ČZP v roce 2016: Analýza ÚMV
Jak se vyrovnala česká zahraniční politika s rozvířeným zahraničním prostředím, které bylo charakteristické pro rok 2016? Jací aktéři a jakým způsobem vstoupili do formulace české zahraniční politiky? Jak lze zpětně hodnotit nové impulzy, které vláda Bohuslava Sobotky vnesla do své zahraniční politiky? Počínala si Česká republika aktivně, pasivně, konfliktně či kooperačně? Nebo byla jen černým pasažérem ve vleku jiných zemí? Kolektiv autorů ÚMV a dalších spolupracujících institucí poskytuje odpovědi na tyto a mnoho dalších otázek v desáté pravidelné monografické analýze české zahraniční politiky, kterou ÚMV zpracovává již od roku 2007.

The Social Construction of Slovakia as a Donor and its Power Effects
New article by Tomáš Profant in Europe-Asia Studies (journal with impact factor) shows the power effects of Slovak development cooperation discourses. It focuses on how the Slovak population is constructed as ‘willing to help’, and the effects of this construction on the legitimation of the current regime and on the construction of the Slovak identity as developed. The article further shows the unequal relationship between ‘old’ and ‘new’ donors, how transition experience enables this relationship, and the power effects of the discourse of donor effectiveness in Slovakia.
