The new head of the Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes Pavla Foglarova has presented the supervisory board with a list of candidates for the institutes’ academic board after its former members resigned en masse in protest over the sacking of the institute’s former head Daniel Herman. The new academic board should have 12 members and the proposed candidates include the former politician and historian Petr Pithart, historian Vilem Precan, the present director of the Institute of Modern History Oldrich Tuma and number of foreign experts including the French historian Muriel Blaive, who currently resides in Vienna, and the Danish historian Peter Bugge, an expert on Bohemian studies. The institute has recently undergone far-reaching personnel changes and relations within remain tense.
