PSSI Staff Announcements


With deep gratitude for his 13 years of dedicated service to PSSI, all of us at the Prague Security Studies Institute wish to bid a fond farewell to our dear friend and colleague, Petr Lang, who has decided to pursue new career opportunities. After the 2012 passing of the Institute’s beloved Executive Director and Co-Founder, Oldřich Černý, Petr stepped up as the public face of PSSI Prague and ably carried on Olda’s brilliant legacy. He saw us through countless accomplishments, gatherings, and successful policy initiatives, and will be sorely missed. Fortunately, he has kindly agreed to remain on the Institute’s Board of Directors. 

Dr. Jana Robinson will take on the position of the Institute’s Managing Director and be in charge of all programmatic activities and operations. She will also continue to serve in her capacity as Space Security Program Director. 

We are also welcoming a new team member, Boris Kaliský, who has been associated with our Institute for a number of years. Boris will assume responsibilities as PSSI’s Director of Operations on April 1, 2020. Boris has a wealth of experience in the NGO community, including at Vaclav Havel’s Forum 2000 under the stewardship of Oldřich Černý. We are delighted to have him on board and he will help ensure a smooth transition.
