Cíle předmětu
The course aims to explore traditional and contemporary security challenges in the wider region of the Eastern Mediterranean. Besides providing a theoretical framework, the course offers to study the basic geopolitical dynamics of the whole region, selects security-related processes and analyze them from a regional, (Central) European and global perspectives. The theme itself define the challenges that the course needs to review: beyond traditional military and terrorist threats, risks of migration, hydrocarbon discoveries and geopolitical antagonism also needs to be discussed. Although the first and the last part of the programme seek to understand the region as a whole, the course cannot discuss every major issue in detail. Thus, the lectures will rather explore selected themes from the region's security environment: it examines tensions over Macedonia, analyzes aspects of the Aegean dispute and summarizes recent developments of the Cyprus conflict.
