The Bureau of the International Association of Byzantine Studies Supports CEU

April 26, 2017

On behalf of the Bureau of the International Association of Byzantine Studies, which represents scholars form 38 countries across Europe and internationally, I am writing to express our great concern at the current threat to the scientific and educational activities of the Central European University and at the legislative changes to CEU’s status in Hungary.  As many others will have already noted, these changes will endanger the academic freedom vital for CEU’s continued operation in Budapest and will compromise the conditions that enable all universities, including those in Hungary, to flourish.
