  • Konstrukce prostorů participace: Zapojování občanů do procesu tvorby rozvojových plánů měst z pohledu jejich tvůrců

    Mička, Pavel; Veselý, Arnošt; Beránková, Petra Alexandra (2014)
    The work deals with constructing of participatory spaces in the process of urban development planning. The topic of involving citizens into planning is viewed from the point of planners. A concept of participation in this text is conceived in the sense of invented spaces built from above. The research perspective is an interpretative one, anchored in the constructivist epistemology. Therefore the main question is: How do planners reflect involving citizens in the planning? Firstly, the authoress demonstrates the importance of her topic by putting it into the context of wider social dynamics related to the crises of representative democracy and emerging of sub-politics. She reveals that the trend of building participatory opportunities is strengthening. The important question is formulated: How is the role of public in the strategic planning constructed? On the base of analytical induction of semi-structured interviews with planners, the authoress creates her own typology of ideal-type approaches to participation. These types of approaches came out from a distinction of the extent and the aim of spaces of participation. The involvement of citizens can be seen either as building of community, activation of elites, mapping of public preferences or as consultation with local experts.

    Parízek, Michal; Kučerová, Irah; Szabo, Jakub (2015)
    The main goal of this bachelor thesis is to evaluate possible ideological changes inside the IMF in the time period from 1989 to 2014. This goal is achieved by examining annual reports published by the IMF, with attention on the most important tools of the IMF. Issues discussed through the IMF's surveillance and conditionality are the main indicator of possible reforms and changes. Based on the existent literature and example of the reform of the World Bank four hypotheses are formulated. Those hypotheses are dedicated to monitoring changes in perceived importance of welfare state, small government, good governance and fiscal policy. Firstly, current literature is presented with definition of the main concepts used in this thesis. Secondly, important tools of the IMF are described. Thirdly, collected data is described and this thesis concludes with data evaluation. With application of the methods of descriptive statistics and content analysis this thesis concludes with statement, that important shift from emphasis on weak state to strong state occurred and good governance became important theme of IMF's interest.

  • Global guidelines for the sustainable use of non-native trees to prevent tree invasions and mitigate their negative impacts

    Brundu, G; Pauchard, A; Pyšek, P; Pergl, J; Bindewald, AM; Brunori, A; Canavan, S; Campagnaro, T; Celesti-Grapow, L; de Sá Dechoum, M (Pensoft Publishers, 2022-05-13)
    Sustainably managed non-native trees deliver economic and societal benefits with limited risk of spread to adjoining areas. However, some plantations have launched invasions that cause substantial damage to biodiversity and ecosystem services, while others pose substantial threats of causing such impacts. The challenge is to maximise the benefits of non-native trees, while minimising negative impacts and preserving future benefits and options. 
 A workshop was held in 2019 to develop global guidelines for the sustainable use of non-native trees, using the Council of Europe – Bern Convention Code of Conduct on Invasive Alien Trees as a starting point. The global guidelines consist of eight recommendations: 1) Use native trees, or non-invasive non-native trees, in preference to invasive non-native trees; 2) Be aware of and comply with international, national, and regional regulations concerning non-native trees; 3) Be aware of the risk of invasion and consider global change trends; 4) Design and adopt tailored practices for plantation site selection and silvicultural management; 5) Promote and implement early detection and rapid response programmes; 6) Design and adopt tailored practices for invasive non-native tree control, habitat restoration, and for dealing with highly modified ecosystems; 7) Engage with stakeholders on the risks posed by invasive non-native trees, the impacts caused, and the options for management; and 8) Develop and support global networks, collaborative research, and information sharing on native and non-native trees. 
 The global guidelines are a first step towards building global consensus on the precautions that should be taken when introducing and planting non-native trees. They are voluntary and are intended to complement statutory requirements under international and national legislation. The application of the global guidelines and the achievement of their goals will help to conserve forest biodiversity, ensure sustainable forestry, and contribute to the achievement of several Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations linked with forest biodiversity.
  • Social Reality Construction of Muhammadiyah Citizens in Respect of LAZISMU during the Covid-19 Pandemic

