Nuclear Security Studies Scholarship: A Social Network Analysis
Kučmáš, Kryštof ; Smetana, Michal (advisor) ; Plechanovová, Běla (referee)
Nuclear Security research is an established subdiscipline in security studies. According to some authors is this field of research currently split into two groups of scientists - the "political scientists" and "historians" - who employ widely different approaches to research of the subject and communicate with each other on a minimal basis. This master thesis uses tools of bibliometric citational analysis to validate the existence of this gap on the level of academic citations. The author analyses this phenomenon on the dataset based on the data from the database Scopus. Results of the research bring new insights into the citational structure of set subdiscipline, which shows that the presumed gap between two supposedly not communicating groups does not appear on the level citations.

Throughout the thesis am focusing on the historical background with emphasis on the colonization of Egypt and its importance in the Franco-British relations. I am also putting the emphasis on clarifying the possible reasons that led to the Fashoda crisis as well as on introducing the main protagonists and their plans to take advantage of the crisis. The thesis than chronologically continues to evaluate the critical months at the end of 1898 and the beginning of 1899, which could be understood as the culmination point of the crisis. The thesis also tries to assess the mood and opinion of the public in both countries in the course of the crisis and even after signing the accords that put an end to this quarrel. At least I am trying to define and to evaluate the impact and influence of this specific event on the latter development of international relations between the two countries and also, I am trying to answer the question whether the Fashoda crisis...

Kvapil, Jakub ; Karlas, Jan (advisor) ; Plechanovová, Běla (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the topic of environmental policy integration (EPI) in the context of global efforts to achieve sustainable development. The aim is to create an analytical framework that will make it possible to examine the level of EPI achieved within individual policy sectors, in this case agriculture. EPI is conceptualized as a rational policy-making process and special focus is put on the institutional and procedural settings of the sector. The relationship of sustainable development and EPI is also of interest, the understanding of which is crucial for grasping the researched issues. Part of the work is the proposal of an alternative analytical framework for examining the achieved level of EPI in a selected sector, which is applied in the last part to the agricultural sector of the Czech Republic. The output of the analysis is a summary of the achieved level of EPI in the agricultural sector, in terms of setting the institutional and procedural framework.

Europeanisation of municipalities in the Czech Republic
Schacherlová, Sylva ; Martinková, Viera (advisor) ; Plechanovová, Běla (referee)
The diploma thesis Europeanisation of Municipalities in the Czech Republic deals with the effects of membership in the European Union on the administrative structures of selected municipalities. This is a comparative case study of municipalities of various sizes and significance, namely the capital city of Prague, the statutory city of Pilsen and the city with extended powers Pisek. The aim of the thesis is to clarify which institutions in these municipalities manage the European agenda. The thesis follows three dimensions of the concept of Europeanisation (top-down; bottom-up and horizontal), which allows us to observe this issue from different angles. Research questions follow the logic of these three dimensions and the last research question focuses on comparing the Europeanisation of selected municipalities and identifying differences based on their size. The main source of the information was interviews with officials and politicians responsible for the European agenda in selected municipalities. The results of the work confirm the theoretical assumption that the size of municipalities has a significant impact on the management of the EU agenda. Financial and administrative capacities, the setting of European funds for the given city and the opinions of local political elites play the role...

Hecht, Petr ; Kučerová, Irah (advisor) ; Plechanovová, Běla (referee)
The diploma thesis Brexit and its implications for European integration uses the method of explanatory case study in an effort to analyze the causes and impacts of the Great Britain's withdrawal from the European Union. The thesis therefore examines the historical context of the complicated relations between Great Britain and the European Communities from their formation in the 1950s to the present, which ultimately led to the historic step of United Kingdom's withdrawal from the EU on 31 January 2020. The thesis then maps the negotiations regarding the Withdrawal Agreement and the future arrangement of mutual relations, which took place between 2016 - 2020. The effects of the UK's withdrawal from the EU on the composition and functioning of the European institutions and the impact of the changes on the remaining member states are also analyzed. In addition, the work presents possible arrangements of economic relations between the two parties, which are currently the subject of negotiations between the UK and the EU during the transitional period from 1 February 2020 to 31 December 2020. Lastly, the thesis works with the White Paper presented by the European Commission in 2017 in order to analyze five possible scenarios for the future development of European integration. For this, the thesis...
Negotiation analysis of the third economic adjustment program for Greece: Greek strategy explained
Kult, Jakub ; Parízek, Michal (advisor) ; Plechanovová, Běla (referee)
Thesis title reveals a lot about its intentions and objectives. Its research target is to explain the behavior and strategy of Greece in negotiations prior to agreement on the third economic adjustment program. Thesis asks what the key characteristic of the Greek bargaining strategy was. Negotiation analysis approach is employed as the theoretical/methodological framework. It leads us to examination of following factors. Actors' interests and preferences have to be understood and distinguished from positions. Next, alternatives to negotiated agreement, creating and claiming value techniques, and actions to change the game constitute the remaining basis of negotiation analysis. Moreover, the element of bargaining power is added as a relevant concept to research bargaining strategy. That leads us also to commitment tactic, use of threats, and commitment through domestic audiences and audience costs. Last but not least, two-level games factor is considered as well. Hypothesis and further explanation of analytical technique is followed by three chapters that provide historical context of the negotiations. Then finally empirical analysis is done based on theoretical framework mentioned above. My research shows mixed results. Greek strategy was significantly inconsistent and therefore I cannot consider...
