Onwards and upwards

This month CEU decided to move its offices across the former Iron Curtain to Vienna. After a long-running crackdown of the authorities in Hungary against the university, CEU’s position became untenable. The university is kicked out of Hungary.

Together with Michael Ignatieff, CEU President, internationally renowned philosopher and former-politician, we will delve into challenges European democracies face. What does this move of CEU say about democracy in Europe and the future of former Iron Curtain countries?

How does the CEU's lost battle relate to the current state of affairs in Europe? With the European elections on its way we speak with CEU President Ignatieff about the rise of illiberal democracies in Europe and why the future of Europe is hanging in the balance.
