2004 - 2007

The objective of the project is to identify the main changes in the labour market and to study their context and impact on the organisation of private life among Czech people. The project focuses on the changing forms of partner and family cohabitation, upbringing, and the plurality of life strategies and lifestyles. It analyses the interaction between the work and domestic spheres in Czech society, where they overlap, and how they influence one another. Using large-scale qualitative research and ten qualitative probes focusing on the specific groups and segments of society indicative of the trends and directions of social development the project aims to contribute to explaining the interaction between changes in the labour market and the organisation of private life among the Czech population, especially changes and the development of new forms of private, family and partner life among individual groups of the population, and to evaluating people’s life perspectives, strategies and satisfaction.

The chapter is focused on the development of the position of women in the labour market and on the development of the conditions for work-life balance in the workplace historically from the 1950s to the present. We argue that the high employment of women does not automatically imply women’s emancipation and fulfilment of their rights as citizens in a society based on a gender contract with the gendered arrangements of work and care as conflicting spheres.

The position of Czech institutions towards lone-parenthood changed substantially over the course of last half of the 20th century. The main changes that did take place were at the level of public and professional discourse and at the level of social policies. The chapter describes those changes and analyses the main difficulties that one-parent families in Czech Republic faced during this period.

In this chapter the authors focus on the integration of foreigners into so-called ‘core’ institutions, which determine a migrant’s socioeconomic status, opportunities, and available resources. Special attention is given to the access to the social security system, to the health care system, to the education system, and last but not least to the labour market.

This study analyse the strategies of the different actors involved at various levels of society: families, individuals (women and men), the companies and organisations that use the given policies, and the conditions and opportunities for combining work and family. In part this refers specifically to the individual strategies used to combine work and family commitments by women, who are still considered to be primarily responsible for running the family.
