Vorlová, Kateřina ; Říchová, Blanka (advisor) ; Mrklas, Ladislav (referee)
The Bachelor's thesis "Democrats 66 at the Dutch Political Scene" considers the political life in the Netherlands during the second half of the 20th century. The political party Democrats '66 was established in October 1966 with the view of reform the Dutch political system and democratize the Dutch society. It experienced several intraparty crises, after one of which (in 1985) the party renamed Democrats 66. It designates itself as the left-of-centre, progressive liberal party. The Bachelor's thesis is divided into two parts. The first part focuses on the party establishment and its internal development up to the present day. It examines in detail two main party requirements - a direct election of the Prime Minister and a change of the Second Chamber electoral system. Further, it contains an analysis of party election programs, its election results to the Second Chamber and a development of the party membership. The point is to ascertain a reason for the party establishment and partly its maintenance at the Dutch political scene. The second part deals with the party participation on government coalitions and especially with its formation and functioning of those governments. The particular attention is given to the representation of Democrats '66 (Democrats 66, respectively) and its policy in those...

Consociationalism as a Possible Solution of Conflicts in Segmented Societies: The Case of Lebanon and Northern Ireland
Klevarová, Kateřina ; Ditrych, Ondřej (advisor) ; Mrklas, Ladislav (referee)
The Master's thesis "Consociationalism as a Possible Solution of Conflicts in Segmented Societies: The Case of Lebanon and Northern Ireland" deals with suitability of consociational model in fragmented societies. By means of the comparative studies of Lebanon and Northern Ireland the author considered possibility to apply the system in countries or regions, which experienced long lasting internal conflict or civil war. The conclusion of the essay is that consociational model is a possible solution of conflicts in segmented societies. However the analysis of the peace process in both cases revealed the importance of external factors, which can contribute to the final implementation of the model. The link between collective identities and interests revealed the requirement of sufficient motivation for elite to engage in power sharing and to take the tough decisions conducive to inter-ethnic political accommodation. This pressure should come in the form of coercive external forces. However, it is necessary to consider the dynamics of the system, which is rigid and it will need certain modifications in the future.

Berger, Vojtěch ; Mrklas, Ladislav (advisor) ; Jeřábek, Martin (referee)
This thesis aims to describe the consolidation process of democracy in West Germany by the example of the political parties.

The main focus is put on the parties' role in the current German society and on the parties' influence on the democracy-durability in Germany. Special attention is paid to two aspects - financing of the parties and political education. The final part of the thesis summarizes arguments, which confirm the positive tribute of the parties to the German democracy. Powered by TCPDF (
