Current diversification scenarios of the Russian Federation on one side and the V4 countries on the other with respect to the interdependence theory
Záhradníková, Lea ; Holubcová, Jitka (advisor) ; Kučerová, Irah (referee)
The thesis focuses on current diversification scenarios in the field of gas supply the Visegrad Group (V4) and the Russian Federation relying on the model of asymmetrical interdependence. Russian Federation, the main supplier of natural gas to this region, has lost its status of a reliable partner due to the gas wars with Ukraine in 2006 and 2009, which have negatively affected the supply of natural gas to the EU countries. The research focuses on the current diversification options of V4 countries related to their suppliers and supply routes with respect to their relationship with the Russian Federation; the diversification options for the purchasing markets of the Russian Federation are also analyzed. The author validates the hypothesis that energy relations among the Visegrad countries and the Russian Federation in the field of gas supply are largely controlled by the asymmetric interdependence that is currently exacerbating tensions among the set actors. Current diversification scenarios are presented and evaluated, with the aim of assessing the importance of the projects with regard to actors' energy security. Keywords: interdependence, energy security, diversification, gas supply, gas interconnector, V4, Energy Union, Russian Federation, Nord Stream II, LNG

The integration of Muslim immigrants into French and German society with emphasis on the period 2005/2006-2011
Záhradníková, Lea ; Filipová, Lucie (advisor) ; Dimitrov, Michal (referee)
The thesis compares the measures of integration policies of Nicolas Sarkozy and Angela Merkel in the period 2005/2006-2011. Main attention is paid to Muslim immigrants and their immigration to France and Germany and especially their integration to these societes. The work confirms the hypothesis that the French integration policy during the presidency of Nicolas Sarkozy showed more restrictive elements than the German one in the period of the governments of Chancellor Angela Merkel. This thesis is further examining similar and different features of the integration policies of these two actors.
Shale Extraction in the U.S. from the 1970s to the Turn of the Millennium: The Path to Energy Independence?
Záhradníková, Lea ; Johnson, Zdenka (advisor) ; Szobi, Pavel (referee)
Master's s thesis determines potential influence of "shale miracle" observed in the U.S. since the first decade of new millennium on energy independence which has been one of the U.S. policy priorities since the 1970s' oil shocks. Technological development and innovations supported by the government triggered an unexpected and in its way unique boom, which significantly strengthened the U.S. economy. The thesis examines impact of oil crises on the U.S. energy policy, history of unconventional gas and oil extraction, and the federal involvement in energy R&D programs. Energy independence is analyzed in terms of three fundamental pillars (reducing the amount of imported oil, reducing the energy intensity of economy and increasing energy self-sufficiency). All of the models, schemes and calculations cover a period of 1973-2013. Two indicators -- improving self-sufficiency and decreasing energy intensity of the economy -- speak in favor of achievable energy independence. However, deficient energy balance suggests otherwise. In case the need to fill the gap between energy production and consumption by foreign oil imports (which have been at their historically highest values since the 1990s) remains, then a complete energy independence as well as security is just an illusion.
The social impacts of the Czechoslovak monetary reform of 1953
Záhradníková, Lea ; Szobi, Pavel (advisor) ; Chalupecký, Petr (referee)
Bachelor thesis discusses the social impact of monetary reform conducted in 1953 in Czechoslovakia and is devoted primarily to the impact on the working class, which was a support base for the communist regime. The thesis is divided into four parts. The first part describes the social and economic background before the monetary reform, the second chapter is devoted to the causes of the reform process itself and includes the analysis of social impacts, which are examined through a change in the standard of living of the whole population. The third chapter focuses on selected part of society -the working class, the conditions of their life and changes in living standard of workers' families after conducting the reform. The chapter also contains an analysis of wage and price changes of the population, which demonstrates one of the most negative aspects of the reform. The last part focuses on the years after the reform with its ongoing influence.
