Towards a realistic European policy agenda for academics at risk

On April 12, at the initiative of the Academic Department of Social Sciences, a scientific seminar was held on the topic: “Towards a realistic European policy agenda for academics at risk”

The discussion was based on the text of an article presented by Andrea Pető, a Hungarian researcher, Professor at the Department of Gender Studies at Central European University, Vienna, Austria, awarded the 2018 All European Academies (ALLEA) Madame de Staël
Prize for Cultural Values and the 2022 University of Oslo Human Rights Award.

Why does higher education matter? Is higher education a national business? Or a security
issue? What is definite that the liberal education is under attack. And it is important to
remember that support for academics at risk should consider them as active members of
groups and networks and not only as individuals in need of humanitarian aid.

These and many other questions were covered by Professor Pető during the seminar.
