Christian democracy in Central European countries which found themselves under the influence of the Soviet Union was not given the oppurtnity to play an important role in the development of the region in a way which was achieved by the Christian democrtas after 1945 in the Western part of Europe.

This thesis handles with the events concerning the school law amendment from 1883. It is well known that it was considerably controversial as well as regressive school policy in the Austrian Empire.

He became the target of incendiary press campaign.

By the synthesis of archival research and study of professional literature I will attempt to map the internal relations of the society and it's public activities.

Grabenbummel- The walk on Příkopy
Smrček, David ; Pokorná, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Hlavačka, Milan (referee)
(in English): "Grabenbummel", a walk of the German Studentenverbindungen in couleur, was one of the most significant displays of a national war over Prague and its public space. Four times between 1898 and 1912 the "bummel" gave opportunity for unrest and riots in the city. Not only it became a political topic, a reason for conflicts between Czech and Germans in the media, Bohemian Diet and Imperial Council, but also a very serious problem for the state and its offices to solve. Based on Czech and German press and archive resources from Národní Archiv České republiky and Österreichisches Staatsarchiv, I am presenting the creation, evolution, and the politicization of the custom. I examined the four main years of the riots, finding multiple important topics, and analyzing some of them in the last chapter. I complemented the thesis with the poems from the press of the Burschenschaften, as well as Czech and German anecdotes and caricatures.
