Over the past two years, through the Frontiers of Democracy initiative, CEU academics and invited experts have explored the many aspects of democracy – from how it develops and functions, to how it has been challenged and has eroded in some regions. The final Frontiers of Democracy conference titled “Making Democracy Work” took place June 23 and explored innovative practices that are being used or planned for implementing, expanding, improving or changing democracy.
As part of its 25th anniversary celebrations, the CEU community gathered to reflect on the University's founding vision with a discussion with Founder and Honorary Chairman George Soros on June 24, 2016. CEU was founded in 1991 as a place where scholars can speak openly, enquire deeply and take intellectual risks, as a university dedicated to the principles of open society.
