The New Regionalism and the institutional framework of the regional cooperation in the Western Balkans
Šindelář, Jan ; Králová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Šístek, František (referee)
The presented thesis is analyzing the regional cooperation in the Western Balkans (WB) focusing on interactions of local actors. Theoretical background is based on the new regionalism, a theoretical approach to regional interactions. Contemporary studies on New Regionalism (NR) actually do not consider the Western Balkans to be part of this process and as a result we lack sufficient information about the basic characteristics of this region. The author proves that the WB is engaged in the process of the new regionalism and in fact by focusing on the institutional structure he demonstrates that several parallel processes are ongoing in the region as for example regional cooperation, integration or cooperation with another region. For the purpose of this research two projects of regional cooperation were chosen, South Eastern European Cooperation Process (SEECP) and the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) which are regarded as the main pillars of the political cooperation in the WB. By examining their structure we may understand the relevance of the region as an independent actor and the general aims of the regional cooperation.
Bulgarian National Identity in Macedonia, 1870 - 1878
Tiholov, Ivaylo ; Šístek, František (advisor) ; Brisku, Adrian (referee)
This thesis examines the question of the Bulgarian national identity in the historical-geographical region of Macedonia in the period between the establishment of the Bulgarian Exarchate and the Eastern Crisis (1875-1878). Macedonia remained on the periphery of the Bulgarian national religious movement, which meant that the processes of national maturation took place there at a slower pace and simultaneously with the growing foreign influences: Greek, Serbian, and Catholic. Therefore, the thesis explores the intercommunal relations among the Orthodox population of the Ottoman Empire in the Balkans. The aim of the text is to look into how the Bulgarian Exarchate, as a subordinate to the Ottoman Empire institution, attempted to influence the Bulgarian national identity in Macedonia. This happened in several different ways, because the Exarchate was responsible for the spiritual issues among the local Orthodox population as well as for some secular ones, including the educational activities. This thesis uses the methods of content analysis and triangulation of memoirs, newspapers, letters, and diplomatic documentation to present the problem posed in the title in its entirety. As a result, it is found that both the local Bulgarian population of Macedonia incited the activities of the Exarchate and the...
Bosnian diaspora through the eyes of Sarajevans - perceptions of emigration and stereotypes
Čajić, Sanina ; Šístek, František (advisor) ; Žíla, Ondřej (referee)
The master's thesis entitled "Bosnian diaspora through the eyes of Sarajevans - perceptions of emigration and stereotypes" brings a closer view of the Bosnian diaspora and public opinion about it from the perspective of Sarajevans. It represents a socio-psychological qualitative research based on the analysis of 18 semi-structured interviews with the inhabitants of Sarajevo. Using existing theoretical concepts, the primary goal is to explore and list the most widespread stereotypes about the Bosnian diaspora, regardless of whether they are war refugees or economic emigrants. The thesis also represents an attempt to identify the main reasons for their existence and maintenance and looks for possible proposals for their elimination. Whether the departure is legitimate in the eyes of Sarajevans, whether the diaspora lives better, how it was affected by life in the "West" and to what extent Sarajevans are aware of the diaspora's potential and benefits for Bosnia and Herzegovina are some of the questions this thesis seeks to answer. The political and ethnic dimension of the diaspora is not the subject of research, as cultural stereotypes about the Bosnian diaspora do not distinguish between different ethnicities. To complete the overall context, the emigration trends of Bosnia and Herzegovina are also...
Border Changes between Italy and Yugoslavia after the Second World War
Susová, Petra ; Šístek, František (advisor) ; Žíla, Ondřej (referee)
The bachelor thesis called "Border Changes between Italy and Yugoslavia after the Second World War" deals with the post-war settlement in the Trieste region. It focuses on attitudes of Italian governmental and other representatives to this issue. The aim of this paper is to analyse their visions and to compare them with the real development. It covers mainly topics of the borders' drawing up, the possible establishment of Free Territory of Trieste, its administration including difficulties related to the unsuccessful nomination of the Governor and the road to the London Memorandum in 1954 as well. The bachelor thesis also analyses the international political development as well as the national Italian political situation which impacted Trieste matters. The campaign before general elections in 1948 affected the problems when the western allies promised Italy to integrate the area concerned to the republic to turn the election results in favour of democratic parties. Moreover, this paper analyses changes which happened after the Yugoslav-Soviet split and which had the impact on the solution of the Trieste question. It also follows difficult negotiations which lead to the end of problems between Italy and Yugoslavia concerning the Trieste region.
