University of Theatre and Film Arts (SZFE): CEU Senate Statement

September 3, 2020

The elimination of the autonomy of the University of Theatre and Film Arts (SZFE) is the most recent chapter in the systematic undermining of academic freedom in Hungary. The Senate of Central European University declares its solidarity with SZFE's faculty and students who are defending, in the interest of all of us, the freedom of education and research as well as artistic expression, a fundamental value of European culture.
