CU Open Letter to Michael Ignatieff, President and Rector CEU

In Prague on March 31, 2017

Dear President and Rector Michael Ignatieff,

It is my honor to mediate hereby the reaction of Charles University in support of your cause. At its meeting on March 31, 2017, the Academic Senate of Charles University accepted the following resolution:

“The Academic Senate of Charles University acknowledges that free and independent universities play a principle and indispensable role in preserving and developing a free and democratic society. We therefore perceive as negative the efforts of the Hungarian Government, which might complicate the functioning of foreign higher-education institutions including the Central European University.”

Allow me also to inform you that His Magnificence, Rector of Charles University, Prof. Tomáš Zima fully supports the aforementioned resolution.

We hereby express our hope that our stand will help your cause.

With best wishes,

PhDr. Tomáš Nigrin, Ph.D.

Chair, Academic Senate of Charles University
