Istvan Bibo Free University
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, addressing topics such as “The Shadow of 75 Years. World War, Consequences, Memory” and “From the Gypsy Problem to Roma Emancipation.” 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 CEU Democracy Institute hosts, supports, promotes, and provides lecturers for the Free University’s courses and events.
Rudolf Paksa and his guests, military historian Csaba B. Stenge and propaganda-researcher Peter Viranyi address Hungary’s role in World War II, and war propaganda (in Hungarian).
