Statement of solidarity with Central European University

Hungary's Central European University, one of the country's most prestigious universities, could be forced to close after changes to the law made by the Hungarian government.

-------------------------------------

The University of Sussex Students’ Union and the University of Sussex would like to express its solidarity and support for the Central European University as an integral part of and a high-ranking institution of the Hungarian higher educational system and of the Hungarian and international research community.

We encourage any plans which aim at to enhance the level of teaching and research and to create a balanced and just system of conditions for the whole of the higher education area of Hungary and Europe.

However, If CEU had to stop its operations in Hungary for any reason whatsoever (including as a result of the proposed amendment T/14686 to Act CCIV of 2011 on National Higher Education) this would be a great loss for the Hungarian higher educational system and for Budapest as a science location.

- University of Sussex Students’ Union Executive and Adam Tickell, University of Sussex Vice-Chancellor
