Pudelová, Tereza ; Volenec, Otakar (advisor) ; Dubský, Zbyněk (referee)
The Kingdom of Morocco is special for its geographical location in the centre of interests of the African, European and American continents and for its position as a monarchy. Morocco s historical tradition as a monarchy does not prevent it from addressing important social changes. In spite of its geopolitical importance, Moroccan history and politics have long been overlooked. International development of the last two decades have shown that the importance of the Kingdom in regional and international environment is growing. Morocco proved to be an important ally of the West and the Gulf states in the Global War on Terror, the events of the Arab Spring and the current refugee crisis. Foreign relations with the United States, France and Spain have a long history and are mostly based on economic and security cooperation. Morocco is also in the centre of interests of the European Union, especially within the framework of the European neighbourhood policy. Relations with the Gulf monarchies have once again gained its importance in the context of the security threat that was posed by the revolutions of the Arab Spring. Moroccan foreign policy agenda is dominated by the dispute over Western Sahara which creates a burden for normalization of relations with Algeria and also for further integration of the Maghreb region.

Development of the international political and economical situation in Iran during the sanction regime
Horáková, Barbora ; Havlová, Radka (advisor) ; Dubský, Zbyněk (referee)
This diploma thesis analyzes the impact of sanctions imposed on Iran by the international community due to unclear issues in the Iranian nuclear program. The aim of the paper is to find out whether the economic situation in Iran has changed due to the sanctions and whether the sanctions have had an impact on its international political position.The analysis of four macroeconomic indicators, which together form the so-called magical quadrangle, will serve to determine the development of the economy. These indicators include the development of the GDP, the inflation, the unemployment and the balance of payments. Given the dependency of the country on oil exports, the development of oil production in the period of sanctions is also being monitored.The results of the analysis show that the economic situation in Iran deteriorated over the duration of the sanctions, especially in 2012 when the European Union stopped buying Iranian oil. The second part is devoted to exploring Iran's relations with the United States, Russia and the European Union.The analysis shows that the relationship between Iran and the United States is more than by sanctions influenced by the fact that Iran is diverting from the civilian nuclear program. On the contrary, Russia maintains allied ties with Iran, which are, however, to some extent limited.This is evidenced by the fact that Russia has approved all the UN sanctions against Iran. The European Union played an important role during the negotiation processbeing the very first to start negotiating with Iran about its nuclear program. For the Union, this was also an important test of the functionality of the Common Foreign and Security Policy Institute.
