Change of the German nuclear energy policy after the accident of nuclear power station in Fukushima
Svobodová, Tereza ; Nigrin, Tomáš (advisor) ; Mynaříková, Romana (referee)
Germany decided in summer 2011 to stop using the atom as a source of energy. Politicians responded this way because of resistance of the society to the nuclear power. This opposition grew after the accident in Japanese power station Fukushima in March 2011. This thesis deals with German nuclear power policy and the anti-nuclear movement. It will trace it from its beginning in 1998, when the Green party was for the first time in government and the first nuclear power phase-out was decided, until the year 2012. The moves of mostly political participants are analysed in connection to Fukushima accident. The aim of this analyse is to describe the changes in German energy policy and to find reasons for the decision to give up nuclear power. The paper comes to conclusion that the reason for the amendment of nuclear act and thereby gradual disconnection of all nuclear power stations was not only because of the demand by the public, but also the pressure of the opposition on the government. The government tried to keep their voters, alternatively the bigger coalition partner CDU/CSU wanted to open another coalition possibility with one of the oppositional parties. Germany will have to build in following years not only new power stations, but also intelligent nets as well. If the Germans want to keep their goals...
Shifts in the CDU/CSU's Nuclear Energy Policy: A Path to the "Fukushima Reversal"
Landa, Martin ; Mynaříková, Romana (advisor) ; Nigrin, Tomáš (referee)
The Fukushima disaster sparked another series in the continuous German debate over the future of nuclear power and led to a major shift in the country's energy industry. The 2011 decision to abandon nuclear power nevertheless followed only a few months after the announced power plants' operation-extension. The aim of this paper is to examine, whether the CDU/CSU's post-Fukushima gradation reflects any constant developments in the party's policies. The author is looking at how nuclear policy of the Christian parties has been developing since the early stages of technological research in the 1950's until the Fukushima accident in March 2011. The paper outlines the shifts in the party's policy in the general context of German energy industry. This thesis provides an overview of CDU/CSU's approach towards the use of nuclear power and contributes to the understanding of the long- term tendencies behind the "Fukushima reversal."
Implementation of Nord Stream construction - Stabilizing factor of German's Power Industry Sonderweg?
Kushnir, Leonid ; Mynaříková, Romana (advisor) ; Mlsna, Petr (referee)
The continuously decreasing amount of mineral resources and its future is becoming an omnipresent topic in the EU. The key is to obtain good terms of resource import. Agreement signed by the Russian president Vladimir Putin and the German chancellor Gerhard Schröder considering the construction of the Nordstream gas pipeline, leading from Russian Wyborg to German Greifswald, shattered the EU's concept of energetic policy meaning the EU energetic security. Even though the energetic concept puts emphasis on diminishing the reliance on Russian gas import into EU, Germany took its own direction. In these times when the demand for gas import is steadily increasing, every country is trying to have good relations with Russia and secure themselves a stable supply of gas. Germany, thanks to its successful long-term cooperation with Russia, is able to avoid a possible future gas crisis that might be caused by the transit countries. The gas pipeline's direct connection to the Russian gas reserves ensured the coverage of Germany's demand but in the time of need (crisis) even help out neighbouring countries inside the EU. Not only is the European energetic concept going through series of changes, but even the Russian side must react to the increasing gas demand. The extensive researches, searching for new gas...

Báčová, Tereza ; Nigrin, Tomáš (advisor) ; Mynaříková, Romana (referee)
The conflicted question of German political capital has been discussed on numerous times. Its most dramatic time came when it got bound by the ideological and territorial turmoils during the Cold War era of the 20th century. Nevertheless, it was the end of iron-separated country and its reunification in 1990 which reignited the topic and forced Germany to make this essential decision about its metropolis and soon to be the seat of the government for good. Presented thesis "Die deutsche Hauptstadtfrage Bonn versus Berlin; Der Beschluss über den Regierungs- und Parlamentssitz des vereinten Deutschlands" deals with this German inner political debate about the political capital in its so far the last stage, where two candidates Bonn and Berlin had a run for it. The perspective of gradual evolution of the debate from its beginning in year 1989 is used to clarify the final decision and a vote to make Berlin the capital city as well as the seat of the united government and the parliament. Thesis concludes, that there was a number of crucial factors which played their part even prior to the vote for Berlin (Unification Agreement, political power of some prominent politicians, compromise bill of the Berlin Party etc.) as well as it was the very strong rhetorical, argumentative and emotional power shown by Berlin's...
Fiscal Equalization in Germany.
Mynaříková, Romana ; Pešek, Jiří (advisor) ; Mlsna, Petr (referee)
The thesis "Financial Equalization of German Federal States - a Key German Domestic Political Issue of the Turn of the Millennium" describes one of the most important elements of the German financial system, which has been in place since 1950s. It has its constitutional justification in the principle that citizens cannot be treated differently by the government simply because they live in different parts of the federation (article 107 of the German Constitution). The fiscal equalization exists in the form of redistribution of tax revenue (individual and corporate income tax and turnover tax) primarily according to the size of the population in each German state (Bundesland). It takes place vertically between the federation and individual states and simultaneously horizontally among states themselves. The "Länderfinanzausgleich", interstate horizontal fiscal equalization among the Länder, is certainly the main factor of interregional solidarity in Germany. Without central government's intervention, it organizes the horizontal redistribution of fiscal revenues among the Länder, including the five new Länder since 1995. The operating mechanisms are quite complex. Since the amount of money, which the rich states have to pass on to the poorer states, is enormous, the financial equalization became one of...
