Bálint Ferenczi is a final year BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics student at the University of Warwick. His main interests centre around political studies, specifically identity politics, memory politics, democratic legitimacy and social policy.
His political interests are twofold. On the one hand he is interested in the evolution of political ideologies, the emergence and development of political identities and normative concepts of political and social systems. On the other hand, he believes that the understanding of the emergence of political movements around certain ideals and identities are inseparable from the studies of the ideals themselves and therefore political participation and active civic engagement is also an important aspect of academic activities.
Bálint is currently a research intern in the Inequalities and Democracy work-group at the Democracy Institute working on the History of Our Struggles – Resource Bank about Hungarian Social Movements project.
