French Scholarly Network of Environmental Historians Supports CEU

As concerned citizens in Hungary, Europe, and around the world, we are writing to express solidarity with Central European University and express concern regarding Bill T/14686 amending the Hungarian Higher Education Act and accepted by the Hungarian Parliament on April 4, 2017. The Bill renders CEU's continued operations in Budapest virtually impossible and strikes a severe blow against the academic freedom that enables all universities, including those in Hungary, to flourish. Further the bill raises significant legal and constitutional concerns.
