Islam in the service of politics, politics in the service of Islam
Matysová, Barbora ; Černý, Karel (advisor) ; Suša, Oleg (referee)
The objective is a theoretical analysis of mixing politics and religion in Islam, a description of the functions of political and religious institution in Islamic society, and comparison with the Occidental concept of the relationship of religion (extension of the Church) and politics. The reality is mediated by the media quite often through the confusion of terms (such as Islam and Islamism, Islamist or Muslim and Arab and Islamic world) misinterpreted. Very easy it is based on generalization and inappropriate metaphor to create an unfavorable opinion about the culture and the people with whom the author did not even have personal experience. In this thesis should be separated by "West" view of the Islamic religion and politics and perceptions of the Islamic religion and politics through the lens. Part of the thesis is devoted to comparing the performance and Iran and Turkey in relation to the topic, i.e. how these two countries have religion and politics and what is between these two components of the relationship. The issue is the compatibility of Islam with democratic type of society and intercultural dialogue between the "Occident" and Islam.

Regional Differentiation of Swahili Identity - Case Study of Vanga and Ushongo
Mbezi, Barbora ; Havlíček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Frajer, Václav (referee)
This thesis deals with the formation of the Swahili identity within two countries: Kenya and Tanzania. The Swahili people have inhabited the East African coast since the first millennium, utilizing local resources to trade and to create their sophisticated social position. The philosophy of Islam had a considerable influence on the development of the Swahili culture. These traditional elements typical for the Swahili culture were significantly restricted by the period of colonialism, where newly formed boundaries divided this ethnic group. The situation on both sides of the border is analysed through quantitative and qualitative research, which offers a complex view on the issue. The results show that selected cities are very similar with only small differences - often related to the closeness or openness of the village towards increasing tourism. In general the established boundaries play almost no role in shaping the Swahili identity. The Swahili people retain their traditional position within the East African coast, although their relations with other countries are less pronounced as the distance between them increases.
