Matei Speaks to Hungarian Catholic Radio on Myanmar Partnership

Liviu Matei, senior vice president and higher education policy professor at CEU spoke to Hungarian Catholic Radio in an interview about the partnership regarding university autonomy in Myanmar. As Myanmar opens up after several decades of dictatorship, its higher education system is undergoing a major process of reform. CEU has been contributing to the process of democratization and reform by providing expertise in higher education policy and management, institutional and curriculum reform, since spring 2013. Matei also spoke about the university autonomy handbook prepared specifically for Myanmar by himself and Julia Iwinska, strategic planning director and higher education policy researcher at CEU, following consultations with government, opposition, and local stakeholders.

The interview was broadcast on June 14 and 15, in the program ”Uzenofuzet” (Message book), which is a magazine for teachers, parents, and students, and deals with issues of education.
