Freshwater mussels (Unionidae) in CITES
This work assesses the international trade in the Unionidae species from 1987 to 2015. The species of the Unionidae family are listed in the CITES International Convention. Most of them (26 species from 12 genera) are included in Appendix I of CITES, only three species (Cyprogenia aberti, Pleurobema clava and Epioblasma torulosa rangiana) are listed in Annex II. They are mainly US endemic, or USA and Canada. Most of them occur only in one or two rivers, often only in a certain section of the river. These species are host specific. Some of them are bound to only one genus or species of fish. From a trading point of view, Unionidae were traded in the following forms: shells, carved shells, derivatives, live individuals and specimens. The species Dromus dromas, Pleurobema clava, Cyprogenia aberti and Conradilla caelata were traded the most. The most common was the trade in the shells of individuals whose origin dates from before the inclusion of the species Unionidae to CITES for commercial purposes. These individuals were mostly of an unknown provenance and if the country of origin was stated, it was United States of America. The places, from which they were exported most were Hongong and the Philippines. The most frequent place of import were the US.

Gravity Model Estimation of the Russian Export: The Role of FDI
Horváthová, Monika ; Svoboda, Karel (advisor) ; Vykoukal, Jiří (referee) ; Cibulková, Petra (referee)
The main objective of this thesis was to examine the determinants of Russian export directed to its 36 main trading partners. Employing the Gravity model, the standard gravity variables, such as economic masses of the trading partners and their distance, were estimated as having significant impacts on the volume of export from Russia. However, a special attention was paid to the role of FDI, studying whether FDI flows or FDI stock act as complements or substitutes of the export. Unfortunately, with the help of the Fixed-effects and the Random-effects estimation methods we came to statistically insignificant conclusions, which might have been caused by the prevalence of missing observations in the FDI variables.
Machine learning-based approaches to forecasting international trade
Kovařík, Tomáš ; Semerák, Vilém (advisor) ; Macháček, Vít (referee)
In this thesis I focus on comparison of gravity model estimated with ordinary least squares and Poisson pseudo-maximum likelihood with regression techniques based on machine learning, namely support vector machines, random forests, and arti_cial neural networks. I discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these approaches and compare their forecasting accuracy on exports data. I demonstrate that random forest models and arti_cial neural networks provide superior forecasting accuracy.

Micikowska, Natalia ; Pauknerová, Monika (advisor) ; Rozehnal, Aleš (referee) ; Zahradníčková, Marie (referee)
Obligational means of securing claims in the international trade Abstract The subject of this dissertation is obligational means of securing claims and their functioning in the commercial transactions with international coverage. The thesis is primarily concentrated upon the statutory securing instruments most often encountered in practice i.e. surety, financial (bank) demand guarantees, contractual assignment of receivables causa cavendi, letters of credit and letters of intent. The thesis is divided into four parts. The first part deals with the introduction into the subject of negotiable instruments of securing obligations, provides an overview of the historical development of selected instruments, endeavours to outline the difference between the securing instruments conceived as rights in rem and those seen as obligations and eventually raises the issue of methodology. Afterwards the analysis is carried out on two levels: in the second part the author focuses on the applicable approach in determining the governing law in accordance with international and national regulations and afterwards on the topic of the unified norms developed by the international organisations that may be relevant in the light of the thesis' subject-matter. In this regard the works of the International Chamber of Commerce in...

Heyzl, Martin ; Váška, Jan (advisor) ; Kasáková, Zuzana (referee)
Bachelor thesis Great Britain and Free Trade, Analysis of the British parliamentary debate in the context of TTIP negotiations deals with the stances of major British political parties, the Conservative Party, the Labour Party and to lesser extent also the Liberal Democrats, towards the free trade and the TTIP protocol. The thesis first examines the relationship of individual parliamentary parties to international and therefore free trade. The next chapter describes the TTIP protocol, which was to be a free trade agreement between the European Union, of which Britain is a part, and the United States. In subsequent analysis of parliamentary debates in 2013-2016 the thesis examines stances of concerned political parties towards the free trade and the TTIP protocol. In the course of this thesis I had worked with the research question in following wording: "What are the reservations and possible limits of Great Britain in promoting free trade - in a comparison of the three main concepts of British politics that can be traced to the example of TTIP?". In the discussion and the subsequent conclusion the work answers this question, which are the limits of the support and possible reservations of the British political parties to the free trade and the TTIP protocol, and also why the parties have a...
