Between Power and Perception: Analyzing China's Influence in International Relations
Karásková, Ivana ; Kučerová, Irah (advisor) ; Stuchlíková, Zuzana (referee) ; Harnisch, Sebastian (referee)
The doctoral thesis focuses on the People's Republic of China's influence in international relations. It follows two main research objectives, a theoretical and an empirical one. The first goal is to more firmly establish the concept of influence and distinguish it from power, the second is to analyze China's influence in the Czech Republic before, during and after the 'restart' of Czech-China relations in 2012. The thesis rests on the idea of a conceptual 'filter' through which power (conceptualized as ability) passes on its way to becoming influence. As a result, the effects of policies implemented by an actor who aims to exert a power on another actor are co-dependent not only on its power, but also the perception of the actor which is being influenced. The thesis claims that in case of a significant distance (defined geographically or otherwise) between 'the sender' and 'the receiver', perception matters more as it has greater ability to amplify or decrease the effects of the sender's power - i.e. the influence. The latter objective aims at explaining the methods the People's Republic of China uses to impose its interests on others and the receivers' reactions to such efforts. The thesis uses a case study of the Czech Republic as a country where China's influence is just getting established and...

Population Ageing in China
Pawliková, Barbora ; Stuchlíková, Zuzana (advisor) ; Bejkovský, Jan (referee)
The fear of uncontrollable population growth in the second half of the 20th century made the Chinese government introduce a birth control policy. The sharp decline of the fertility rate below the replacement rate and the extension of life expectancy translate now to unusually fast population ageing. The purpose of this thesis is to explain the causes that lead to ageing of the current Chinese population and its impacts on the economy and to demonstrate possible practises that could be used to cope with the consequences of the population ageing in the People´s Republic of China. The first chapter concerns itself with the demography of population in general, characterizes indicators that are used to describe population development and subsequently defines population policy and describes its different types. Part of the chapter is dedicated to the population policy in China in the second half of the 20th century. The second chapter describes the current state of Chinese population and explains the problems that result from population ageing (e.g. labour force decline and wage increase that relates to it, disappearing demographic dividend or lack of social services facilities). The third chapter focuses on the practises which the Chinese government uses to react to population ageing. The newly established two-child policy and the effects which it could bring in relation to ageing are emphasized. The chapter also includes recommendations as to on which actions should the government focus so that the ageing does not pose a threat to the country and its development.
