CEU Building

CEU evolved from a series of lectures held at the IUC in Dubrovnik, Yugoslavia, (now Croatia). In the Spring of 1989, as historical change was gathering momentum in the region the need for a new, independent, international university was being considered. The minutes of the gathering held in April 1989 records a discussion among scholars such as Rudolf Andorka, Péter Hanák, Márton Tardos, István Teplán, Tibor Vámos and Miklós Vásárhelyi from Budapest, William Newton-Smith and Kathleen Wilkes
Kathleen Wilkes
from Oxford, Jan Havranek, Michal Illner and Jiří Kořalka from Prague, Krzysztof Michalski and Włodzimierz Siwiński from Warsaw.[10] The University was founded in 1991 in response to the fall of the Socialist Bloc. The founding vision was to create a university dedicated to examining the contemporary challenges of "open societies" and democratization. The initial aim was to create a Western-modeled yet distinctly Central European institution that would foster inter-regional cooperation and educate a new corps of regional leaders to help usher in democratic transitions across the region. CEU was set up in Budapest, Prague, and Warsaw.[11] It was originally located mostly in Prague, but because of "political and financial conflict between its founder and [the] Czech government,"[12] represented by then premier minister Vaclav Klaus, it was moved to Budapest. In its second decade, CEU broadened its focus from regional to global, with a special emphasis on democracy promotion and human rights around the world. It has since developed a distinct academic approach, combining regional studies with an international perspective, emphasizing comparative and interdisciplinary research in order to generate new scholarship and policy initiatives, and to promote good governance and the rule of law.[13] CEU has extended its outreach and financial aid programs to certain areas of the developing world.[14] CEU began the region's first master's degree programs in gender studies and environmental sciences. The CEU Center for Media, Data and Society is the leading center of research on media, communication, and information policy in the region. On 14 October 2007 George Soros
George Soros
stepped down as Chairman of CEU Board. Leon Botstein
Leon Botstein
(President of Bard College, New York), who had previously served as the Vice-Chair of the Board, was elected as new Chairman for a two-year term. George Soros
George Soros
is a Life-CEU Trustee and serves as Honorary Chairman of the Board.[15] On 1 August 2009 Rector Yehuda Elkana
Yehuda Elkana
was succeeded by human rights leader and legal scholar John Shattuck.[16] On 5 May 2016, it was announced that Michael Ignatieff
Michael Ignatieff
would succeed Shattuck, becoming the fifth president and rector of the university.[17] Ignatieff's inaugarition took place at the University's new auditorium on 21 October 2017. Controversy[edit] Amendment to Act CCIV of 2011 on National Higher Education in the Hungarian Parliament (2017)[edit] The announcement and CEU's initial reactions[edit] On 28 March 2017, Hungarian Minister of Human Resources Zoltán Balog, also responsible for education, submitted a bill to Parliament to amend Act CCIV of 2011 on National Higher Education. The bill aims to introduce new regulations for foreign-operating universities, several of which affect CEU. Notably, such universities could only operate if the Hungarian government has an agreement with the university's other country of operation (concerning CEU, the agreement is between the State of New York and the city of Budapest). In addition, universities operating outside of the European Union
European Union
should have a campus in their other country of operation, where comparable degree programs would be offered (currently not the case for CEU). Furthermore, both existing and new non-EU academic staff would be required to apply for working permits. This requirement is seen by critics as placing CEU at a particular disadvantage, given that it relies largely on non-EU faculty. Finally, the law would also prohibit both the American and Hungarian entities from sharing the same name.[18] CEU issued a statement expressing its opposition to the bill, noting that "these amendments [to Act CCIV of 2011 on National Higher Education] would make it impossible for the University to continue its operations as an institution of higher education in Budapest, CEU's home for 25 years", and that "CEU is in full conformity with Hungarian law."[19] The same day, the Hungarian news website Origo.hu, considered pro-government by The Budapest
Budapest
Beacon, published an article asserting that CEU, to which it referred as "Soros University" (George Soros being its founder and main benefactor, and also known an opponent of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán
Viktor Orbán
and his Fidesz
Fidesz
