Invitation to Conference Self-determination in the EU and its Neighbourhood in Kooperation mit ECSA Austria

Marking the 100th anniversary of President Wilson's seminal Fourteen Points speech of January 8, 1918 and against the backdrop of the often problematic consequences caused by the Principle of Self-determination that is widely associated with Wilson and the Fourteen Points, the Salzburg Centre for EU Studies – SCEUS and ECSA Austria on January 11 and 12, 2018 organise an international and inter-disciplinary high-level conference in Salzburg under the heading 'Self-determination in the EU and its Neighbourhood. The State of Play 100 Years after Wilson and Lenin'. The conference aims at discussing both fundamental and practical issues stemming from the principle of (national) self-determination in the EU and its neighbourhood from the angles of history, law, and politics.

SCEUS stands with CEU

The Salzburg Centre of European Union Studies (SCEUS) expresses its solidarity with the Central European University (CEU) and its deep concern about the recent changes to the Hungarian Higher Education Act.  

In twenty-five years, CEU has established itself as a university with a global reputation for teaching and research in the social sciences and humanities. For many years, SCEUS has actively and intensely cooperated with faculty members and students of CEU. This makes it one of our core professional partner institutions in Europe.  

We fear that the legislative changes passed by the Hungarian parliament on 4th April 2017 will render CEU’s continued operations in Budapest virtually impossible and, thus, strike a severe blow against academic freedom in Hungary. We, therefore, join many concerned citizens and distinguished institutions in Hungary, Europe and beyond in calling for a reconsideration of the legislative changes in order to protect CEU and the autonomy and freedom of academic life in Hungary more generally.  

Prof. Dr. Sonja Puntscher Riekmann, Director of SCEUS  


For more information and ways to take further action in support of CEU see the University's website.
