Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with the transformation of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences (CSAS) on the example of the Forecasting Institute of CSAS. It follows the Institute’s status from the starting point before November 1989 until its final dissolution by the first general assembly of the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 1993 and includes the context of the position of the whole CSAS. The paper examines the (negotiation) strategies of the Institute’s leaders and its new academic council in their interaction with the CAS leaders and their attempts to ensure the legitimacy of the threatened existence of the Institute. Using the new institutionalism approach, the paper analyses the attempts to adapt to new conditions, which the Institute undertook along with the Economic and Social-Economic Institute of CSAS and which were rejected by the leaders of the Academy.