party), operated unlawfully in Hungary, citing regulatory infractions. The article also referred to a report prepared by Hungary's Educational Authority, which revealed that 28 universities, including CEU, were being investigated for operating unlawfully in Hungary.[18] CEU issued a statement in response to the article, claiming the allegations of cheating and regulatory infractions constituted defamations and libel, and threatened to sue the website if the article was not corrected.[19] On 29 March 2017, Michael Ignatieff, the President and Rector of CEU and Pro-Rector for Hungarian Affairs Zsolt Enyedi and Pro-Rector for Social Sciences and Humanities Éva Fodor held a press conference. Ignatieff said, among other things, that "the legislation tabled by the Hungarian government relating to higher education is targeted and discriminatory, attacks the CEU, and is an unacceptable assault on our academic freedom", and "the academic freedom of Hungarian higher education in general". Later, Ignatieff and Enyedi met Secretary of State for Education László Palkovics. CEU issued a statement thereafter, calling "for the government to withdraw this legislation and enter into negotiations to find a solution."[20] On 31 March 2017, Viktor Orbán
Viktor Orbán
stated in an interview to public radio that the future of "Soros University" (referring to George Soros, founder and main benefactor of CEU) depended on US-Hungarian talks. He said that CEU was "cheating" by awarding both Hungarian and American degrees, despite not operating abroad. This was a breach of Hungarian regulations, which gave an unfair advantage to CEU. In response to those claims, CEU issued a statement rejecting the suggestion that it was cheating and in breach of Hungarian regulations. Indeed, according to CEU, no laws in effect required universities such as CEU to also operate in their countries of origin.[21] Expressions of support for CEU[edit] On the same day, the United States
United States
government released a statement expressing concern about the proposed legislation, which would "negatively affect or even lead to the closure of Central European University (CEU) in Budapest", and urging the Hungarian government not to take "any legislative action that would compromise CEU's operations or independence."[22] Hungary's ombudsman for educational rights Lajos Aary-Tamas called the amendment to the Higher Education Law "discriminatory against CEU", and said that during his 17 years in office he had never received any complaint about CEU's legal status.[23] Hungarian EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth Tibor Navracsics, and former President of Hungary
Hungary
László Sólyom
László Sólyom
also expressed support.[24][25] Academics and academic institutions from Hungary, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Romania, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the United States, and other countries have expressed support for CEU. CEU itself has started a campaign of support, with the slogans #aCEUvalvagyok in Hungarian and #IstandwithCEU in English. The campaign uses social media to call on supporters to express their solidarity to CEU and write to Hungarian representatives. On 2 April 2017, a protest was held in the form of a walk from Budapest's Corvinus University to Parliament, passing by Eötvös Loránd University and CEU. The demonstration brought together thousands of protesters according to Reuters, with protest speeches held by both CEU and foreign academics and activists, and was broadcast live on Facebook by Hír TV.[26] In the wake of the new Hungarian legislation, the Czech minister of Finance Andrej Babiš
Andrej Babiš
proposed the CEU be moved to Prague, Czech Republic, offering particular buildings in the centre of the city that the university might use.[27] Legal action by CEU and acceleration of the legislative procedure[edit] On 3 April 2017, CEU submitted a legal memorandum to the Hungarian Parliament, raising substantial issues about the legality and constitutionality of the proposed amendment to Act CCIV of 2011 on national higher education, and pledged to continue to contest this law using all available legal means in Hungary
Hungary
and in the EU.[28] On the same day, the Hungarian parliament decided to debate and vote on the draft bill the following day, after a request by Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén, also head of the Christian Democrats, the junior party in the government coalition. Semjén said his request was justified by "government interests to pass the law early."[29] Context[edit] Commentators[who?] have interpreted the proposed bill as the continuation of Orbán's government campaign against liberalism and foreign-funded NGOs.[citation needed] Vice chairman of Fidesz
Fidesz
Szilard Nemeth said that civil society groups with funding from Soros should be "swept out" of Hungary.[30][why?] Orbán has repeatedly criticized Soros in strong terms for trying to influence Hungarian politics, accusing him, for instance, of stoking a refugee wave to weaken Europe.[citation needed] Critics of Orbán note that he himself owes his career in part to Soros' support: he received[when?] a scholarship from the Soros Foundation
Soros Foundation
to study political science at Pembroke College, Oxford, and other prominent members of his party (Fidesz) have been financially supported[when?] by Soros.[31] Opposition to CEU getting "preferential treatment"[edit] In April 2017, British author Tibor Fischer
Tibor Fischer
expressed his support for the legislation passed on the initiative of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's government, which affects CEU as well as all other Hungarian universities.[32] Fischer defended Orban against "charges of antisemitism", indicating that the government "introduced Holocaust education into schools, passed a Holocaust
Holocaust
denial law and...financed Son of Saul, a film about Auschwitz
Auschwitz
