Conference Program


In Support of the Central European University

The directors of Institutes and Centers for East European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies from across the United States, including ISEEES, recently sent a letter in support of the Central European University to the European Commission, various members of the European Parliament, to the Hungarian government, and to the U.S. Embassy in Hungary. A copy of the letter can be found here.

 

In addition, ISEEES director John Connelly published an article titled “Central European University Under Attack,” which appeared in the online version of The Nation on April 12, 2017. The article can be accessed here: https://www.thenation.com/article/central-european-university-under/
