CEU: the struggle for academic freedom in the 21st century

CEU: the struggle for academic freedom in the 21st century

CEU, the Central European University founded in Budapest in 1991, has become a global symbol for the struggle for academic freedom.

In the face of relentless attacks by Viktor Orbán, it has defended the academy’s liberal values, standing as a beacon of resistance against the Hungarian government’s professed illiberalism.

CEU’s President ­ Michael ­Ignatieff reports on the situation in Budapest and the institution’s decision, announced in spring of 2018, to create a campus in Vienna. The conversation will be moderated by Eric Frey of Austria’s Der Standard.

Speakers:

Michael Ignatieff & Eric Frey

This discussion formed part of the Vienna Humanties Festival 2018, to find out more about the festival, visit TTTdebates.org at: https://www.tttdebates.org/vienna-humanities-festival-2018-power-powerlessness/
