The Lidice Case and Memory Politics in the Czech Republic
Antonyová, Veronika ; Kubátová, Hana (advisor) ; Kalhousová, Irena (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the issue of mobilization of political memory connected with the degree of collaboration in the Czechia with Nazi Germany. I put the whole case in the broader context of dealing with the Holocaust in post-communist countries. I analyzed the process and consequences of the mobilization of political memory on the specific case of the Lidice. I examined in more detail the concrete effects of a wrong and inaccurate alignment with the historical past on the current political scene and the public in the Czech Republic. Keywords political memory, mobilization of political memory, holocaust, collaboration, Lidice, europeanisation
Czech(oslovak)-Israeli Relations from 1945 till today
Kupková, Kristýna ; Kalhousová, Irena (advisor) ; Konrád, Ota (referee)
The presented bachelor thesis deals with the changes in diplomatic approaches between the Czechoslovak or Czech Republic and the State of Israel. The thesis examines the period since the end of World War II in 1945 up to the present i.e., the first twenty years of the 21st century. The work is divided into five chapters, which correspond to the various time periods of mutual relations. The aim of this work is to examine five different time periods and capture their characteristic phenomena and influences in order to determine which factors were or are most active in the Czecho(slovak)-Israeli relationship, and whether they had changed throughout history or even are still altering. The thesis presents both international and national influences and therefore focuses on the international political position of Czechoslovakia or the Czech Republic in the global order, as well as on the formation of internal politics and the position of the social organization. The thesis uses the methods of case studies, analysis of secondary sources and comparisons, through which in the summary of the thesis it detects changes in the given five periods.
Development of Israeli Strategic Culture: Case of Abraham Accords
Kovanda, Damián ; Kalhousová, Irena (advisor) ; Weinfurter, Jaroslav (referee)
Since its inception, the State of Israel has faced countless existential threats it was forced to deal with. Through the frequency of these security threats and through the necessity to address them, the Strategic culture of Israel was formed in the last seventy years. The concept of Strategic culture represents a context and identity of a state in the accommodation of strategic goals and in the formulation of ways how to achieve these goals. Through Strategic culture, state political leaders were imprinted with verified patterns of behavior in formulations of national security strategies. Political leaders are therefore understood as carriers of Strategic culture and labeled as Strategic agents. The strategies of the highest order are often regarded as "Grand Strategies", which focus on the most basic and the most essential strategic goals of a state. In the essence, Grand Strategy is a sophisticated set of precisely defined strategic goals and means, but also a set of defined ways how to best utilize disposable means to achieve preset goals. In this diploma thesis, I shall attempt to approach Strategic culture as a core component of Grand Strategy. I shall look at Strategic culture as a context, though which Grand Strategies can be explained and justified. My research will focus on the mechanisms...
Israel's current security challenges in the context of the securitization of the Iranian threat
Skála, Jáchym ; Kalhousová, Irena (advisor) ; Daniel, Jan (referee)
This thesis examines the process of securitization in the relationship between Israel and Iran during Benjamin Netanyahu's second term as Israeli Prime Minister, specifically the period between taking office in 2009 and the conclusion of the nuclear deal with Iran in 2015. The aim of the paper is to analyse the process by which Netanyahu has made Iran such a major security threat that the whole world should be concerned about it. The thesis examines the international dimension of this issue, that is, Netanyahu's speeches that were targeted at an international audience, in some cases especially at an American one, since the United States has been Israel's closest ally since the creation of the State of Israel. The thesis is divided into a theoretical part, which focuses mainly on the theory of securitization, on which the entire work is based, and an empirical part, i.e. the actual analysis of the speeches transcribed into textual form. The greatest emphasis in this analysis is placed on the linguistic devices used, the choice of words and the setting of facts, events or actions in the context chosen by Netanyahu. The analysis of these speeches is intended to reveal the way in which Netanyahu wanted to make Iran a literal existential threat not only to Israel, but ultimately to the whole world,...
Antisemitism as a political topic in Hungary: Fidesz and Jobbik
Suchá, Kristýna ; Kalhousová, Irena (advisor) ; Kubátová, Hana (referee)
This thesis deals with the role of anti-Semitism in current Hungarian politics with the emphasis on two actors: political parties Fidesz and Jobbik. The role of anti-Semitism is examined through three categories. The first category deals with the political relevance of the party and the voter's typology. The second category touches upon the two historical milestones still influencing the Hungarian politics and the form of anti-Semitism in it. The milestones are the Treaty of Trianon and Horthy's era. The third and final category deals with the concept on the new anti-Semitism and actors' approaches to the State of Israel. The metodology of the thesis is based on the way it defines anti-Semitism. The thesis uses the IHRA definition which Hungary adopted in 2019. The IHRA definition, however, has its limits and shortcomings which are mentioned in the thesis. The thesis provides a complex assessment of the form and the role of anti-Semitism in current Hungarian politics. Historical actualities such as the Treaty of Trianon or Horthy's era as well as relatively new phenomena (for example the infamous anti-Soros campaign) are taken into consideration.
Road to Camp David and beyond: Ripeness and Third-party Mediation of the Israeli-Egyptian Conflict
Nemčovská, Ľubomíra ; Kalhousová, Irena (advisor) ; Soukup, Jaromír (referee)
This thesis analyses the conflict resolution process between Israel and Egypt and provides a new angle for explaining the signing of the first Arab-Israeli peace treaty. Author uses a case study research method that facilitates an in-depth analysis of the topic and answers to three selected research questions: Why did long-lasting hostile countries engage in the negotiations to resolve their conflict?, How did Jimmy Carter mediate the Camp David Summit? and What persuaded Israel and Egypt to finalize the peace treaty?. The thesis is divided into two main analytical parts, according to the theoretical model used for its examination of the research questions. The first part makes use of William I. Zartman's theory of ripeness and its concept of a "mutually hurting stalemate" to explain why two opposing parties might become gradually open towards finding a "way out" from their protracted conflict. By analysing these conditions to reach a "ripe moment", the third-party may produce substantial proposals to resolve their dispute. The second part of this thesis focuses on the mediation process of the U.S. President Jimmy Carter between September 1978 and March 1979. The umbrella theory of third-party mediation is employed to elucidate the mediation strategies, potential biases and leverage of Jimmy...