    Radhiyatul Fithri; Baidarus Baidarus (Universitas Muhammadiyah Magelang, 2021-12-01)
    For the Indonesian people, LAZISMU, as an Islamic philanthropic institution, shapes the cultural character of zakat, infaq, and alms. Furthermore, following the outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic, the Muhammadiyah encouraged LAZISMU with raising funds for the program under the slogan "Together Against the Corona Virus." LAZISMU Riau and Pekanbaru city continue to strive to become professional zakat institutions with good governance as a place for distributing charity funds to the public and Persyarikatan members in particular. Muhammadiyah citizens' attitudes toward these two LAZISMUs, on the other hand, are not directly proportional to their engagement in LAZISMU's programs. Muhammadiyah citizens, in particular, believe that LAZISMU Pekanbaru City is a professional Amil Zakat Institution with good governance. The construction of this social reality, however, has not been able to increase their participation in tithing to LAZISMU. This is not the same case with LAZISMU Riau, which was known as an institution with poor governance. However, the ideological aspect is a factor that encourages Muhammadiyah citizens to participate in the LAZISMU program.

  • Local Horizons of Governance. Social Conditions for Good Governance in Rural Development in Poland

    Knieć Wojciech; Goszczyński Wojciech (Sciendo, 2022-03-01)
    The last thirty years have radically changed the nature of local resource management in rural communities throughout Poland (as well as in some other Central and Eastern European countries). New metamorphosis, policy, and funding mechanisms related to Poland’s political transformation and accession to the European Union have radically changed the character of institutions and tools available in rural development. Local communities have evolved along with improved education levels, decline in agricultural employment rates, and increased migrations to cities and Western Europe. This article presents the social conditions for the good governance processes in a selected region of Poland. Based on their extended quantitative and qualitative research, the authors discuss a number of phenomena such as the low effectiveness of collective actions, dense networks of informal relations, and the lack of trust in public service institutions despite the deregulation of certain powers. The ethnographic study reveals that while their overall picture may seem quite uniform, local rural communities in Poland tend to differ depending on the economic structure, history, and cultural identity of their inhabitants. Finally, the article analyses difficulties in the implementation of the good governance mechanisms within the country’s local rural communities.
  • The Supreme Court Of Pakistan And Institutionalization: The Case Study Of National Reconciliation Ordinance: Nauman Reayat, Dr. Anwar Ul Mujahid Shah, Dr.muhammad Kaleem, Syed Arshad Ali Shah

    Superior University, 2020
    The Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) is one of the pillars of the Government of Pakistan, which is not only a player in the game of governance, but also has the capacity to rewrite the rules of the game in favor of institutionalization. Various organizations of the state started organizing themselves around rules and hence gave rise to an institutionalized form of constitutional governance. In case of NRO, SCP upheld supremacy of the Constitution of Pakistan 1973, independent of political considerations. It's emphasis on the constitution has driven the process of governance in the country in the direction of institutionalization. This research aims to discover the institutional role of Supreme Court of Pakistan in good governance through its verdict(s) on National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO). The way in which stability, coherence, adaptability, and autonomy have been achieved by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in the said case will be traced and analyzed.

  • L’émergence des élites techniciennes dans la planification participative à Zhuhai

    Liao Liao (Centre d’études en gouvernance de l’Université d’Ottawa / Centre on Governance University of Ottawa, 2019-01-01)
    Depuis les années 1990, la gouvernance participative se généralise dans le monde entier en tant que mode de gouvernance. Cette notion de gouvernance participative séduit également les autorités chinoises, qui cherchent à se transformer et à se légitimer au fil des développements de leur société et des modèles qui circulent de manière transnationale. De nombreuses expérimentations en termes de gouvernance participative ont été mises en place en Chine, du budget participatif à la planification participative. Bien que l’État central ait mis l’accent sur la notion de gouvernance participative, celle-ci reste encore en expérimentation de manière très variée selon les niveaux locaux. Dans cet article, nous allons d’abord traiter du contexte de développement de la participation en Chine, depuis l’État jusqu’aux pratiques locales, tout en évoquant différentes catégories de participation. Nous mettrons en lumière également certains facteurs importants qui favorisent l’émergence de la planification participative et ses implications à l’échelle du quartier. Ensuite, à partir d’une étude de cas approfondie, nous examinerons la planification participative en analysant tour à tour l’objectif, la stratégie et le processus de cette participation. Puis, en nous appuyant sur une approche de sociologie politique, nous mettrons l’accent sur la transformation des acteurs de cette participation à Zhuhai, près de Macao, qui passeront d’« experts techniques » à « élite technicienne ». La quatrième partie montrera le rôle de ces élites techniciennes. En conclusion, nous discuterons de la participation à la chinoise et de ses implications sur le régime local à Zhuhai.
