Krahulíková, Aneta ; Říchová, Blanka (advisor) ; Brunclík, Miloš (referee)
The thesis deals with the position of the Speaker of the House of Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It analyses the position of the Speakers of the parliaments in six selected cases, which are the devolved parliaments and the parliaments of Crown dependencies. The thesis aims to determine whether the position of the Speaker of the parliament in the devolved parliaments of Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, and the parliaments of Crown dependencies, namely the Isle of Man, Jersey, and Guernsey, is derived from the British model. The first part of the thesis introduces the institution of the Speaker of the House of Commons of the United Kingdom and its significant position within the Westminster Parliament.

The last part of the thesis compares the selected cases with the case of the United Kingdom, identifying the shared and different aspects of the position of the Speakers of the parliaments. The...

Németh, Renáta Erzsébet ; Říchová, Blanka (advisor) ; Mlejnek, Josef (referee)
The Master's thesis entitled "Transformation of Viktor Orbán's Government Attitudes towards the Hungarian Minority in the Context of the War in Ukraine" analyses the changing attitudes of the Hungarian government towards its kin-minority inhabiting the Transcarpathian region. Through qualitative content analysis, the thesis examines the changing trends in the attitude of the kin-state government towards the kin-minority in relation to the onset of open warfare between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. The thesis draws on theories of kin-state activism and kin-state politics. For the purpose of a comprehensive understanding, the issue of the analysis is set in the historical developmental framework of the triad of relations between Hungary and the Hungarian national minority and Ukraine.
Consociationalism in the Northern Ireland: theory a practice
Růžičková, Kristýna ; Říchová, Blanka (advisor) ; Guasti, Petra (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the consociational political system in Northern Ireland. This topic appears to be still relevant in the light of recent events, especially Brexit and the non- functional Northern Ireland Assembly. The political system of Northern Ireland is the "flagship" case for both supporters and opponents of the consociational democracy theory. There are many publications about the consociational model in Northern Ireland; however, the publications primarily deal with the early stage of implementing and functioning of the system. It has been 25 years since signing of the Good Friday Agreement and this time frame allows us to evaluate the functioning of the system. That is why this thesis deals with not only the consociational model itself but also with its theoretical reflection and the development of the system since 1998 to this day. The main theoretical frame of the diploma thesis is the consociational democracy theory as defined by Arend Lijphart. The main aim of this thesis is to evaluate the functionig of the political system in Northern Ireland, its positives and negatives and propose possible modifications with respect to the development of the system since signing the Good Friday Agreement to this day, its scholarly theoretical reflection and the development of Northern...
Indigenous people in the Australian political system
Haut, Šimon ; Říchová, Blanka (advisor) ; Guasti, Petra (referee)
This thesis describes the situation of indigenous people in Australia. However, before it is possible to approach the Australian aborigines, it is necessary to outline some theoretical concepts that can be used in the investigation of this issue. In this case, theories from the field of International Relations and International Law will provide us with basics framework. International organizations are also significantly involved in the whole issue, and they are also discussed in this thesis. This list is followed by examples from Sweden, Norway, Canada and New Zealand. All these countries have their own indigenous people and each of them has taken a different approach in dealing with the issue of their respected minority. Their examples show us where Australia could go. Thesis then examines the concepts and changes introduced by individual Australian governments since 1970. Emphasis is placed on distinguishing the Labor Party and Liberal Party governments, as we expect differences in the chosen approaches. A constructed timeline and selected laws and court decisions are used to analyse these differences.

In this thesis work, a specific example of one small northern nation in the Far East of Russia, the Evenks, was taken. In the first part, models of federalism were considered, one of which is Russian federalism. Russian federalism is unique for a number of reasons, but the main thing is a complex federal structure - some subjects of the federation within others, a national-territorial and at the same time territorial type of federation. In the second part, the position of the Evenks in Russia was studied, the indicators of knowledge of the language, the presence of their own territorial autonomies, the evolution of their position within the Russian state were studied. In the third part, the experiences of other states...
HIstorical arguments in politics: Interpretation of Slovak History between 1989-1992
Žiljak, Filip ; Říchová, Blanka (advisor) ; Charvát, Jan (referee)
This diploma thesis is a case study that is focused on application of the historical arguments in politics. This focus is closely oriented on the analysis of the interpretation concepts of Slovak national history in the period between November 1989 until the end of Czechoslovak federation in 1.1.1993. In the initial chapters, I primarily focus on the introduction into the issue of nationalism and national history. In the next chapter, I create a basic cleavage for Slovak national history and from that the derived typology for the concepts of the interpretation of national history. In the last chapter, I analyze the interpretation and its application by specific political actors in the above-mentioned period, which I try to add into the typology that was created in the previous chapter.

Klementová, Lucie ; Říchová, Blanka (advisor) ; Skutilová, Marie (referee)
The bachelor's thesis focuses on the government model in Northern Ireland, it deals in more detail with the issue of applying the consociational principle after the 2022 elections. This issue is introduced by the theoretical concept of consociational democracy, when is placed in a historical context, where this thesis describes the formation of the consociational principle of governance in Northern Ireland and then analyses the individual suspensions of the Northern Ireland Assembly, whose examination mainly observes the main characteristics of consociational democracy by Arend Lijphart. These theses aim to find answers to the research question of whether consociational democracy is a working implement for contemporary governance in Northern Ireland. Analysis of the results of the election and subsequent post-election negotiations show that the functionality of the electoral principle of governance is not optimal and leads Northern Ireland to a situation without a functional Northern Ireland Assembly, with a still-rising number of calls for a change in the formation of the government.
