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 article presents partial results of a qualitative study realized in 2006 between Czech men and women managers. The purpose of the study was to compare the situation and conditions of men and women in managerial work. It shows that the main source of inequalities is the need of conciliation of managerial work and household and family duties. The division of non-paid labor in the families of our respondents is very gender unequal.

Fatherhood has experienced many transformations in the past years, as well as the institution of family and relationships between partners, parents and children. The social science discourse reflects those changes, but quite often through a prism of values and ideologies, and only rarely is gender neutral. This article presents today’s discourses of fatherhood, their paradoxes and one way streets in which they sometimes end.

The process of the individualization of the society has already been in progress for several centuries. One of its consequences is the increase of differences among individuals, the advocacy of the individual interests instead of the collective ones and mostly the growth of the space for free choices and decisions. The second side of the increasing freedom is the growth of the insecurity. However, this process is irreversible.
