Philosophy and urban public space
Kratochvíl, Petr
The essay develops the idea of urban public space from the paradigmatic situation of dialogues that Socrates conducted on the agora with his fellow citizens about common affairs of “polis”. This opportunity to confront own experiences with those of other people represents the deeper social sense of the public spaces and should be protected against restrictions connected with privatisation, and commodification of urban public space. The essay refers to theories of H. Arendt, J. Habermas and R. Sennett.

Kutišová, Zuzana ; Kratochvíl, Petr (advisor) ; Rolenc, Jan Martin (referee)
The thesis contributes to explaining the perception of otherness in Europe by conducting the analysis of the media discourse before The United Kingdom European Union membership referendum in 2016. The aim of this thesis is to identify the key concepts used in the media discourse to construct the internal and external otherness in Europe and to reflect the consequences of this practice. The thesis is based on the theory of critical geopolitics which helps us to understand how the social construction of territory and identity works. The result of this thesis is to answer the following question: how was the otherness in Europe described by the British press during the days before the referendum and how was the result affected by this description?
Global terrorism from the constructivist perspective: Human mind as a security factor
Fajmonová, Veronika ; Lehmannová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Kratochvíl, Petr (referee) ; Chytilek, Roman (referee)
The aim of this dissertation is to examine the process of securitization of terrorism, to develop the role of the audience (public) at the individual level and subsequently to provide recommendations on an alternative way of fighting terrorism. In order to achieve this goal, the author uses socially constructivist securitization theory, critical terrorism studies and political psychology, namely cognitive and social psychology. Throughout the chapters, the securitization process of terrorism is explored; terrorism as a (to a certain extent) objective problem, further, from the point of view of critical terrorism studies, the security measures are assessed and public opinion is examined through public opinion polls. The author comes to the conclusion that public opinion is one of the key factors in implementing extensive security measures. Therefore, she further examines the factors that affect public opinion; the narrative, the role of the media, and ultimately the psychological processes influencing the perception of reality. It turns out that the narrative about terrorism and the media have their share in the public reaction to terrorism, but the role of the audience in the securitization process of terrorism is not fully explained and there are the psychological processes that illuminate it. Therefore, by running an experiment, the author examines the effect of three narratives about terrorism, based on psychological theories. It concludes that there is a potential for reducing the public's fears and thus the alternative fight against terrorism.
Cultural and religious identities as concepts in the IR discipline. The case of European identity in interactions of the EU and the Roman Catholic Church
Doležal, Tomáš ; Lehmannová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Veselý, Zdeněk (referee) ; Kratochvíl, Petr (referee) ; Černý, Karel (referee)
The text deals with the relation between religion and politics, in particular, with the conceptualization of religious identity in the discipline of International Relations from the position of postmodern approaches. The main goal is to examine whether and how feasible, useful, and usual is to work with the religious (and inseparable cultural) dimension of identity. The author claims that the concept of religious identity well reveals an important link between the religious and the political and represents a useful analytical tool. A categorisation and a model of identity are introduced and applied. The application is twofold, the categories are used in the academic discourse analysis and then once again it is used for the case of European identity in interactions of the EU and the RCC. Finally, the concept of the religious actor is discussed on this empirical basis and also the political construction of the religious, in general, is debated.

The given dissertation presents the work of the Country Research and Planning Institute in Brno and depicts regional tendencies in the Czech urbanism in the 40's. In her paper the author focuses on the period between 1938 and 1948 that marks the active existence of Brno's institute which was the most progressive institution within the field of regional planning in that era and whose activities have never been described sufficiently. The main initiators and authors of the institute concept were Bohuslav Fuchs, Jindřich Kumpošt and Josef Mrkos; later a significant figure of the Czech regional planning - Emanuel Hruška joined them.

After introducing the regional planning in the world and Czechoslovakia at the beginning of the 40's the history, concept and functioning of Brno's institute is presented, including analyses of its main projects.

Migration governance. External migration policy of the European Union in flux
Gahurová, Jaroslava ; Barša, Pavel (advisor) ; Kratochvíl, Petr (referee) ; Koutek, Ondřej (referee)
This paper studies the dynamics of the EU external migration policy by applying the external governance theory on the Global approach to migration (GAM) while exploring the nature of migration relations between the Union and the third countries. The Global approach to migration is based on the integration of migration issues (based on four thematic dimensions) in the EU external relations and on strengthening cooperation and dialogue with partner countries. The aim of the thesis is to clarify by the theory of external governance the relations between the EU and partner countries with which the EU cooperates in the management of migration flows. More specifically, the thesis focuses on mutual relations, which are reflected in cooperation on migration issues and answers the question whether GAM raised a qualitative change in relations between the EU and partner countries. Further, the text aspires on the reflection of the international role of the EU in its external relations of migration. The thesis identifies 10 major platforms of cooperation between the EU and third countries: (1) The European Neighbourhood Policy, (2) The Euro-African Process on Migration and Development, (3) The EU-Africa Partnership on Migration, Mobility and Employment, (4) The Union for Mediterranean, (5) Dialogue on...
Czech Architect during the Political Changes after 1989
Ševčíková, Lucie ; Lahoda, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Kratochvíl, Petr (referee)
In this thesis, the author wants to deal with the broad spectrum of the contemporary Czech architecture. However, the phrase "Czech architect" appears in the title to show that this thesis is not a critical analysis of the stylish development of Czech architecture, but rather a search for links and inspirations that define the modern architectural profession in Czech society. These links and connections are deeply rooted in architects' experiences before and after the political regime change. The author feels that the architects' understanding of today's society and political transformation will help clarify some uncertainties of their meaning and status. One can understand the modern architects and the course of the Czech chamber of architecture as well as the public sector with it's ever changing tendencies ever since 1989 if the broad spectrum of contemporary architecture is kept in perspective.
