SOLIDARITY OF THE SANT’ANNA SCHOOL OF ADVANCED STUDIES FOR CENTRAL EUROPEAN UNIVERSITY OF BUDAPEST

The Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies expresses strong concern over the amendment to the higher education law approved by the Hungarian parliament that would force the Central European University in Budapest to close.

Many Sant’Anna allievi and alumni had the opportunity to appreciate CEU as an outstanding research center in Eastern Europe and some of them still teach and study there. Caterina Sganga, former Law student and PhD student at Sant’Anna, is Assistant Professor at CEU since 2012.

We attach great value to the academic cooperation built over the years between our institutions and we think that CEU independence should be preserved. Therefore, we believe that any formal pretext to cease CEU activities is likely to put academic freedom in danger and it must be rejected.
