Indian Partition - life histories in the context of geopolitical developments
Mubeenová, Geti ; Novotný, Josef (advisor) ; Hons, Pavel (referee)
The following thesis focuses on the long-term consequences of Partition of India on a micro- level. The thesis examines the life-history of a family that has been spatially divided owing to the decision of some family members who decided to migrate from India to Pakistan. Current, and past familial relations as well as the relationship of the spatially displaced family, specifically focusing on the relationship of the Indo-Pakistani family parts have been analysed. The life history is understood as a possible way how to explain Partition. Partition is presented in its broader historical-geographical context, specifically, the decolonization of the Indian subcontinent. The thesis incorporates selected approaches that establish a multi-dimensional framework and its interactions. The critical geopolitical approach explains the political standpoints of former political leaders as well as preconditions of Partition. The New histories approach gives way to personal spoken historical testimonies of family members in both countries, that apply nationalised representations of Partition and family ties. Additionally, feminist perspectives insight into how all three generations of the family understand and perceive topics important to the family's history, including how do they define "home ".

India-Sri Lanka Conflicts in the Palk Strait
Benová, Adriana ; Hons, Pavel (advisor) ; Blecha, Vlastimil (referee)
(in English): This bachelor thesis deals with the disputes between India and Sri Lanka due to the unclear determination of international maritime borders already under British domination. As a result, the fishermen of both countries still enter illegally into the adjacent waters for fishing. The situation complicates not only the struggle for the uninhabited island of Katchchateevu, which has been a controversy for almost a century, but also the entry of a third non-state actor, represented by a terrorist (originally rebellious) organization of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), which stirred up problems in the civil war in Sri Lanka. This terrorist organization threatened the security of the area and, as a result, the region was stagnating economically due to a lack of foreign investment. The work aimed to analyze the issues, find the roots of these disputes, present the proposals and measures that have been taken over the years to solve the situation, and finally to mention some solutions for the situation in which the two countries are located.
