The aim of the course is to understand a phenomenon of ethnic conflict, and to look at specific features of particular ethnic tensions and conflicts in the region of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), including the Czech Republic. Theories explaining the roots and mechanisms of ethnic conflicts with regard to causes specific for conflicts in CEE will be studied. We will focus also on a conflict prevention and long-term management. In this respect, contemporary academic theories (mainly multiculturalism) will be discussed. In order to explain clearly the theoretical part of the course, different conflicts in the region (e.g. Baltic States, Crimea, and Roma issue) will be presented as cases. The cases were not selected according to the scope of violence but according to their political relevance.
