Euroscepticism in Czech and German daily newspapers - analysis of the media portrayal of GDPR and EU
Černý, Tomáš ; Kasáková, Zuzana (advisor) ; Bauer, Paul (referee)
This thesis analyzes how the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the European Union was portrayed in selected Czech and German printed media throughout the year 2018 and investigates whether Euroscepticism - in its widest sense - expresses itself within the articles. The research on Euroscepticism in media so far has largely focused on "historic" events and "significant" questions of the European integration, not on technical-legal topics, i.e. topics with presumably lesser impact on the future course of the European project. An analysis of Euroscepticism in media texts dealing with a specific EU legislative act has so far been lacking. The paper at hand therefore examines whether Euroscepticism manifests itself also in connection to such topics. As denying and/or criticizing EU's policies is accepted by most academics as an expression of Euroscepticism, next to denying the EU as such, this study defines Euroscepticism as any criticism on part of the EU and the GDPR, since this regulation can be understood as embodiment of EU's policy on data protection. The paper uses a comparative research design, using the method of content analysis of six printed daily newspapers, namely Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Bild, Mladá fronta DNES, Právo, and Blesk. The results...

The Bachelor thesis deals with the phenomenon of Euroscepticism, which is demonstrated by the example of two political parties. The subject of the analysis are the German party Alternative for Germany (AfD) and the Czech party Freedom and Direct Democracy - Tomio Okamura (SPD). The thesis firstly addresses Euroscepticism in general, observing and comparing the level of public Euroscepticism in Germany and the Czech Republic. Subsequently, both political groups are categorized with the help of three presented theoretical concepts. Special emphasis is placed on historical development of AfD and SPD, which serves as a basis for exploring the motivation to establish them. Based on the analysis and comparison of the respective electoral programs to the European and national elections, the thesis compares the program priorities with regard to the attitude towards European integration. The current European Parliament election programs 2019, together with a record of personal interviews with party representatives, allow us to describe their ideal vision of the European cooperation.

Compatibility of both scales is tested. The necessary data collected via questionnaire survey. The thesis concludes that youth political organizations are relevant...

European integration through sceptical prism in the European Parliament
Kruhmalova, Irina ; Němec, Jan (advisor) ; Müller, Karel (referee)
The current rise of Euroscepticism has been observed in all EU Members States and has become the central concern in the European Union for governing bodies to deal with. Therefore, continued French dissatisfaction with the European Union, the British exit from the European Union and a rise of both left and right radical wings throughout the Union have appeared at the center of European debate. Regarding the fact that the only directed body at the supranational level is the European Parliament, it is necessary to understand how national demands for sovereignty can be projected on supranational level. With the ratification of Lisbon Treaty, the European Parliament was established as a significant co-decision body. As an additional outcome, political groups inside the EP got an opportunity to introduce their nominees to the Commission presidency through the lead candidate (Spitzenkandidaten) system, where appointed politicians were expected to present their programmes in all EU countries and become familiar to European citizens. The conducted study pays attention to the phenomenon of Euroscepticism and its place in the European Parliament.
