Central European University under threat


Proposed legislation is under discussion in the Hungarian Parliament that would endanger the existence of the Central European University (CEU), a unique and valued IAU member based in Budapest. The legislation would limit CEU’s autonomy and among other things, prevent it from delivering US degrees and hiring international faculty. Support for CEU is being provided by many and an international petition to prevent the law from being adopted is circulating worldwide.
