Joint Letter Concerning Academic Freedom in Hungary

Updated: Mar 26, 2019

In a collective letter with other organizations, the Association of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies expresses grave concern about the increasingly restrictive climate for academic inquiry and scholarly research in Hungary.

Endangered Scholars Worldwide joins these organizations and call upon all international organizations, academic and professional associations, and other groups and individuals devoted to the promotion and defense of human rights to urge the officials of the Hungarian government to respect, guarantee, and implement the provisions and principles of higher education as specified in international conventions and treaties to which Hungary has long been a signatory.
