The biggest change in the movement in 2019 was the radicalization of some of its groups and their actions. Persistent political problems and the frustration of some participants, who believed that nonviolent means were ineffective, were identified as the main causes of radicalization. The movement's radicalization and change in tactics was also a response to repression by the Hong Kong government and police. The leadership of the movement also underwent a change.

The main reason for the non-existence of leaders in the 2019 movement was the fact that the leadership of the 2014 movement was prosecuted after its ending.

Emissions trading system - European Union and China
Krutek, Lukáš ; Fabšíková, Tereza (advisor) ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
Emissions trading system - European Union and China Abstract Emissions trading systems are one of the many instruments used in environmental protection policy. This market-based economic mechanism governs the trading of units of selected pollutants, which are for these purposes considered as a tradable commodity. This approach was pioneered by the European Union, whose emissions trading system has over the years become the largest and most successful emissions trading system in the world. The results achieved, but also the experience from the failures of the European system, have attracted international attention and inspired other countries to actively use emissions trading. So far, the People's Republic of China is the latest major subject working to implement a new emissions trading system. The choice of the path towards the establishment of a national emissions trading system demonstrates a desire to become a leading actor in global climate policy and to move towards achieving its goals in line with its obligations under international law, including the ambitious goal of peaking carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 in its rapidly developing economy. This master's thesis introduces and highlights for the reader the basic structural elements common to all emissions trading systems and further details the...
Beyond authoritarianism: AI-based surveillance systems for social and security management. The Chinese Social Credit System
Baldin, Beatrice ; Střítecký, Vít (advisor) ; Špelda, Petr (referee)
(English) The Social Credit System (SCS) is an innovative Chinese social management plan, that has caught worldwide attention. This system is designed for promoting social and financial stability, through the allocation of a credit score to citizens and corporations. This score is estimated through the employment of sophisticated surveillance technologies that collect and analyze huge data flows. The higher the score rating a company reaches, the higher its reward and trustworthiness are. Hence, the SCS rates individuals and businesses, while providing feedback by rewarding good behavior or by punishing violations. This incentive structure and the deployment of the latest monitoring technologies have both contributed to the mainstream misconception that the SCS is a functioning all-embracing dystopian techno-authoritarian system, strictly imposed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Conversely, this thesis explores how the actual implementations of the SCS are split into two separate categories of pilot testings: one developed by local authorities and one promoted by commercial big corporations. Moreover, the SCS is currently further constrained by technical limitations since there is no nationwide coherent system for credit ratings and it is still highly based on human operations. In addition,...
Linking China's hegemonic intentions through its institutions in Southeast Asia
Ambekar, Sankalp ; Karásek, Tomáš (advisor) ; Bejkovský, Jan (referee)
Asia's Machtpolitik Linking China's hegemonic intentions through its institutions in Southeast Asia Sankalp Ambekar Abstract Since pre-colonial times, the major powers in the region contesting and vying to influence Southeast Asia and South China Seas. However, in modern times things did not change much, though China came out as a revisionist and status quo power. And Chinese-led multilateral institutions are the new provider in this business. It rapidly became a first choice and alternative option to West-led institutions with long-term expertise in DFI. Moreover, certain ASEAN states are divided politically and economically, not having a unified stance on how they should approach China's behaviour. Although China's encroachment over the South China Sea and issue with Taiwan became severe concerns over the region's stability. Hence, China is an element of passive-aggressive and hegemonic intentions in its behaviour. But it is difficult to predict how it will shape the future of the region and Asia, as the region's dynamics change rapidly. Thus, a link with grave ambtions connects to China's behaviour. Keywords: China; free trade agreement (FTA); hegemony; multilateralism; maritime trade; regional powers; Southeast Asia; South China Sea; trade blocs
