Reforming Czech Social Services: Influence of the Implementation of National Quality Standards̀ Active User Imperative on the Primary Process. In the Czech Republic, a new act reforming social services has been adopted, that by means of the National Quality Standards (NQS) is radically changing the position of the social service users. In this paper, we discuss impact of the NQS̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀ active user imperative on the primary process. We have extracted relevant data from three consecutive case studies of the shelter facilities and focused on those aspects of the intervention that should have been affected by the reform the most profoundly. We found out that adoption and especially real application of the active user principle by the street-level bureaucrats encounter several serious problems. The misunderstanding of or the resistance to the merits of this principle by the street-level bureaucrats often led to its crippled or partial implementation. Consequently, the quality of the social services has not improved or has even decreased. It followed from our research that street-level bureaucrats were either reluctant or helpless when confronted with the requirement to transform or at least significantly modify their everyday practices and approaches towards the clients. As the most resistant element we have revealed conceptions of the client, i.e. shared understanding of clients by street-level bureaucrats. Our findings suggest that street-level bureaucrats should have been involved much more actively and straightforwardly in the discussions over and the planning of the NQS implementation process in their facilities; otherwise they would feel alienated from it and would tend to either circumvent the new requirements or comply with them only selectively and without inner acceptance.

trust/investment game; trust determinants; trustworthiness determinants; reciprocity

Trust and Trustworthiness as a Behavioural Social Norm. We present the results of a trust investment game performed with university students in Slovakia. We discuss the social norms of the participants of our experiment, notably the notions of trust and reciprocity. By analyzing the one-shot version of the game, as well as the case of a repeated game with unspecified number of repetitions, we also show a dependence on outcome of the prior rounds (hence the learning effect) and provide a possible explanation for the choice of behaviour strategies observed in our sample.

Adult Guardianship System in the Czech Republic in Comparison with Selected European Union Countries. In ageing societies, questions of participation of elderly people in social life and the possibilities of a self-determined life in old age are of high importance. The state increasingly is confronted with the task of protecting personal rights of older and incompetent persons. In various societies, the way of protection ranges from paternalistic interventions to approaches stressing autonomy and support of those persons. The article is concerned with the phenomenon of guardianship of incompetent elderly (i.e. persons over 60 years of age) in the Czech Republic. It is based on the international project Advocacies for Frail and Incompetent Elderly in Europe (ADEL) aimed at comparing adult guardianship systems in five European countries (Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany and Spain). The findings inspired a national study a part of which is presented in the article. The essential aims of the national study were: (a) to identify socio-demographic and epidemiologic data on incompetent elderly; (b) to identify socio-demographic data on their guardians. The method was study of documents (court records) and the data collection technique was content analysis. The first and second parts outline the theoretical and methodological framework of guardianship. The third part presents research results. The final part compares the empirical reality in the Czech Republic and selected EU countries participating in the ADEL project. Sociológia 2011, Vol. 43 (No. 3: 266-285)

qualitative research; story-telling; confessional story; writing styles

How I Performed ‘Story-Telling’. A Confessional Story. The article deals with the subject of story-telling as a way to interpret qualitative data. It describes the manner in which this is accomplished (passing through the stages of data collecting and analysis) as well as the difficulties the researcher meets when trying to perform a story-telling. The article is actually the confessional account of the development of a story-telling. It is a story made of other accounts (with different manners of writing: realist, descriptive and interpretative) about ‘what and how’ the respondents would have liked to be (sociologists which have become teachers and engineers which have become businessmen).
