Mazanec, Jakub ; Valkoun, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Šedivý, Miroslav (referee)
Jakub Mazanec Water Projects on the Nile in the 19th Century and Their Influence in British-French Relations At the beginning of the 19th century, the era of building of the first modern hydraulic projects on the Nile in Egypt was launched. During the first half of the 19th century, France had a significat influence on Egypt, which was also reflected in hydraulic projects on the Nile. On the contraty, since the British ocuppation of Egypt in 1882 until the end of the century, the influence of London dominated. The need of water and the construction of major projects shaped the policies of France and Great Britain towards Nile basin. The aim of this thesis is to prove or refute the hypothesis, that hydraulic projects realized on the Nile during the 19th century represented a significant issue of friction between France and Great Britain. And at the same time this thesis tries to prove a change in the perception of water from the side of Egyptian authorities.

Mazanec, Jakub ; Skřivan, Aleš (advisor) ; Valkoun, Jaroslav (referee)
This work deals with analysis of publication of Gülhane noble decree (3 November 1839) which is an eminent event in the modern history of the Ottoman Empire. Promises of sultan Abdülmecid I contained in this document in fact opened the door for a reform period called tanzimat, which is mostly put between years 1839-1876. This work also focuses on earlier attempts of reorganization and modernization of the empire, especially on reforms of sultan Selim III and sultan Mahmut II. Knowledge of these reforms is necessary for understanding the events of 1839. An important part of this work is formed by analysing circumstances of Gülhane decree origins and the English version of its text.
