Moses Mendelssohn Zentrum für europäisch-jüdische Studien Supports CEU

We would like to express our solidarity with the Central European University and call upon you to reconsider the proposed legislation. To carry through this project would significantly impoverish the Hungarian and European landscape in Jewish Studies, and undoubtedly constitute a major loss also in the many other disciplines in which CEU excels. We respectfully urge the government to withdraw the proposed legislation and enter consultation with CEU, bearing in mind the damage such legislaion might do to Hungary's well-founded international academic reputation, to its relationships with its European partners and with the United States.
