Human rights protection and national interest: the case of border fences in the European Union
Ferrario, Ljuba ; Novotná, Markéta (advisor) ; Burešová, Jana (referee)
Ever since the beginning of the refugee crisis, the efficiency of the Common European Asylum System has been questioned by MSs and European institutions. Recently, physical barriers have been built by an increasing number of countries in the European Union for the purpose of border controls. Simultaneously, several human rights organization have expressed their concerns on the violation of the right to asylum and of the prohibition of inhuman and degrading treatment resulting from the adoption of this method. This research will analyze this phenomenon through the perspective of international relations theory. The analysis will consider the realist approach in opposition to the liberal one, trying to assess whether border fences can be defined as an expression of national interest which compromises international cooperation in the field of human rights.

Novotná, Markéta ; Žemlička, Josef (advisor) ; Maur, Eduard (referee) ; Mikulec, Jiří (referee)
Markéta Novotná Abstract - The Feudo-vassal System on Royal Estates in Early Modern Bohemia The study is devoted to the topic of feudo-vassal relations in early modern Bohemia presented on a sample of specific royal and chamber domains at the castle Karlštejn. The first part of the thesis describes how the feudo-vassal tenures were treated in Czech and European historical studies, using impulses from the philosophy and sociology. The others chapters are dedicated to the main object of this analysis - to the Karlštejn vassal system - a group of small-sized estates connected to castle Karlštejn through feudo-vassal bonds. The second chapter of the thesis deals with the problem of historical consciousness, where the castle Karlštejn is imagined as the site of "the national memory", which strongly effected the interpretation of the Karlštejn vassal system. The third (main) part of the thesis presents the factual analysis of the Karlštejn vassal system from the last third of sixteenth century to the turn of the seventies and the eighties of the next century. At the end of the study the analysis of four chosen vassal estates is added. Key words: Karlštejn, historiography, vassals, feudal system, domain, chamber, lower nobility

Novotná, Markéta ; Starý, Jiří (advisor) ; Polách, Vladimír (referee)
The thesis focuses on the reflection of the discovery of America by the Norsemen, and does so in three steps. Firstly, the approach to and the significance of the Norse voyages to America in the medieval materials, and especially in the Vinland sagas, are presented. This part is accompanied by a general introduction into the sagas. Secondly, the situation in the 19th century is introduced. In this period a lot of scientific works as well as works of art aiming at the Norse voyages to the New continent arose. The factors that led to this increased interest are explored, e.g. national movement in Scandinavia. Thirdly, the contemporary reflexion of the Norse discovery of America is analyzed (particularly its influence on works of art, society, politics and scientific research). The methodology used in this thesis is discourse analysis, which points out to the changing reflexion of the given topic.
Representative democracy at the European level
Novotná, Markéta ; Zemánek, Jiří (advisor) ; Svobodová, Magdaléna (referee)
Representative democracy at the European level This thesis deals with representative democracy, as one of the fundamental principles underpinning the organisation of states or, as the case may be, interstate-type entities. At the European level, this principle is embodied by the European Parliament and the national parliaments of the Member States whose functions and competences complement each other. In the context of the role of the European Parliament the fundamental question concerns direct elections as an instrument of political legitimacy. This thesis offers a comparison of the findings of the Czech and the German Constitutional Courts, which took different views on the case of the electoral treshold in elections to the European Parliament. Arguments of these courts enable the reader to see European Union, position of the European Parliament in its institutional structure and its democratic legitimacy in wider context.

Novotná, Markéta ; Sýkora, Jan (advisor) ; Labus, David (referee)
(in English): The aim of this thesis is to define the extent and form of preservation of cultural identity and the form of adaptation in the case of Japanese emigrants and their descendants in the USA. In the first part, the thesis presents general information about culture, ethnicity and cultural identity in the context of globalisation and migration. The second part is focused on the Japanese emigrants. Introduction of their ethnicity and identity in general is followed by chronological description of Japanese immigration to the USA and of the differences in adaptation depending on social, political and economical conditions. Also mentioned are the specific Japanese cultural patterns that had the biggest influence on Japanese American adaptation - group orientation and cultural relativism. Due to the fact that Japanese immigration is not homogenous, I decided to focus on the adaptation process and change of the identity of Japanese Americans in the area of Little Tokyo, Los Angeles and its cultural festival Nisei Week. Keywords (anglicky): Cultural identity, migration, Japanese emigration, Japanese American, Little Tokyo

Annotated translation: The beginning of the Schleswig-Holstein question
Novotná, Markéta ; Žárská, Monika (advisor) ; Veselá, Gabriela (referee)
The purpose of the doctoral thesis written by Joachim Daebel is to describe the Schleswig-Holstein movement and its impact on Germany in particular. This topic in the way how it is conceived in the given thesis is highly interesting from the translators point of view. There are two reasons for this fact. The first one is a rather low concern about it in the Czech area which leads to the uncertainty about how to translate the terminology of history and law which appears in a large amount. The second one is the complicated language used by the author of the thesis. The paper is written with the use of an extremely difficult syntax which emphasizes the differences between Czech and German. The frequency of technical terms and complicated syntax are the main features of the doctoral thesis which cause problems and must be solved by the translator. The aim of this annotated translation is to create an equivalent version of the original text from a functional point of view with the use of a convenient language.
