Statement by Cambridge University faculty members

April 20, 2017

We, faculty members and researchers of the University of Cambridge with Hungarian roots watch the Hungarian government's offensive against the Central European University (CEU) in Budapest with sorrow and consternation. Many eminent colleagues both in Hungary and around the world have pointed out recently that CEU is one of the very few world class institutions of learning and research in the country. As such, it deserves to be supported, not attacked. In fact it would even suffice to simply allow its academics to do their job.
