HINIC, Danilo. Čína ako rastúca veľmoc a jej pozícia na začiatku 21. Storočia. [Bakalárska práca]. Univerzita Komenského v Bratislave. Fakulta sociálnych a ekonomických vied; Ústav európskych štúdií a medzinárodných vzťahov. Školiteľ: Mgr. Matúš Halás, PhD. Stupeň odbornej kvalifikácie: Bakalár. Bratislava: FSEV UK, 2014. 62 s.
Cieľom tejto práce je preukázať ako je ekonomický rast Číny reflektovaný v jej ekonomickej a vojenskej sile v určitých častiach sveta prostredníctvom realistickej teórie medzinárodných vzťahov. V prvej kapitole charakterizujeme teoretický koncept ekonomickej a vojenskej sily založený na realistickej interpretácii sily. Druhá kapitola sa zaoberá operacionalizáciou výskumnej otázky a cieľom tejto práce. Zdôvodníme prečo je Čína vhodným príkladom ako je rast ekonomiky reflektovaný v ekonomickej a vojenskej sile v zahraničí, taktiež prečo Afrika a Juhovýchodná Ázia sú vhodným príkladom na ilustráciu Čínskej ekonomickej a vojenskej sily v určitých častiach sveta. V tretej kapitole najskôr ilustrujeme rast ekonomickej sily Číny prostredníctvom HDP. Následne preukážeme ako je tento ekonomický rast reflektovaný v prudkom náraste priamych čínskych investícií v Afrike, čo bude indikátorom ekonomickej sily Číny v Afrike. V závere tretej kapitoly bude ilustrovaná zvyšujúca sa vojenská účasť Číny a viac pevných politík v Juhovýchodnej ázii na začiatku 21. storočia. Predpokladáme, že takýto koncept tretej kapitoly splní cieľ tejto práce a ukáže ako je ekonomický rast Číny reflektovaný v jej ekonomickej a vojenskej sile v určitých častiach sveta.
Kľúčové slová: Čína, ekonomický rast, Afrika, zahraničné investície, Juhovýchodná Ázia, vojenská účasť

Preface
I have been interested in China for many years. I even lived there for some period of my life. I am interested in Chinese culture, philosophy, traditions, tai chi, language and politics.
In recent years my attention is focused on rising power of China. China is becoming very important actor in international relations. Its power is visible in political, economic and military aspects. Position of China in the world is much stronger than before in economic, political and military aspect. It has permanent seat in Security Council of the United Nations. It is world second largest economy which is important for and competitive with other world economies. China possesses one of strongest world militaries and has second biggest military budget in the world. Economic and military presence of China in the world was increased thanks to rise of Chinese domestic economy. Since 1978 Chinese domestic economy is rapidly developing and together with rapid development of domestic economy its economic and military presence abroad is increasing too. I noticed rise of importance of China and I wanted to make some work which will deal with Chinese economic and military power.
After classes of international relations at our faculty I became inspired to more deeply analyze realist theory of international relations. Actually this theory seems to me as really realistic because almost everything what is happening in the world today is very similar to that what this theory claims. Therefore I wanted to make interesting for me combination of dealing with power of China in terms of realist interpretation of power. I believe that such combination of realist interpretation of power and rising power of China would mean great opportunity to apply some theory which I have learned at our faculty.
