“Nothing about us without us,” Professor Ian Hancock of the University of Texas at Austin said in his opening remarks at a conference entitled "The Damages of Anti-Gypsyism and Tools for Improved Responses," the opening part of a colloquium on hate speech held at CEU on March 17.
Increasing volatility in the European Union has a strong influence on enlargement. In order to respond to recent changes across Europe, from March 2016, the Center for EU Enlargement Studies will be known as the Center for European Neighborhood Studies, while keeping its established acronym - CENS. It will retain its focus on EU enlargement, however, its change in name also brings a revision of its mission.
CEU Professor Peter Balazs, director of the Center for EU Enlargement Studies (CENS) and former Hungarian foreign minister, was awarded the Dr. Jean Mayer Global Citizenship Award by Tufts University in February.
"In the recognition of your integrity and valor as Foreign Minister, encouraging respect for humanities values and rule of law and fighting discrimination," the award said.
