Institut für Ost- und Südosteuropaforschung / Leibniz-Institute for East and Southeast European Studies Supports CEU

The Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies, with great concern, has followed
the news about the planned changes to the Hungarian Law on National Higher Education, to be
debated in the parliament. These changes would endanger the academic freedom vital for
CEU's continued operation in Budapest and would strike a blow against the academic freedom
that enables all universities, including those in Hungary, to flourish. It would be a terrible blow
for Hungary as a place of excellent research and jeopardize with a stroke the great work which
CEU has done for the development of research and training on a national and international
scale.
