial concentration of social disadvantage in rural areas not only poses a risk to social cohesion but also represents a challenge for public policy. This article draws on a multidimensional concept of disadvantage to study spatial aspects of disadvantage in Czech rural areas. Current studies aimed at identifying ‘inner peripheries’ as areas with an increased risk of social exclusion fail to distinguish between different forms of disadvantage.

This article presents an analysis of the construct validity of the Right-Wing Authoritarianism (RWA) scale measured on a nationally representative sample of respondents in the Czech Republic.

This article develops a critical analysis of transformations of the idea and practice of women’s emancipation in late-modern Western society under the influence of globalizing advanced capitalism.

Cílem článku je aplikovat pojem hermeneutického kruhu na pozici sociologa. Hermeneutický problém v sociologii je analyzován na oblasti výzkumu sociálního jednání a s ohledem na otázku, jak může sociologické rozumění postihovat význam přisuzovaný jednání samotnými aktéry. Ačkoli existuje několik významných teoretiků, kteří ideu hermeneutiky přenesli do sociologie, žádný z nich se detailně nezabýval tématem hermeneutického kruhu.
