In her new, Open Access (OA) book, “The Gender Regime of Anti-Liberal Hungary”, Eva Fodor, Associate Professor in CEU’s Department of Gender Studies and Co-Director of the CEU Democracy Institute, analyzes the gender regime of anti-liberal Hungary. The book is the first to be published with support from the Provost’s OA Publishing Fund, recently established to encourage widespread readership of the research results of CEU faculty.
Based on a review of Hungary's recently passed policies and the related political and media discourse on gender, Fodor argues in her book that a new form of welfare state is emerging, one she calls "carefare". The book additionally describes changes in the conceptualization and regulation of the work of foster parents as a case study of a carefare regime.
The Provost’s OA Publishing Fund serves to increase the impact of CEU scholarship and encourage broad public access for those researchers at other institutions that could otherwise not afford access. It supplements CEU Library publisher agreements that include waivers for article processing charges and extends opportunities to other publishing venues and publication types.
Resident CEU faculty who have new submissions for articles, chapters, or scholarly books accepted for publication in approved venues, and do not have other sources of funds to pay processing charges to make their work openly available are eligible for the funding.
