Human Rights Law Centre, The University of Nottingham Supports CEU

April 11, 2017

CEU is a valued member of the international academic community and its presence in Hungary has added  to  the  reputation  of  Hungarian  academic  life  on  the  international  stage.  The  government’s proposed  legislation  to  alter  its  statute  of  operation  in  Hungary  would  compromise  its  academic freedom and set a dangerous precedent for academic life in other countries.

We respectfully urge the government to withdraw the proposed legislation and enter consultation with CEU, bearing in mind the damage such legislation might do to Hungary’s well-founded international academic reputation, to its relationships with its European partners and with the United States.
