Kneřová, Alžběta Klára ; Šafařík, Petr (advisor) ; Nigrin, Tomáš (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the influence of new social movements on the development of West Berlin with emphasis on the Kreuzberg district and the SO 36 citizen initiative in the time period from 1979 to 1984. The main aim of the thesis is to answer questions on how the new social movements influenced the urban and the housing policy of West Berlin, and what steps the members of the Kreuzberg social movements have taken to change it apart from the physical occupation of houses. In a wider context, the thesis deals with new social movements in Germany, mainly with squatting in West Berlin. The thesis is also devoted to West Berlin's Kreuzberg district and its development after the construction of the Berlin Wall until the beginning of the squatting wave in the late 1970s, including a description of the then urban policy. The central focus of the thesis is the SO 36 citizen initiative that contributed to the creation of the squatting wave in Kreuzberg and other parts of West Berlin by the first occupations of vacant houses in order to repair them. The paper analyses different ways in which the members of the initiative tried to influence the urban and housing policy of the time, such as publishing their own monthly newspaper or information leaflets.

Immigration and City: Integration Policies in Berlin and Vienna 1971-2011
Dimitrov, Michal ; Pešek, Jiří (advisor) ; Klípa, Ondřej (referee) ; Zimmermann, Volker (referee)
The doctoral thesis compares and interprets the development of local integration policies of (West) Berlin and Vienna in 1971-2011 on the background of the transformation of Germany and Austria from ethnically homogenous to multicultural countries. Both metropolises first balanced between refusing the permanent integration of immigrants ("temporary integration") and selection of foreigners suitable for integration, later searched for a balance between the traditional concept of assimilation and the more modern multicultural approach; in the last decade they favoured the diversity policy, in more or less close connection to the concept of interculturalism. Although both cities represent essentially similar cases, this development was not straightforward and simultaneous, especially in the first phase before the migration crisis at the turn of the 1980s and 1990s. The research study focuses mainly on two questions: why the development of local integration policy in West Berlin started significantly earlier than in Vienna and why both cities started to support diversity policy at the beginning of the new century. The comparative framework derived from the "contrast of contexts" method interprets the development of local integration policies in the context of the national and transnational political...

Symbol of democracy? Changes in perception of the Reichstag Building after 1990.
Nováková, Tereza ; Nigrin, Tomáš (advisor) ; Emler, David (referee)
The topics of the bachelor thesis are the symbolic meanings connected to the representative architecture, and also the discussion and its participants that influence the process of creating new symbolic meanings. Representative buildings still pose symbols for members of the nation and help to establish the national identity. They also reflect historical events and are bearers of cultural memory, which is also besides other aspects created by political representatives. The subject of this research is the Reichstag building in Berlin, which, in the past, was associated with both positive and negative connotations in connection with the transformation of its appearance and function. The aim of my thesis is to outline the discussion that took place in the 1990s and to introduce its actors who gave the building its present appearance. The paper presents important turning points for the reconstruction, first being the colloquia on the topic of rebuilding of the Reichstag building and reconstruction requirements in the tender, and secondly the dispute over the cupola of the Reichstag and the artistic project "Wrapped Reichstag". By both of these events would be introduced the arguments for and against in order to describe how symbolic meanings should be attached to the building after reconstruction. In...

However, it was the fuel of social progress as an open forum for communication between genders as well. The main part focuses on a comprehensive analysis of the American Bar and its development as the phenomenon, based on the comparison of European cities, particularly London, Berlin and Prague. The main aim of the study was to analyze the phenomenon as the location of the post-war feelings and the option for the new wave of hedonism associated with rising living standards, while the cities were given into clash in their intensity manifestations of the phenomenon. The thesis outlines the overall atmosphere of the bar from many different perspectives, above all, through the forms of bar promotion, the activities of associations, legislative responses, the normal operation of the bar, the professional part of the bar and the everyday socio-cultural impact on the lives of consumers, but also by reflecting on the bar culture in art.
