Announcing ‘Budapest & Beyond’

The first event in the Debates on Europe series took place in Budapest in 2012. Meanwhile, almost a decade on, Hungarian “illiberal democracy” has developed into one of the biggest challenges facing the European integration project.

So, it is high time to revisit the issue of Hungarys role in Europe. We are happy to present our programme for Debates on Europe: Budapest & Beyond. Defending Intellectual Freedom. In five events from 4 to 7 May, Zsófia Bán, Győző Ferencz, Anna Gács, Timothy Garton Ash, Rüdiger Görner, Barbara Stollberg-Rilinger and other wonderful participants will discuss the importance of academic and artistic freedom and what it actually is.

You can view the full programme here. The events will take place exclusively online and will be available on our website and our YouTube channel. For general updates, please follow our Twitter account. No registration is necessary.
