The Central European University (Közép-európai Egyetem) is not and has never been the subject or specific target of the legislative amendment adopted by Hungarian Parliament today and, contrary to intentionally disseminated misleading information, the CEU will be able to continue its operation as soon as an international agreement has been reached.
For years, CEU has enjoyed specific privileges unavailable to any other institution of higher education in Hungary. Simply put, this legislative amendment brings this discriminative business practice to an end, closes loopholes and will create a level playing field for all universities operating in Hungary.
The future operations of the CEU must be settled by international agreement within a reasonable timescale.
