Rolenc, Jan Martin ; Eichler, Jan (advisor) ; Zemanová, Štěpánka (referee) ; Krč, Miroslav (referee) ; Kraftová, Ivana (referee)
The aim of the thesis is to examine the aspects and benefits of neutrality for both Sweden and the international community, to look for the causes of its current changing and problematic situation and to identify the opportunities it still offers. The text therefore answers these research questions: What was the contribution of neutrality to Sweden's security policy in the 20th century? What was the contribution of Swedish neutrality to the international community in the 20th century? What has changed and how that, since the end of the Cold War, Swedish neutrality has been transformed? What opportunities does Swedish security policy offer today? In accordance with the aims and questions, the topic is elaborated as an historical interpretive (and explanatory) and literature-assessing dissertation. Its first part (chapter 1) is a conceptual analysis and a state of the art review of the wider context of the topic. The second part (chapters 2 and 3) is a qualitative single case study. As to theory, the thesis draws from liberalism, constructivism and the Copenhagen School of Security Studies. The changes in (international) security and Swedish security policy and neutrality are interpreted in the context of globalisation processes. The text identifies two notions of security - military and open/liberal, which it links to two dimensions of political neutrality - realistic and idealistic and, by applying them, answers the questions asked. It concludes that the Swedish security policy or neutrality has been and is primarily about finding effective and legitimate alternatives and ways to implement them in a transforming, complex and uncertain world.
Problematic Identification with the EU - analysis of Danish euroscepticism
Hořejšová, Tereza ; Šlosarčík, Ivo (advisor) ; Svobodný, Petr (referee) ; Zemanová, Štěpánka (referee)
The dissertation thesis analyses factors which are characteristic for Danish euroscepticism. It seeks an aswer to a question whether certain national specifics pre-determine "the Danish" version of euroscepticism. In previous research, it has not been very common to analyse national versions of public euroscepticism but the current academic knowledge about euroscepticism is still not satisfactory and in particular does not take into account the tender nuances in demonstration and origins of euroscepticism of each member state. However, as this thesis hypotheses, it is necessary to take the national eurosceptic specifics into account while designing the communication policy on EU issues. The thesis concludes that in the case of Denmark, the national specifics which have been identified as strong perception of national identity, referenda, EU opt-outs, specific political system and a formalised co- ordination system of EU affairs, serve as roots, i.e. not as a consequence, of Danish euroscepticism. Keywords European Union; Denmark; Euroscepticism; opt-outs; identity; public opinion; communication policy.
