The diploma thesis called Labour Party during the Premiership of Margaret Thatcher (1979- 1990) focuses on the causes of the defeats of the Labour Party in 1979, 1983 and 1987. For this purpose it examines the relations of the individual party factions. Attention is also paid to opinion polls, especially party preferences. Last but not least, it is taken into account how the Labor Party turned towards centrism and rejected the more radical left-wing policy it had enforced in its first opposition period.

Understanding of the concept 'Corporate Social Responsibility' - universal vs. regional level in South America
Pavlovičová, Natália ; Parízek, Michal (advisor) ; Soukup, Jaromír (referee)
This master thesis elaborates on the question whether there is a difference in the understanding of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) on the universal level and on the regional level in South America. It is built upon the dichotomy of the recent movement in the CSR field that seeks to answer both emerging transnational challenges in a coordinated way while delivering a significant impact on the local level. The analysis is performed using the method of content analysis. Two major aspects of CSR are analyzed - the way the nature of CSR is defined and the prominence of the issues that CSR should address. Based on the results of the content analysis, we identify major trends in the understanding of CSR on both levels and determine the scope of the difference between them. Regarding the differences, we find one common denominator that is dominant on both levels - institutions and governance. In other categories we observe a high variability of the prominence across analysed levels. The important trends revealed in the thesis is a high penetration of South America with foreign CSR institutions and a significant impact of a membership in a global CSR organization on how CSR is communicated by a member organization on the regional level.
Transformation of the British-American "Special Relationship". Since the Government of John Major until Theresa May
Kochová, Nicole ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Plechanovová, Běla (referee)
The aim of the master thesis is to deal with the specific bond between the USA and the Great Britain - by Winston Churchill defined as a special relationship - which connects the both countries based on their common history, language and culture or on their common threat. The special bond then further leads and helps to close cooperation and support in between the USA and the Great Britain. The era the thesis is concerned with begins at the very end of the Cold War when the common enemy was defeated and it was claimed that the special relationship is supposed to vanish as well. It then ends with the term of David Cameron who was later succeeded by Theresa May. The work further focuses on the three significant British premiers - John Major, Tony Blair and David Cameron and the description of their attitude to the relationship with European Union and more importantly to the USA, as the references about the special relationship appear further in their speeches. The subject of my analysis are the speeches of individual statesmen and the fact how exactly they perceive the Great Britain in the international system. Whether the Great Britain should accept its role in the European Union or rather deepen its bond with the USA on the contrary.

Kotrman, Václav ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Barteček, Ivo (referee) ; Opatrný, Josef (referee)
1 Abstract A Group of revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro has been struggling to overthrow the Cuban President Fulgencio Batista since the half of 1950s. After they succeeded on New Year's Eve 1959 the Revolutionary Cuban Government changed strategy in all aspects of the state administration. One of the most visible change happened in the sector of foreign policy. Cuba began to act not only as a sovereign country in relation to the neighbouring states which led to the conflict with the United States, but also began to actively export her model of revolution. The main initiators in this turn were Ernesto "Che" Guevara and Fidel Castro. The first region where Havana attempted to export the revolution was Latin America. Nevertheless, all attempts failed during 1960s. At the same time, the process of decolonisation in Africa visited by Guevara in the middle of 1959 was in progress. In Egypt, he established his first contacts with revolutionary leaders and subsequently informed Havana about the situation. The socialist character of a number of revolutionary movements was close to Cubans, so they started to widen relationship with them. First aid to Africa was sent by Cuban government at the end of 1961 to Algeria which fought for independence on France since 1954. Strengthening of relations between Havana and...

British Women in the War: On the "Home Front". A Contribution to the Study of British Society during World War II.
Rolfová, Jana ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Kovář, Martin (referee)
(english) The thesis deals with the influence of the Second World War on the fate of women in Great Britain. Before the Second World War, the woman was expected to either be a domestic woman or to work in jobs exclusively for the female population. The war, however, changed the rules according to which the society was still managed. When men were called into combat, it caused a nationwide shortage of labor. Women were invited to take their places, and they included many positions that were previously considered inappropriate for them. The aim of this diploma thesis was to find out how far women and society were affected by this situation, which was brought by the war. In my thesis I analyzed the role of British women in the civilian sector on the so-called Home Front. In the first chapter I analyzed the process that led to the forced conscription of women and the problems that accompanied the process. The following chapter deals with the employment of women in industry, which proved to be the most problematic in relation to men and domestic duties of women. The third chapter deals with civilian defense and, above all, services that function within this institution. The penultimate chapter deals with the Women's Voluntary Service, which was created to support civilian defense and to provide services...

Changing perception of peace in post-war Japan
Nguyen, Dieu Thuy ; Kolmaš, Michal (advisor) ; Soukup, Jaromír (referee)
The thesis aims to illustrate the changing perception of peace in Japan. The development of Japan after the World War II has been an interesting object of study in the field of international relations. The main theme of Japan's foreign and security policy during the postwar period has been its pacifist identity. However, it is possible to observe changing attitude of Japanese towards peace and pacifist identity. What aspects contribute to changing identity of a state? What caused the changing perception of peace in Japan? The work examines approaches of conventional constructivism and poststructuralism. It will be shown, that these approaches are not able to sufficiently explain the identity formation. Therefore, thesis introduces theory of sedimentation of identity layers, which combines aforementioned approaches and adds another feature - the operation of identity entrepreneurs. It will be shown that these actors play a significant role in the changing perception of peace in Japan. Keywords Japan, pacifism, peace, identity