Renewable Energy Sector in The Republic of Serbia: Constraints in Renewable Energy Market Development
Drobnjak, Marina ; Svoboda, Karel (advisor) ; Šístek, František (referee)
This thesis analyzes the challenges associated with the countries in socioeconomic and political transition when on the path of integrating into the developed world unions or on the path of fulfilling projected renewable energy targets. As an example country, or as a study case here, The Republic of Serbia has been selected. The thesis addresses the question of how the Renewable Energy Market in Serbia is developing and how are the challenges being addressed. Thesis reveals that main obstacles come from the ownership of the energy and the power gird assets which are still entirely owned and controlled by the State. Due to this fact it is hard to introduce the planned renewable projects, mostly to be developed and owned by foreign entities, and at the same time to be forced to reduce domestic power production out of the thermal power plants. However, by being on the path to the EU, the renewable energy targets and the RES (Renewable Energy Sources) market have to be accomplished and the government has to show full legislative and policy support. It is also realized that there is a significant discrepancy between the "say and do" in the case of The Republic of Serbia, at least so far. The thesis highlights the important driving factors that, despite of the local resistance and sluggishness,...
Ion Iliescu and his role in the forming of the modern romanian democracy
Kocian, Jiří ; Tejchman, Miroslav (advisor) ; Šístek, František (referee)
The problems of Romanian transition to democracy after the year 1989 were in large part determined by the form of previous regime. Because of the extreme pressure and control exercised on the opposition and personal dictatorship of the regime of Nicolae Ceaușescu, no major dissent groups or opposition centers possessing the potential to take part in the overthrow of the regime existed. In the swift and still unclear events of December 1989, National Salvation Front rose to hold the power, being directed by Ion Iliescu at the same time. As a formerly top positioned communist apparatchik, who had been swept out from his status after several conflicts with Ceausescu, he transferred almost complete communist structure under the newly formed regime, including Securitate, the secret service. Deconstruction of the former regime was actually performed by the execution of the former president and his wife and by trials of several Securitate generals. Iliescu concentrated overwhelming majority of the state power around NSF and in contradiction with his original proclamations postponed transition to democracy. New regime, which was led by Ion Iliescu demonstrated in its ideological presentation and exercise of power apparent similarities with the era of communist rule, nevertheless, it worked under formal...
Slovenia's Road to Independence
Mašínská, Klára ; Tejchman, Miroslav (advisor) ; Šístek, František (referee)
Bachelor thesis Slovenia's Road to Independence deals with development of Slovenia after the death of Tito in 1980 until year 1991, when Slovenia declared its independence. It also shortly includes development before 1980, because these events are equally important for development in this area. There has been during this time more or less conflicts between Slovenia and the rest of Yugoslavia, which pushed through centralization and wanted to keep united Yugoslavia, while in Slovenia took the lead liberal communists. Slovenia profited from the support of Germany, Austria and Vatican during its road to independence. However Slovenia profited from more advantages - geographic location, ethnic homogeneity or favourable economic situation. But Slovenia still saw one option to remain in Yugoslavia - transformation from federation to the confederation. With this transformation is associated release of relations within the federation, but it was rejected by the leadership of Yugoslavia. After a unequivocal referendum about independence, was proclaimed independence in June 1991, which, however, did not recognize Yugoslavia and broke out the Ten-Day War, which fortunately did not brought about great loss of life. After acceptance of Brioni Declaration Slovenia became fully independent country with...
Historical Narrative and Identity Building: Museums in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Knappová, Barbora ; Králová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Šístek, František (referee)
The thesis analyses historical narratives presented in exhibitions of the History Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo and the Museum of Republika Srpska in Banja Luka. It also clarifies who promotes that particular representation of history and which factors influence the decisions museums make. The thesis builds on theoretical literature related to a role of museums in a process of memory institutionalization and identity building as well as to their potential to bring reconciliation in post-conflict society. The subjects of the research are the main museums dealing with the recent history in the two Bosnian autonomous entities, with the History Museum being in predominantly Bosniak while the Museum of Republika Srpska in predominantly Serb environment. The thesis explores the development of the museums, their organization, financing, self-presentation and most importantly the narratives of their permanent and temporary exhibitions. These are analysed especially from the perspective of definition of own group versus the others. The analysis covers museums' activities in the period from 1995 to present days. The thesis argues in detail that historical narrative promoted by the History Museum in Sarajevo reproduces the Bosniak narrative despite its efforts to play a role of state-level...

These three citizenships were...