that [went on to win] an Oscar."[32] He specified that he opposes the practice whereby the CEU, being registered in New York City,[33] can issue a diploma accredited in the United States
United States
but without actually operating a campus in Hungary
Hungary
within the provisions of the law as every other Hungarian campus, a situation that he named as CEU students "getting a double bubble."[32] Academics[edit] As of 2017, the university has 1,448 students, 868 of which are masters students and 436 of which are doctoral students.[3] CEU offers PhD programs in thirteen different majors, as well as masters programs in nineteen different majors. The university also offers degrees through its School of Public Policy, Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy, and International Relations.[7] Rankings[edit]

department of the university has recently ranked eighth in Europe by the ERC (European Research Council), based on research excellence.[38] The CEU Business School offers the thirteenth best MBA program in Europe, according to the QS TOPMBA survey 2012.[39] In this survey, CEU Business School is consistently placed among the twenty best business schools in Europe. According to a study published by German newspaper Die Zeit, the CEU Department of Political Science is among the top five political science departments in Europe.[40][41] CEU's Department of Legal Studies was ranked first in Central Europe by the Czech newspaper, Lidové noviny. The survey included Austrian, Czech, German, Hungarian, Polish, and Slovak universities.[42] A recent report prepared by the Magyar Rektori Konferencia stated that CEU faculty has the highest number of international publications per capita (recorded in the Web of Science) among Hungarian universities. The same applies to the amount research support grants received in the framework of EU’s Sixth and Seventh Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development. In the recent round of the European Research Council Starting Investigator Grant – the most prestigious grant for young researchers in Europe – Central-East European countries received a total of eight grants. Of the three that came to Hungary

Summer University[edit] CEU’s Summer University is an academic program for young scholars in the humanities and social sciences. Since 1996, CEU’s Summer University has involved 269 Hungarian faculty members and 516 Hungarian participants. Tuition was waived for all but 3% of the Hungarian participants, most of whom were junior academics (graduate students, faculty, and researchers) who received guidance on their research, ideas for developing their own courses, exposure to a variety of teaching methodologies, and access to international and academic and professional networks.[43] Student support[edit] CEU offers a wide range of financial aid packages to the majority of its students. CEU rewards financial aid primarily on the basis of academic merit. Decisions on aid may take into account priorities connected to the university mission as well as documented financial need.[47] In addition to its financial aid, CEU rewards academic excellence of its current students through various research grants and achievement awards. Additionally, different schools or departments within the University offer scholarship schemes suitable for their candidates.[43] CEU Library and OSA[edit] The CEU Library offers a major English-language print collection as well provides access to a wide range of electronic resources in the social sciences and humanities, law, and public policy. With more than more than 400,000 documents in various formats, including over 50,000 e-journals and 160,000 e-books, as well as many academic research databases unique to Hungary, the Library primarily supports CEU students, faculty, and staff through its state-of-the-art research library and regular skills training programs. In addition, the Library grants external membership to students from other educational institutions with similar curricula as well as to other researchers not affiliated with CEU who require the use of the CEU Library collections for their scholarly research. [48] The Open Society Archives
Open Society Archives
at CEU (OSA) is a Cold War research facility, holding over 7,500 linear meters of material, 11,000 hours of audiovisual recordings and 12 terabytes of data[49] related to communist-era political, social, economic and cultural life. OSA’s collection includes an extensive archive of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty transcripts and reports, along with a large collection of underground samizdat literature and materials from Central and Eastern Europe under communism. The archive also houses a growing collection of documents and audiovisual materials on international human rights and war crimes. CEU Press[edit] CEU Press is the largest English-language publisher in Central and Eastern Europe. Since its founding in 1993, it has played an important role in publishing books on the economic, social, and political transformation of the region, including titles by Hungarians or on Hungarian themes. Four of its top-10 best-selling books worldwide are related to Hungary.[43] Alumni and faculty[edit] Alumni[edit] Since its inception, CEU has graduated 14,875 alumni from 136 different countries, the vast majority of whom are now employed in business, education, research, and government.[50] Among the university's alumni in law and government include the current President of Georgia
