(Non-)Existence of Populism in Modern Japan
Petrželková, Eva ; Karmazin, Aleš (advisor) ; Charvát, Jan (referee)
The word 'populism' has lately been frequently appearing in political discourse all over the world. The word is most often associated with certain persons, such as Donald Trump, Marine LePen, or Andrej Babiš. The reason for this shift in discourse is the fact that many Western countries have been plagued by a wave of (right-wing) populism, for which traditional parties have not found a solution yet. One of the few countries with western-style democracy which has so far been able to avoid this wave is Japan. The goal of this thesis is to find out why that is, and whether there might be any mechanisms within the Japanese political system which prevent the populist phenomenon. The thesis analyzes typical characteristics of populism based on literature about the theory of populism. The thesis then creates a model based on this analysis, and compares it with the current situation in Japan. The model comprises of fifteen criteria which are split into four categories, preconditions for the creation of a populist party, its creation and development process and characteristics, the rhetorical strategies of its leaders/members, and its further development. By applying this model onto the current situation in Japan, the following facts have been uncovered. Japan has been governed by the Liberal Democratic...

The Denial of Holocaust in the Czech Republic
Galstyan, Elen ; Kubátová, Hana (advisor) ; Charvát, Jan (referee)
The master thesis focuses on the denial of holocaust in the Czech Republic. In Europe, revisionism of holocaust is most visible in member states from middle and eastern Europe. The phenomenon is very strong in these states, because they could not cope with the memory of holocaust in postwar years because of the communist regime. Denial of holocaust, or the trivialization of Jewish genocide and other ethnical groups is connected with rise of antisemitism, racism and xenophobia. During 90's of 20th century the trivialization and the denial of holocaust was domain of radical right-wing parties, nowadays these phenomena moved to the mainstream political scene. In the thesis, I write about the era from the end of Second World War to the year 2018. The first chapter defines terms: historical revisionism, trivialization of holocaust, holocaust, shoa and porajmos. In the second chapter, I situate the topic to the context, and I explain the thematic and historical events. The third part describes the 90's of 20th century in the Czech Republic until 2018.
France's mal-être: Exploring the root causes and other explanatory factors behind the rise of radicalization in France.
Gallard, Alice Mathilde ; Aslan, Emil (advisor) ; Charvát, Jan (referee)
This thesis will provide readers with an in-depth understanding of the root causes and risks factors of Islamic radicalisation in France. It argues that Islamic radicalisation in France cannot solely be explained through one factor. This research argues that mental illnesses, deception, trauma and relative deprivation do not give a solid impetus for individuals to radicalize. Rather, radicalisation in France should be understood as an association of socio-economic, psychological, and political factors. Given the misuse of the term, the first chapter has been dedicated to its definition and to the differences between cognitive and behavioural radicalisation. Such differentiation is necessary for a thorough understanding of the topic. The second chapter gives a clear and concise overview of the different models and theories of radicalisation, contributing to a quick introduction to the different root causes and risk factors of radicalisation. The third chapter consists of a review and analysis of the available literature on the risk factors of radicalisation while the fourth and final chapter consists of an analysis of said factors in light of the French case, ultimately aiming to understand which root causes and risk factors are of high relevance in the case of France. All in all, this thesis sheds...

Kohout, Stanislav ; Charvát, Jan (advisor) ; Mlejnek, Josef (referee)
This diploma thesis analyzes some of the most successful movements in the Czech Republic - ANO and Svoboda a přímá demokracie Tomio Okamury through the content analysis and the theory of populism by Cas Mudd. The aim of the thesis is to determine to what extent both movements are populist in view of the theory mentioned above and how their populism is different. The thesis is divided into two main parts. The first one - the theoretical part is devoted to the concept of populism. In this part three most distinctive streams of populism research are presented: 1) populism as a political (communication) style 2) populism as a strategy and 3) populism as an ideology. The second one - the analytical part includes a methodology in which the criteria for determining what populism is by using the populist core features defined by Francisco Panniza and Cas Mudd are defined. Subsequently, I analyze the content analysis of programming and media representation involving the Facebook social network of both political entities. The results of the analysis are that ANO and SPD - Tomio Okamury fulfill the criteria of all three core features in their media presentations and therefore can be described as populist. There are all three core features appearing in the programs of both movements, what is more SPD is more...
