St Antony's College, University of Oxford Supports CEU

April 20, 2017

St Antony’s College Oxford expresses its shock and dismay at legal changes which threaten the entire future of the Central European University.  The attempt to undermine and destroy a leading academic institution, which has brought so much benefit to the people of Hungary and Europe as well as to international scholarship, is wrong-headed, illiberal and deeply damaging to the interests of Hungary. We urge the Hungarian government to reconsider its position and initiate an amendment of that legislation, and we offer our full support to the President and Rector of CEU, Professor Michael Ignatieff, and all his colleagues.
