Attempts of Regulation of Coca Cultivation in Peru and Bolivia
Kšírová, Kristýna ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Krausz Hladká, Malvína (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the topic of coca cultivation regulation attempts in Peru and Bolivia. The main goal is to determine in which aspects are the two policies different and if one of the proposed models can be described as more effective. The author introduces the forming moments of anti-drug policy on the world scale, she continues by conceptualising coca as a plant traditionally used by indigenous population and also a substance that was classified as a narcotic substance by the UN. The author then proposes a comparative analysis of the following aspects: the UNODC data on coca cultivation, the characteristics of the areas of coca cultivation and the role of coca unions in each state. In the last section the historical evolution of anti-drug policies is also explored. The results suggest that the states differ in each of the studied areas. The author assumes the more effective model is the Bolivian policy of 'social control'.
Impact of Organized Crime on the Press Freedom: Comparison of Mexico and Colombia
Horák, Benjamin ; Krausz Hladká, Malvína (advisor) ; Soukup, Jaromír (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with selected elements of organized crime and its impact on the freedom of the press. The thesis aims to confirm or refute the hypothesis that organized crime impacts press freedom using a qualitative comparative case study analysis of selected countries. As mentioned above, organized crime is such a complex concept that it is essential to define the specific actors or elements of this criminal activity. This paper focuses on selected actors, which are organized criminal groups - drug cartels and corruption as an element of organized crime. The research questions the thesis seeks to answer are "How do drug cartels affect the freedom of the press?" and "How does corruption affect press freedom?". If the hypothesis is confirmed, the author will seek to answer the additional sub-question, "How do Mexico and Colombia approach the impact of organized crime on press freedom?". The results of the thesis confirm the hypothesis and conclude that organized crime impacts press freedom. The two specific sources of this influence, i.e., drug cartels and corruption, affect press freedom mainly through extensive violence against journalists, thus having a systematic and long-term negative impact on their security. Another means of influence is undermining the state's capacity and...
Freighter Lidice Affair and its Impact on Czechoslovak-French Relations
Šaldová, Daniela ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Perottino, Michel (referee)
The bachelor thesis "Freighter Lidice Affair and its Impact on Czechoslovak-French Relations" examines both the event of the affair itself and its influence on Czechoslovak French relations. The thesis is mainly devoted to the freighter Lidice affair itself, the interception of a Czechoslovak cargo ship carrying arms for the Algerian rebels. The affair is set in the context of Czechoslovak support for the FLN. The next part of the thesis deals with relations particularly in the financial field between years 1960 and 1964 and attempts to assess their development during these years. The work is also based on the period documents from the Archives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic and period newspaper articles.
Latin American Union? The Slow and Incomplete Process of Latin American Integration
Fridlund, William St John ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Földes, Kristián (referee)
This thesis explores the lack of success of Latin American integration. It evaluates nine extant Latin American blocs and compares them to four blocs from other regions of the world. It then applies the theories of neofunctionalism, liberal intergovernmentalism, and postfunctionalism to each case to see which theory is best equipped to explain Latin America's integration failure.
"Special relationship" before the World War 2?
Bayer, Michael ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Plechanovová, Běla (referee)
The thesis describes the relationship between the United States of America and Great Britain in the period before the Second World War, with emphasis on the interwar period. The two Anglophone countries have been in some elementary connection since the War of Independence, which did develop further during the administration of President Theodor Roosevelt and later his cousin and distant relative Franklin D. Roosevelt. However, close cooperation, as was the case after the outbreak of World War II and during the Cold War, was rather non-existent and relations were not always ideal. What never disappeared, however, was the mutual effort to lead the discussion, despite almost sometimes hostile relations. This work aimed to examine those difficult relations between Great Britain and the United States and to show how mutual relations changed and over time connected their destinies.
Great Britain and Spanish Civil War: A Contribution to the Changing Attitudes of British Elites and Foreign Policy on the Background of the Conflict in Spain
Jan, Albert ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Ditrych, Ondřej (referee)
Spanish Civil War in contemporary sense is used to be portrayed as a prelude to the WW2, as well as a proving ground for military equipment of Europe's dictatorships. Rather than warfare, this bachelor thesis is concerned with international dimension of said conflict, specifically its influence on Great Britain. British role in this war is, as opposed to that of nazi Germany, fascist Italy or communist Soviet Union, not well known, despite its policy of non-intervention having significant impact on the wars outcome. My intention is to explain generally the position of Great Britain and its development, as well as attitudes of certain british politicians: Neville Chamberlain, Anthony Eden, Winston Churchill and Clement Attlee. Their subsequent conduct during events leading to the outbreak of the WW2 was in my opinion heavily influenced by their experience with the conflict in Spain. I strive to contribute to better understanding of these steps of Great Britain, as from Central Europe's point of view they may seem irrational. However if we set them in the context of british foreign policy tradition and the situation Great Britain had to face with Spanish Civil War, we will reach in my opinion some interesting conclusions.
Comparation of separatist organizations ETA and IRA
Klouček, Petr ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Doboš, Bohumil (referee)
This thesis focuses on two separatist organisations, the Basque ETA and the Irish IRA. The thesis uses the method of comparative analysis, therefore, it aims to find out what were the similarities and differences between the separatist organisations. Among other things, the thesis looks at the development of Basque and Irish nationalism and examines the historical background of both conflicts, as the origins of both conflicts are very important for the comparison itself. Both the Basque ETA and the Irish IRA are in fact the best known modern separatist organisations that were active in Europe in the second half of the 20th century, and it is safe to say that they left their tragic mark on both Spanish and British territory, alternately changing the political situation in both countries. Although the thesis also explores and develops Irish and Basque nationalism, the primary aim of the thesis is to compare ETA and the IRA, from the period of their emergence. The temporal dimensions of the comparison will be slightly different for the two organisations, as ETA will be examined from 1959, the year of its foundation. For the IRA, the beginning of the modern conflict is 1969 and the formation of the Provisional Irish Republican Army (PIRA for short), but the origins of this organisation go back to the...
The Influence of the Cuban Revolution on the US Approach to the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua
Kaluha, Adam ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Krausz Hladká, Malvína (referee)
This thesis examines US foreign policy towards Latin American countries during the Cold War. The purpose of this thesis is to determine if the Cuban Revolution influenced the United States' foreign policy stance towards the revolution in Nicaragua. In order to do this, the thesis uses mostly analysis of U.S. State Department documents published in the Foreign Relations of the United States book series combined with scholarly literature and articles. The thesis is divided into three main parts. In the first part, I examine U.S. foreign policy toward Latin American countries after World War II until the revolution in Cuba. The second part examines the US attitude towards the Cuban Revolution and the third part examines the US attitude towards the Sandinista Revolution. I then bring all the information together in the conclusion of the thesis and find that the Cuban Revolution had a significant impact on U.S. foreign policy in relation to the revolution in Nicaragua, as the fear of a repeat of the Cuban scenario forced the U.S. to become more actively involved in Nicaragua than during the Cuban Revolution.
