How Language Possess Mind - Quantitative Content Analysis of the Rhetoric of ANO, SPD and IvČRN Political Movements in Relation to Totalitarian Language of the Third Reich
Ligas, Aleš ; Franěk, Jakub (advisor) ; Perottino, Michel (referee)
This thesis deals with the influence of the European Migration Crisis in 2015 on the number of uses of selected features of totalitarian language in the rhetoric of ANO movement chairman Andrej Babiš, SPD chairman Tomia Okamura and IvČRN initiative leader Martin Konvička. This work aims to use new quantitative methods to examine over time the frequency and structure of the characters used in totalitarian language based on the concept of politics of eternity of the American historian Timothy Snyder. The occurrence of signs of totalitarian language was monitored on the social network Facebook in the period 2013-2017. The results of the analysis show an increase in the use of features of the totalitarian language with the onset of the migration crisis. In the end, a comparison of the monitored political actors and a contextual interpretation of the findings is given.
Yes, Let's Move Forward! Can be political movements of Andrej Babiš and Emmanuel Macron classified as the personal parties?
Elbel, Ondřej ; Perottino, Michel (advisor) ; Stauber, Jakub (referee)
The organization of political parties underwent significant changes in the last decades. New emerging parties and movements cannot be easily classified within traditional ideal types (e.g., mass party, catch-all party). One of the factors that contribute to the change of party organization is a personalization of politics. Firstly, I want to analyze in this paper the evolution of the role of leader in the core of political organization. In the course of time, I will cover the development from 1950's to the situation in the 2010's. One of the current models that aim to interpret the organization of parties is known as personal party developed by Mauro Calise. Reflecting the trend of personalization of politics he explored the impact of personalized leader on the entire organization of his/her political party. In this thesis, I want to follow up with Calise's argumentation and I will aim to apply his theory on two new cases. In the comparative study, I will focus on the French movement La République En Marche founded by Emmanuel Macron and the Czech movement ANO founded by Andrej Babiš. In spite of evident ideological discrepancies between both movements, there can be interesting parallels while studying the internal organization of these two. After the detailed comparison, a personal party model...
The end of liberal democracy in the Czech Republic?
Rathous, David ; Perottino, Michel (advisor) ; Franěk, Jakub (referee)
This thesis discusses the state of democracy in the Czech Republic. As its name suggests, the aim is to answer the question of whether the end of liberal democracy is coming. According to the authors hypothesis, The Czech Republic had experienced a significant shift in political development, and it had in recent years turned away from the liberal democratic order. In the first part of this thesis, the author introduces the concept of liberal democracy from a theoretical point of view, including its development, with emphasis on the problematic genesis. It also covers concepts such as defective or illiberal democracies. Based on this, the author then formulates the criteria of liberal democracy. The second part of the thesis describes the political development of the Czech Republic with emphasis on the period after 1989 while observing the fulfilment of the criteria described by the Author. Regarding the research question, the author also formulates the thought whether the past in the Czech Republic liberal democracy was established or not and submits its claim for this argument. It is therefore a case study with the methodological design of qualitative analysis. This work was created in response to a very chaotic debate in the public space, which involved arguments from various politicians and...
Causes of the current crisis of the Parti socialiste
Pavlíková, Klára ; Perottino, Michel (advisor) ; Brunclík, Miloš (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on causes of the contemporary crisis within the French Parti socialiste. The PS, as the hegemonic party of the French left until the last presidential and legislative elections in 2017, formed one of the foundational pillars of today's French Fifth Republic. After these elections, however, the party found itself in an unprecedented crisis. The debacle was also felt by other traditional parties of the French right-left continuum. It is clear that such a great crisis could not be solely caused by the unsuccessful presidential candidate Benoît Hamon. The research question of this qualitative study is therefore: How deeply rooted in the history of the Socialist Party are the causes of this contemporary crisis? Are the causes of the contemporary crisis of a long-term nature, which can be seen already in the 20th century? Or is the current state of the party conditioned by causes that arose only in the 21st century? The thesis captures and then analyzes the external and internal factors (both, in the 20th and 21st centuries) that could possibly cause this contemporary situation.
Representation of women in the French parliamentary elections in 2012 and 2017
Součková, Alžběta ; Perottino, Michel (advisor) ; Kubátová, Hana (referee)
This bachelor's thesis deals with a comparative analysis of the elections to the French National Assembly in 2012 and 2017 in terms of the representation of women among candidates and among elected deputies. The representation of women in the National Assembly is presented in the historical context of women in the political space from the French Revolution, through the gain of women's suffrage after World War II, to the Parity Act in 2000, which introduces legal quotas for women's representation in political institutions and functions. The thesis deals with factors that affects women's entry into politics and their number, such as the French Fifth Republic's electoral system in elections to the National Assembly or setting quotas for women's representation, as well as indicators that determine the real power and importance of women in politics. The comparison of the legislative elections in 2012, when the Socialist Party won, and the legislative elections in 2017, when the new political group En Marche won the majority, deals mainly with different approches of political parties to the law of parity and gender equality and then also with differences in filling key positions in the National Assembly. The conclusion of the thesis presents the results of the analysis, which will either confirm or...
The Entry of New Political Parties into the Chamber of Deputies in 2017
Trojan, Jan ; Šárovec, Daniel (advisor) ; Perottino, Michel (referee)
Czech Parliamentary Elections in 2017 led into surprising results, according to which the largest number of political entities have historically taken a seat in the lower house of the parliament. It was even the first experience on the national political scene for a third of them. Despite the fact that these entities succeeded in these elections for the first time, some of their members already were part of the Chamber of Deputies before, and thus have experience with the functioning of the lower house from the last election period. It mainly applies to Mayors and Independents (STAN) and Freedom and Direct Democracy - Tomio Okamura (SPD). The third examined entity is Czech Pirate Party (Piráti), which also tried to join the lower house in previous elections. Such a wide fragmentation of political parties is not a common phenomenon in the Chamber of Deputies and it represents a challenge for a closer research. The outcome of this thesis will be to analyse how similar or different are these political entities and which factors were possibly essential for their electoral success.

Comparison of ANO 2011 and Fidesz in terms of program and organizational structure
Winklerová, Barbora ; Mlejnek, Josef (advisor) ; Perottino, Michel (referee)
This diploma thesis focuses on comparison of ANO 2011 and Fidesz based on their origin, development, organizational structure, program and ideology, and role of the party leader. Beside the introduction of various organizational party types and concept of "genetical code" by Angelo Panebianco, the parties are examined also by concept of populism defined on the basis of the book by Cas Mudde and C.R. Kaltwasser. Based on two case studies of ANO 2011 and Fidesz the goal of this paper was to find out similar and different features and explore their impact on democratic system. As long as these two parties have different organizational structure, one of the important features is dominant role of their founder not only in the foundation of the party but also in the following development towards centralized organization and personalization. The other common feature is populism which appears to be an important variable affecting the party's influence on the democratic system. However, the character of populism is different in these cases. Particular political system and electoral system also play important role in the potential decline of democracy.
