Role of the US Foreign Policy Advisers
Blažek, Jiří ; Klepárník, Vít (advisor) ; Koubek, Jiří (referee)
This thesis focuses on the role of the advisors in the US foreign policy, especially in the decision-making process, which constitutes a part of presidential system in the United States of America. The methodology of the conceptual part is based on individual typologies of presidential control of the US administrations. The thesis also describes evolution of this discipline, which in the USA is studied in the field of Foreign Policy Analysis. The conceptual scheme of the presidential control is based on the models by Johnson, George and Mitchell. The theoretical approach to the roles of advisors is patterned on the models of Mulcahy, Crabb and Hönig. The thesis combines these theoretical bases to describe and explain the evolution of presidential control typologies. Some problematic particularities of the Mitchell typology are also reviewed in this part. The next part based on the theoretical models analyses empirical reality. The analytical part constitutes of two case studies, which describe the role of the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs in the key deliberations of the presidential administrations of William J. Clinton (reaction to the conflict in Bosnia) and George W. Bush (preparation of the invasion in Iraq). The aim of this thesis is to applicate the typologies of...
Forming of developmental axes and regions in the Czech Republic
Lauermannová, Anna ; Blažek, Jiří (advisor) ; Müller, Jan (referee)
The aim of this study is to answer the question if it is possible in first decennium of 21st century to identify development axes or poles in Czech republic. In my research I focused on local level (NUTS V), because in many previous studies it is said, that the proces of spatial differentiation is in these days shifting from higher hiearchical levels to local level. I used the method of spatial autocorrelation because it helps to identify clusters of municipalities with high level of development potential (hot spots) or low level of development potential (cold spots) The development poles are defined as cluster of municipalities with high development potential. The main hypothesis is that the development axe between Pilsen - Prague - Liberec is deepening and that there will be discernible new development axe connecting Prague with Hradec Králové and Pardubice. This study also gives an overwiev of the most important theoretical concepts concerning development poles and axes. I also describe the aplication of these concepts in Czech republic with regard to acceptance of Territorial Agenda of the European Union .

Housková, Štěpánka ; Blažek, Jiří (advisor) ; Csank, Pavel (referee)
Global production networks in Czechia in the case study of aircraft industry This thesis is dedicated to aircraft industry in the Czechia. It uses a relatively new concept of global production networks (GPN), which examines functionally integrated but geographically dispersed production networks. The aim of this work is to show how are the Czech companies involved in the global division of labor. Almost a quarter of manufacturers in the aircraft industry is able to participate in global production of aircraft, although at lower levels of the supply chain. In addition to this production, there is production of small and ultra-light aircrafts, which achieves international reputation. In this manufacturing sector there are companies producing basic components and also throughout the aircraft. The biggest influence on, what tier companies are, is the age of company and in the case of companies involved in the production networks of large aircrafts also foreign ownership and size. In case of companies producing small aircraft it is tradition and experience than the size and ownership. The capacities of research depend on the position of company in the firm hierarchy. Most companies are suppliers of several firms and they are also involved in the production in other sectors. Very important institutional support...

Application of Related Variety Concept in Selected Countries of Central and Eastern Europe
Meislová, Kristýna ; Blažek, Jiří (advisor) ; Skokan, Karel (referee)
The study deals with application of related variety concept and other evolutionary economic geography approaches in the economic landscape of postsocialist states of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The goal was to define different types of variety and explore the relationship between these varieties and economic development in CEE countries between 1993 and 2009. The analysis is based on the theoretical and analytical framework presented in studies realized in the most developed countries of Western Europe. The important finding is that this kind of research allow to conclude that different types of variety influence the economic development, but some of the results are different from those in prior studies. The porfolio effect of unrelated variety was not confirmed. However, the results show strong evidence that related variety stimulates employment growth and usually contributes to GDP growth of CEE countries. The results also indicate, that high variety of related sectors could be crucial for future development of new industries (especially in Central Europe). Keywords: evolutionary economic geography, related and unrelated variety, economic development, Central and Eastern Europe
