CEU showcased its experience in internationalization in higher education this month at the European Association for International Education (EAIE) Annual Conference. Held September 12-15 in Seville, Spain, six CEU representatives presented to many of the 6,000 delegates from 95 countries on topics ranging from international alumni relations trends, and the international student life cycle, and the challenges internationalization policies face in a polarized world.
CEU alumna Lenka Bustikova (POLS '00) and Cristina Corduneau-Huci, assistant professor at CEU's School of Public Policy and Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy, and International Relations, received the prize for 2017 Best Paper award by the American Political Science Association's Comparative Democratization section for their article, Patronage, Trust, and State Capacity: The Historical Trajectories of Clientelism.
