Political Culture and Czech Presidential Election of 2018
Novotná, Petra ; Štefek, Martin (advisor) ; Znoj, Milan (referee)
As was shown in Czech presidential election of 2013, surprisingly, selection of candidates for Czech president seems to be quite abundantly discussed across the society. This thesis is based on observation of presidential election campaign for the presidential election of 2018 and related aspects of Czech political culture. Considering the theoretical support of my conclusions, I employed crucial works of Czech and foreign theoretist's works on political culture from the perspective of political science, sociology, history and anthropology. The purpose of this thesis is, by employing the discourse analysis, to describe, how is the presidency perceived today. Building of that, I will link these acknowledgements with some specifics of Czech/Czechoslovak president and with elements of Czech political culture, as observed since the beginning of 20th century.

Stachová, Monika ; Doubek, Vratislav (advisor) ; Štefek, Martin (referee)
The bachelor thesis scrutinizes various strategies of German associations in České Budějovice and their effect on the local German population in the process of forming German identity. It draws its attention to turning points in urban and associational history, i.e. the early 1860s marking the split up of Liedertafel into two national entities, 1872 as the opening of the German House, further, the year the new mayor Josef Taschek came into office, and the beginning of the First World War. It attempts to interpret the mechanisms through which the associations were forming the identity, as a symbolic civil war of meanings. In connection to that, it examines whether those associations developed any kind of political activities or not. In addition, it suggests possible link between local policy and associational life. It focuses on drawing a trajectory of identity development from utraquism to Germanness and frames it in the larger sociopolitical context. Moreover, it concentrates on the position changes of Germans and the interdependence between the urban and rural space. Key words: identity, associational life, memory, local patriotism, Budweiser Germans, České Budějovice, language policy, associational policy

Development of relations between the Union of Czechoslovak writers and the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia in the 1960s
Broučková, Kristina ; Štefek, Martin (advisor) ; Doubek, Vratislav (referee)
The objective of this bachelor thesis is to reflect key moments of the development of relations between the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia and the Union of Czechoslovak Writers in the 1960s when the cultural sphere was no more understood as autonomous but should represent ideological superstructure of the regime. The following work tends to describe the development of this uneven relation in view of the fact that yet in 1962 the party leadership considered this creative union along with its magazines to be the "gear-lever" of the regime. However, in the course of next few years the conflicts between the monopole incumbent and the creative union were escalating and eventually in 1970, after the invasion by the armies of the Warsaw Pact in 1968, led to the demise of UCW. Thus, following bachelor thesis raises questions such as; if and when, from the perspective of CPC, the Union of Czechoslovak Writers terminated to play the role of the "gear-lever" and which methods were consequently introduced by the party apparatus.
Israeli political system as a consociational democracy?
Ondráček, Dušan ; Hesová, Zora (advisor) ; Štefek, Martin (referee)
(anglicky) The aim of the work is to introduce the model of consociational democracy created by A. Lijphart, Dutch's political scientist, as one of the possible constructs for establishing and maintaining democracy in the segmented societies. This model is applied to Israel, which for reasons that the work also deals with, can be termed socially segmented. The application of model focuses exclusively on the four characteristics of the consociational democracy, as defined by Democracy in Plural Societies (1977). The results of this application are, in the end, compared to the thesis that calls Israel a semi-consociational democracy.

Taking into account the long-term trend of TOP 09 support among youth and especially students, we will try to get a more detailed characterization of this group of citizens. The data are obtained from 365 questionnaires structured into several thematic units at micro, meso and macro levels that correspond to the expected impact on political participation. We also deal with the relationship of students to the regime, the openness of the system to participation and its forms, internal efficiency.
