Inconvenient Freedom: Universities in Democratic Reversals

In March 27, the Hungarian government introduced legislation in Hungary’s National Assembly (Országgyűlés) that specifically targeted Central European University in March 2017. In this PechaKucha presentation, I discuss the legislation and the resonance to the Change.org petition I launched in support of CEU.

CEU has provided a timeline of events.

Students and staff of Maastricht University and UNU-MERIT prepared profile/background pictures for social media with the important message that academic freedom matters.
