A sad day for science: CEU forced out of Hungary


Dec 4, 2018

 

Science under threat

 

Viktor Orban’s outrageous campaign against the Hungarian-American investor and philanthropist George Soros took its toll: Michael Ignatieff, president of the Soros-founded and -funded Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, officially announced yesterday to move large parts of the university step by step to Vienna. This is not a voluntary decision, Ignatieff clearly stated: “We were forced out of the country.”

 

One and a half years ago the Hub already protested against the obvious threats to free science in general and a high quality – and free – university like the CEU in particular by the president of an EU (!) member state. “If science has to subordinate to right wing politics, the fall of civil rights is within reach,” CSH president Stefan Thurner said in April 2017. We all are sad and concerned that this statement has been proven correct.
