The Role of Monarchy in the Process of Transformation in Spain
Hloch, David ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Pešta, Mikuláš (referee)
(in English): The text attempts to evaluate the role and influence of representatives of the Spanish monarchy - Juan Carlos I and his father Juan de Borbón - during the transformation of the political regime in 1975-1982. In terms of political influence, the author concludes that Juan Carlos was one of the key figures in the democratization of Spain through his political activities, while Juan de Borbón, who had to deal with the disadvantageous and marginalized role of foreign opposition, had only minimal influence on the transformation of Spain. From a social point of view, Juan Carlos, despite being put into the role by the previous regime, was able to successfully live up to the role of unifying the long-term divided Spanish society. Even though it can be attributed to the exceptionally successful (re)establishment of the monarchy and the personal abilities of Juan Carlos, the author notes the importance of the fact that the monarchy did not take part in the civil war and did not try to build on the previous regime which could have easily caused conflicts with the public. According to the author, the monarchy's careful and active engagement to prove its purpose and aim to the public, significantly helped Spain's successful and peaceful transition to democracy.

Chábová, Tereza ; Aslan, Emil (advisor) ; Soukup, Jaromír (referee)
This Master's thesis deals with the individual's motivations for participation in the Communist insurgency during the Greek Civil War of 1946-1949.

The Master's thesis introduces several theoretical concepts which try to explain individual's motivations for mobilization in insurgency generally, including the "grievance versus greed" theory, the social networks and collective identity approach as well as coercion approach. The theories are then applied to the empirical case of Greek-speaking Pontic refugees from Anatolia and their participation in the Greek Civil War. The thesis introduces the background and experiences of the researched ethnic group throughout the interwar period up until the Greek Civil War. The analysis of the particular incentives which were behind the Greek refugee's participation is supported by the qualitative research in the form of interviews with 21 witnesses, who fall into the researched group of families who originate from the Pontos region in Anatolia and have family experience of mobilization in Communist Insurgency of 1946 to 1949.
