The Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (the S&D Group) Supports CEU

Following a draft law from Victor Orbán’s government that would effectively ban the globally regarded Central European University (CEU) from operating in Hungary, S&D Group president Gianni Pittella said:

"After the attack on the media autonomy, now Orbán is trying to silence another outstanding symbol of the freedom of thought and expression in Hungary: The Central European University. This is completely unacceptable and reinforces our concerns over the decline of democracy in Hungary under Orbán."
