Kartsev, Kostiantyn ; Hříbek, Martin (advisor) ; Štipl, Zdeněk (referee)
Throughout their histories, India and Israel have shared many similarities. However, in the mid-20th century, afterthe independenceof two states, relations between them were nowhere close to what they look like today. This was the case until the end of the Cold War; after the Soviet Union collapsed and the world ceased to be bipolar, Indiaredefined its relationship with theJewish State.

The aim of this thesis is to show how relations between the two countries have normalized and improved throughout the years and how current Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party, the BJP, are affecting these relations today. Key words: India, Israel, Indo-Israel relations, Indian foreign policy, Israel foreign policy.
