International Investment Agreements and European Union Law
Fecák, Tomáš
The relationship between international investment agreements and EU law have attracted a lot of attention in past few years. The aim of this thesis is to bring a detailed analysis of various aspects of this complicated relationship. In attainment of this aim it proceeds in following steps. After a short introduction (Chapter I.), Chapter II. contains a brief overview of typical content of bilateral investment treaties as well as a more detailed analysis of relevant EU law rules concerning foreign investment, enabling subsequent comparison of both sets of rules. Chapter III. deals with investment agreements to be concluded by the EU, in particular with questions of external competence for foreign investment, responsibility for breaches of investment agreements concluded by the EU and the future shape of EU investment policy. The status of existing bilateral investment treaties concluded between EU member states and third countries is analyzed in Chapter IV. Chapter V. tackles various issues related to investment treaties concluded between member states (so called intra-EU BITs).
Platform governance triangle: The case of the EU Regulation on preventing the dissemination of illegal terrorist content online
Miksová, Karolína ; Aslan, Emil (advisor) ; Rosendorf, Ondřej (referee)
The thesis focuses on the relationship between the European Union and platform companies, and it tries to explore a debate about binding regulations regarding the moderation of illegal content online. The Regulation on preventing the dissemination of illegal terrorist content online from 2018 was applied as the case to test the arguments. The thesis applies the concept of platform governance triangle to analyse whether the Regulation has the potential to be effective. The research argues that the effectiveness of the Regulation depends on the actors competencies, the legitimation of the Regulation and how it was contested during the decision-making process, and finally on the power relations between actors and the tools to monitor and enforce the Regulation. The research shows that the EU has extensive competencies in areas of independence, representativeness and expertise due to the work of EU specialised agencies. Platform companies, on the other hand, possess unique technical competencies to moderate terrorist content online. Furthermore the specific design of the Regulation, and the fact that it was designed under the ordinary legislative procedure and was contested by various actors, suggest the Regulation is legitimate. Finally, the monitoring and enforcement tools in terms of sanctions could...
Different Social and Economic Strategies Taken in Spring 2020 in Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic and Their Medium-term Economic Consequences across the EU Countries
Stuchlík, Jan ; Pertold-Gebicka, Barbara (advisor) ; Pintera, Jan (referee)
This thesis describes measures taken by the EU countries during spring 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and explains the effects of these measures on unemployment and economic growth using panel data regression analysis. We compare different approaches of the countries. Most of the restrictions caused unemployment to increase and economic growth to decrease. The effects on unemployment were often delayed for up to three months. Bans on in- door events, stay-at-home recommendations and closures of non-essential shops had the largest negative effects on employment in the EU. Closures of primary schools, closures of accommodation facilities and bans on indoor events had the biggest negative effects on GDP growth. The changes in economic growth were not directly proportional to the number of people infected by COVID-19. Countries that imposed wide restrictions were not proven to suffer from larger economic losses than countries introducing less strict interventions. 1
The influence of the Visegrad Group on the negotiations on the MFF 2014-2020 and 2021-2027
Němcová, Ivanna ; Handl, Vladimír (advisor) ; Vykoukal, Jiří (referee)
The fundamental idea of the coexistence of the contemporary central European states within one geopolitical space has its beginning in the 14th century when the monarchs of Bohemia, Poland and Hungary found and articulated a common interest in cooperation in defence against Habsburg's power expansion. The formalised form of cooperation was later implemented within the Austrian and subsequently Austro-Hungarian monarchy. Austria's dominant role ended in 1918 with the breakdown of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, as one of the results of the first world war. The current Visegrad Group was created as a need to respond to the new challenges that these countries had to face in the new geopolitical order of Europe. In pursuing a realistic policy, the Visegrad group can become a significant force not only within the EU, capable of defending the economic, military, and political interests of its members. The promotion of the economic and national interests of the individual members of the Visegrad Group can be enhanced by mutual cooperation within the European Union, especially during negotiations of the long-term budgets of the European Union. The long-term budget of the European Union (Multiannual Financial Framework) is the fundamental document of the EU, which determines its long-term priorities and...
