Implementation: 2017–2021

Head of project: Tomáš Vilímek

Other members of the project team: Adam Havlík, Tomáš Malínek, Petr Dvořáček

Description of project: The project focuses on the normalization period of the years 1969–1989. With federalization of Czechoslovakia in 1969, new organizational structures emerged in connection with the newly established ministries of the interior: one  federal and two national ones. The project aims to reconstruct the organizational development of the intelligence and counter-intelligence services subordinated to the Ministry of the Interior and present their focus, activities and staff in leadership positions. It also examines the circumstances linked to StB’s operations and personnel structure. The project will also include the foreign-policy and domestic-policy context of the studied subject matter.
