The Role of Constitutional Organs in Ensuring the State Security
Dienstbier, Jakub ; Jirásková, Věra (referee)
1 The Role of Constitutional Organs in Ensuring the State Security Abstract This diploma thesis deals with question, what role are constitutional organs, such as President of the Republic, Government, Parliament and Security Council of the State, playing in the security system of the Czech Republic. For this purpose, the thesis shows the constitutional system of the Czech Republic on the example of position of President of the Republic.

The effect of climate change on the effect of state security: An analysis of Burkina Faso and Djibouti
Alexandru, Luca ; Riegl, Martin (advisor) ; Doboš, Bohumil (referee)
This thesis examines the extent to which climate change is able to affect the security of states, with Burkina Faso and the Republic of Djibouti chosen as the case studies for this investigation. While the general effects of climate change on security are understood, the academic community appears to disagree on the subject of conflict-generation via climactic pressures. Consequently, the analysis is divided into two sections: The first part utilizes over 2,000 individual events collected by the Armed Conflict and Event Data program and examines the relationship between climate change and their occurrence. This is done firstly through a preliminary keyword analysis, then through a multivariate regression analysis of the relevant climate change factors. The second part takes a pseudo-qualitative approach by merging the Fragile State Index methodology and a weighted systems model in order to calculate values for each relevant state dimension that has been affected, thereby numerically quantifying the effect. The results indicate that currently, weak to moderate negative effects may be observed on the two states, depending on the security dimension examined. The economic and sociodemographic aspects appear to be most susceptible to environmental pressures.

The Media Image of State Security in the Rudé právo and Svobodné slovo dailies (November 1989 - June 1990)
Vávra, Martin ; Železný, Jakub (advisor) ; Růžička, Daniel (referee)
The bachelor's thesis titled "The Media Image of State Security in the Rudé právo and Svobodné slovo dailies (November 1989-June 1990)" discusses the media's image of the State Security Organisation (StB) over a period of several months following the events of the 17th of November 1989, when the communist regime in Czechoslovakia fell. The dailies analysed for this study were Rudé právo and Svobodné slovo. The periodicals were selected according to their political orientations. Rudé právo, described as "a paper published by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia", was a daily that officially represented the governing regime. Svobodné slovo, which began publishing the first uncensored information in November 1989 and called the "primary daily" of the Velvet Revolution, was selected as its opposite counterpart. This work has four chapters. The first chapter examines the State Security Organisation and its history, organisational structure, methods and manner of work in 1989. The second chapter presents the selected dailies Rudé právo and Svobodné slovo. The third chapter discusses the methodology of the entire work, and the final chapter contains research on the selected dailies in the form of a quantitative content analysis.

Muczková, Michaela ; Mlejnek, Josef (advisor) ; Halamka, Tomáš (referee)
The bachelor thesis called The Číhošť Miracle as a Theme and a Tool of Communist Propaganda deals with the usage of propaganda in the campaign against so called miracle in Číhošť which was led in the 50s of the 20th century by the Communist Party of the Czechoslovakia. In the first part this thesis presents the theoretical basic for the analysis carried out in the research part. There is introduced the theory of totalitarianism which is essential to capture the mood at that time and the conditions in the Czechoslovakian society, and subsequently the theory of propaganda as the instrument inherently connected with the totalitarian regimes. To the perfect illustration this thesis later proposes the concrete context of the 50s in the Czechoslovakia where the key element was the rise of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia to the power and its relationship with the Catholic Church. The Číhošť Miracle itself is analyzed separately where there is chiefly introduced its process as well as its consequences for the Parson Josef Toufar and the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia. The second part is practical and based on the methodological inclusion and the presented theory there is an ongoing analysis of the historical sources.

Image of the enemy in the discourse of security forces
Jeřábková, Darina ; Vávra, Martin (advisor) ; Cviklová, Lucie (referee)
The "internal enemy" was a formal term heavily represented in the language of the State Security (a secret service of the Czechoslovak Republic and Czechoslovak Socialist Republic), denoting a specified category of opponents to the then regime. The State Security's task was to protect the socialist and social system by fighting the external and internal enemies, with the security forces having been the authorities deciding who met the criteria. The thesis entitled "The Internal Enemy Image in the Discourse of Security Forces" aims to find out how the discourse of the State Security defined the term "internal enemy". The thesis is divided into the theoretical and empirical parts. The empirical part applies the qualitative analysis of the discourse to search for the characteristic of the term "internal enemy". All of the texts analysed in the thesis come from the Security Services Archive, administering relevant files of the era, and date back to the 1950s-1980s.

I decided to describe in this bachelor thesis primarily his life during Spanish civil war (1936-1939) and following second Word War. He participated actively in both wars. In case of Spanish civil war due to my academic program, I described too separate chapter about departures of volunteers from Czechoslovakia from perspective of state administration. The other chapter described formativ and organization of military units, in which Czechoslovak volunteers served and fought. This part of his life has not been explained so far. In spite of this fact I of course described too the following years of his life. I tried to explain functioning of political processes in Czechoslovakia. The final result of my work is attempt to describe his inconsistent life. I worked on it in the spirit of pozitivist historiography without any cliches. Primary source of my information in my thesis were...
