"Civil Society is a society in which the decisions and actions of families, government, business and nonprofit organizations impact the ability of people to prosper, reach their potential as productive citizens, and flourish as human beings. This session examines the current state of social progress indicators in both the United States and the Czech Republic, the forces that threaten them, hopes for our future, and what we can do to positively impact progress towards this important ideal."

Another focus of her work is dedicated to migration issues and the development of the civil society in the Czech Republic. Currently she is working on a qualitative research project about coal miners and their changing working conditions during the 1990s in the Ostrava region.
