Chomsky to Vucic: Enable IFDT to choose unbiased, competent Board Izvor: AFP/HEULER ANDREY

Avram Noam Chomsky, the best known living intellectual, asked Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic in a personal letter to enable the Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory (IFDT) "to form an unbiased and competent Managing Board," N1 reported on Thursday.

He also asked Vucic to facilitate "a transparent and adequate procedure in electing a new director."

Earlier, Chomsky joinedover 400 academicians and professors from the most prestigious world universities, who publicly supported IFDT in its protest over a man imposed on them as a new Managing Board and acting director.

Chomsky, a foreign member of the Serbian Academy of Science and Art (SANU), wrote to Vucic he was worried about "this exceptional Institute being targeted by the regime,"

He added that IFDT's concerns over poor choice were justified because it "will have damaging consequences to its autonomous work."I

FDT has recalled several times that because of their critical views of the authorities the Institute has been under attacks from some state institutions "which imposed on us a compromised president of the Managing Board and incompetent acting director who comes outside IFDT."
