Multilevel governance in environmental policy: a comparative analysis of Republic of Austria and the Federal Republic of Germany
Čuprová, Barbora ; Romancov, Michael (advisor) ; Tesař, Jakub (referee)
The aim of the thesis is to analyse the nature of multi-level governance in climate protection policy in Germany and Austria and to compare the analysed cases. The concept of multilevel governance is used as the theoretical basis of the thesis, the key idea of which is the mutual integration and influence of the levels of governance. Using this concept, the thesis analyses the horizontal and vertical levels of policy making and implementation involving both state and non-state actors. The analysis is carried out through four features of multilevel governance, predefined on the basis of an analysis of the literature, which are: diffusion of competences, non-hierarchical institutional framework, consensus-based decision-making and the principle of partnership. These features are also the dimensions on the basis of which the selected cases are compared. The multi-level governance in the climate protection policy of Germany and Austria is then classified on the basis of the typology of Liesbet Hooghe and Gary Marks. The thesis also includes an analysis of the instruments and policy processes of climate policy in both countries, which will provide insight into the role and influence of the different levels of governance in the formation of policy in the analysed area of governance.
Expulsion of the German population from the area of Czech Canada in the years 1945-1952
This bachelor thesis elaborates on the topic of the transfer of the German population in the period 1945-1952 from the area of Czech Canada in the South Bohemian Region. The work monitors not only the changes in the demographic structure of the population, but also the issue of extinct municipalities due to the construction of the border zone. In addition to the historical context, the transformation of Czech Canada as a physical-geographical area is also monitored here. Last but not least, the author analyzes Czech-German-Austrian relations as an important aspect in current foreign and economic policy.

The aim of this bachelor's thesis is to attempt to formulate the same and different qualities of the expressionist work of Emil Filla and Oskar Kokoschka. The work tries to map and describe these paintings, but the main emphasis is on the starting points of this artistic direction. In addition, it will be necessary to define the general definition of expressionism and its development in the context of Central Europe.
Post-Horseshoe Theory: Commonalities and Interactions between the European far right and Islamism
Langmoen, Sindre Mathias Byrgiel ; Laryš, Martin (advisor) ; Aslan, Emil (referee)
The Turkish and Russian diasporas residing in the West have both been the subject of suspicions and fears, been framed as extremists or as foreign agents. Such accusations are vastly overstated but are rooted in elements of truth. The purpose of the present research is to analyse Russian and Turkish diasporas in Germany, establish to what extent, how and why they are the targets of instrumentalisation by Russian and Turkish governments, and compare the Russian and Turkish cases in terms of nature, scope, and outcome. Using the principal-agent model for theorizing the delegation of authority, government-diaspora relations are examined in terms of diaspora policies, laws and institutions; political activities, attitudes and extremism; criminal networks, intelligence activities and extraterritorial repression. The analysis showed significant differences between the two cases. Turkey has established a great network of loyal institutions and movements in the diaspora, which socializes diaspora members into nationalist Turkish pro-AKP ideology and instrumentalises them into protesting, lobbying, voting, or into repressing political opponents. Russia has a weaker network and exerts less influence on its diaspora, but has still achieved success in instrumentalising diaspora communities for the sake of...
Solidarity Surcharge in Germany
Le, Le Phuong ; Nigrin, Tomáš (advisor) ; Šmidrkal, Václav (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on the solidarity surcharge in Germany. The surcharge was first introduced in 1991 in order to finance the costs of the German reunification and to bridge the gap between states of western and eastern Germany. The surcharge was originally intended to be temporary for one year only, however, due to higher fiscal costs the solidarity surcharge was reintroduced in 1995. It was compulsory for all taxpayers until the end of 2020. The aim of this bachelor thesis is to explain why the solidarity surcharge was abolished right at the beginning of 2021. To answer this question, two initial hypotheses have been defined. First, the states of eastern Germany have reached the same economic level as the western ones. In this part of the research, the thesis discusses mainly the financial strength of the states, which is demonstrated by the example of the equalisation payments. Second, the national economic situation of the Federal Republic of Germany made it possible to abolish the solidarity surcharge without negatively affecting public finances. To verify this theory, the German state budgets are examined and then confronted with the revenue from the solidarity surcharge. Furthermore, the thesis also covers the public debate on the introduction and subsequent abolition of the...

Šoukalová, Lucie ; Koudelková, Petra (advisor) ; Ježková, Tereza (referee)

The research works with the above-mentioned selected markets and analyzes characteristic campaigns that foreign representations of the CzechTourism...
Comparative analysis of the attitudes of selected European parties on the topic of sexual minorities
Gothard, Jan ; Stauber, Jakub (advisor) ; Novotný, Jaroslav (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on the study of the approach of political parties in selected countries to the topics of sexual minorities. The work deals with the analysis of election programs, in which the researcher focused on points affecting sexual minorities. The thesis uses three theories of the theoretical framework within the theoretical concepts, which are the division of the political spectrum on the left and right by Norbert Bobbio, as well as the Theory of Cultural Revenge and the Theory of Postmaterialism. The following methodological chapter introduces the methods of data acquisition and the method of working with them. Furthermore, a comparative analysis is presented. The empirical part includes a brief description of the history of the development of conditions, rights and opportunities for sexual minorities in four selected countries. In the fourth, research chapter, there is a comparative analysis, comparing the approaches in the states and on the basis of their ideological boundaries, as well as the development of their approaches over time. To obtain data for comparison, data reduction was used in the content analysis of the parties' programs. The team answers research questions that have been formulated based on hypotheses and initial assumptions to address the ideology aspect of...
Greta Thunberg, Fridays for Future and the German climate policy
Ondrušíková, Karolína ; Nigrin, Tomáš (advisor) ; Kochnowski, Roman (referee)
The master thesis deals with the potential influence of Greta Thunberg and Fridays for Future on the development of discussions in the German Bundestag in 2018-2021. In August 2018, Greta Thunberg started protesting in front of the Swedish Parliament against the violation of the Paris Agreement. That was adopted at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in 2015 by all parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, committing them to take significant action to keep global warming below 1.5 řC. Other protesters began to join Greta, and already in September 2018, the international student movement Fridays for Future was established, organizing a climate strike every Friday. Through the analysis of the protocols from the sessions of German Bundestag, the thesis aims to find out how the person of Greta Thunberg, together with the protests of the Fridays for Future movement, was reflected in the German Bundestag during the global climate strikes. Among other things, the thesis aims to answer the question of whether and, if applicable, how the form of discussions on this topic changed between 2018-2021, and whether the activities of Greta Thunberg and the Fridays for Future had an impact on the development and importance of climate policy in Germany. The thesis is based on the hypothesis...
