Message in support of our colleagues at Central European University, Budapest

Following the recent legislative action by the Hungarian government, we would like to express our deep concern over the impact of the proposed law on Central European University (CEU), endangering its further operations in Hungary. Together with many academics in Hungary and around the world, we perceive this action as an assault on an independent academic institution which has been globally recognized for its research and teaching excellence, as well as for its unrelenting efforts in nurturing and spreading democratic values across the region. We would like to offer unequivocal support to our colleagues at the Centre for Media, Data and Society, as well as to the entire academic community of Central European University at this difficult time, and we call upon the Hungarian lawmakers and government representatives to ensure that CEU will be allowed to continue its academic mission in Hungary.
