In the new episode of the Istvan Bibo Free University podcast series, Angela Kocze, Chair of Romani Studies, Tibor Racz Junior Manager, Marton Rovid Visiting Professor, and Robert Papp host address the course taught by CEU Romani Studies Program, “From the Gypsy Problem to Roma Emancipation” (in Hungarian).
The Istvan Bibo Free University brings together Hungarians of differing viewpoints and different generations to discuss the social, economic and political problems of Hungary and the European Union in an atmosphere of mutual respect. With courses and online and offline public debates, the Free University aims for political diversity among lecturers and audience alike. The program is named for István Bibó, an important Hungarian thinker whose personality and ideas connected various oppositional circles together before 1989, during the era of socialism.
The Romani Studies Program has been an independent academic unit of Central European University since 2017. It aims to engage scholars, policy makers, and activists in interdisciplinary knowledge production and debate. It encompasses the Roma Graduate Preparation Program and the Advanced Certificate in Romani Studies, and offers courses for MA and PhD students of CEU and summer courses for graduate students and activists and scholars from all over the world.
