Support letter of Institute for Latin American Studies / School of Business & Economics Freie Universität Berlin

Dear Prof. László Lovász,

With high concern I was informed that due to new funding rules, the academic freedom of the Hungarian Academy of Scienes is in question.

I sincerely ask you in your function as President of this eminent institution to guarantee rules and procedures which allow for academic freedom and a selection of scientist of highest quality, independently of their political orientations and affiliations, and of the topics they elaborate on.

Sincerely.

Barbara Fritz
