Directors of Centers for East European, Russian and Eurasian Studies across the United States, in Germany and in the United Kingdom Supports CEU

May 5, 2017

We write to you as the Directors of Centers for East European, Russian and Eurasian Studies across the United States, in Germany and in the United Kingdom. As scholars and experts on the region, we forcefully protest the recent amendments to the Hungarian National Higher Education Act that pose an existential threat to the Central European University in Budapest. These actions threaten academic freedom across the region and in Europe as a whole.
