Explaining the Czech Foreign Policy Towards China (1992-2017)
Adamková, Petra ; Garlick, Jeremy Alan (advisor) ; Havlová, Radka (referee)
The presented master´s thesis aims to explain the Czech foreign policy towards China since 1992 to the year 2017. In order to analyse the approach, the author firstly carries out a literature review and introduces three levels of foreign policy analysis, i.e. system, (sub)state and individual. Key relevant phenomena are introduced and the stage is set for the case study. The empirical part of the presented thesis begins with a summary of the foreign policy of the Czech Republic towards the People´s Republic of China. To provide a complex picture, the Chinese interests in Czechia are described as well. The last chapter represents the analysis itself. The notion of polarity and great powers in the system level, the national attributes with domestic influences, and the personalities of two presidents provide the basic aspects contributing to the final explanation.
Shifts in Polarity in the Post-war Global System - Attempted European Re-colonisation in Asia
Huntley, Matthew David ; Garlick, Jeremy Alan (advisor) ; Havlová, Radka (referee)
France and Britains failure in their attempt to re-colonise parts of South-East Asia after the Second World War came out of miscalculations made by their governments and their state institutions. The international system did not transition immediately after the war from multi-polarity to bipolarity. A window of opportunity was available for the two countries to regain influence in the region. The external political environment in the region was not unfavourable to a return of European colonial powers and there were no immediate viable challengers. Foreign policy misjudgements, weak domestic political systems and changes in priorities all contributed to the decline in influence of these two European colonial powers in South-East Asia. This thesis applies realist principles in combination with aspects of constructivism, while observing system and unit levels, to ascertain the root causes of the decline of British and French influence in the region.

Development of the international political and economical situation in Iran during the sanction regime
Horáková, Barbora ; Havlová, Radka (advisor) ; Dubský, Zbyněk (referee)
This diploma thesis analyzes the impact of sanctions imposed on Iran by the international community due to unclear issues in the Iranian nuclear program. The aim of the paper is to find out whether the economic situation in Iran has changed due to the sanctions and whether the sanctions have had an impact on its international political position.The analysis of four macroeconomic indicators, which together form the so-called magical quadrangle, will serve to determine the development of the economy. These indicators include the development of the GDP, the inflation, the unemployment and the balance of payments. Given the dependency of the country on oil exports, the development of oil production in the period of sanctions is also being monitored.The results of the analysis show that the economic situation in Iran deteriorated over the duration of the sanctions, especially in 2012 when the European Union stopped buying Iranian oil. The second part is devoted to exploring Iran's relations with the United States, Russia and the European Union.The analysis shows that the relationship between Iran and the United States is more than by sanctions influenced by the fact that Iran is diverting from the civilian nuclear program. On the contrary, Russia maintains allied ties with Iran, which are, however, to some extent limited.This is evidenced by the fact that Russia has approved all the UN sanctions against Iran. The European Union played an important role during the negotiation processbeing the very first to start negotiating with Iran about its nuclear program. For the Union, this was also an important test of the functionality of the Common Foreign and Security Policy Institute.

The thesis deals with development cooperation in post-conflict reconstruction. The comparative case study analyzes the specific involvement of the international community in the post-war reconstruction of Rwanda and Burundi with emphasis on two main areas, political/constitutional, and socio-economic. Based on the findings of the analysis, possible measures are suggested to make development cooperation in post-conflict reconstruction more effective, especially in the case of Burundi. The results of the analysis show that the international community should in case of these two countries, among other things, mostly focus on securing political stability, supporting civil society, or building infrastructure, and thus help to achieve the goals of post-conflict reconstruction.
