Sylabus -
Poslední úprava: Mgr. Martin Riegl, Ph.D. (11.02.2016)

The course will start with the creation of the system of nation-states, the description of the ambitions of the great European powers, and the collapse of multi-national empires. The course will continue with the political problems of inter-state relationships, border disputes and minorities questions as one of the biggest problems of European politics in the 20th Century. The other important topic will be the errection and fall of the Iron Curtain in Europe, and the ways in which the new political geography of Eastern Europe was formed. Special attention will be given to the geography of the Balcan crisis of the 1990´s. The last sessions will be about changes caused by the crisis of nation-states: problems of regionalism and the decentralisation of political powers, as well as reintegrations processes within the EU(e. g. migration and the creation of ?new? minorities).
