The implication of Swiss neutrality during the Second World War (international political aspect)
Jandová, Zuzana ; Veselý, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Matějka, Zdeněk (referee)
The thesis analyses the importance and benefits of Swiss neutrality during the Second World War, both for Switzerland itself, and for the two fighting parties. During the war, country was surrounded by territory that fell under German influence, so Switzerland was forced to cooperate extensively with the Third Reich. Not only this situation but also dependence on foreign trade forced the country to deal mainly with its northern neighbour. Its role as a neutral intermediary was not used, as the Allies refused to enter into any kind of peace with Germany. The thesis also deals with the question whether Switzerland preserved its neutrality at all, why was it spared Hitler's conquests and what is the view of its neutrality on moral grounds.

The Yom Kippur War and the mediation of the USA in this conflict
Kopečná, Pavlína ; Havlová, Radka (advisor) ; Matějka, Zdeněk (referee)
The object of this work is an analysis of the Arabic-Israeli conflict known as the Yom Kippur war and the mediative involement of the USA in this conflict. The name of the war is based on the Yom Kippur festival which was held just on that day when the surprising attack against Israel started. From the theoretical point of view the work will explain the terms of mediation and war in connection to a settlement of conflict. Using this theoretical stem I will try to analyse the war mentioned above and the mediation role of the USA. The main question I want to answer is whether the USA took this part in the Yom Kippur war just because of the oil embargo imposed on all allies of Israel by the Arabic member states of the OPEC organization in 1973 or not. The result of the analysis will be presented in the conclusion of this work.
