Eva Gedeon, Director of the CEU-OSUN Summer University, recently sat down for an online interview with Bonnie Goad, OSUN Director of Communications, to discuss the program’s history, vision, and what’s in store for the future.
We are proud to announce that Alessandra Donati's book on the Precautionary Principle Under EU law (Le principe de précaution en droit de l'Union européenne) has been published by Bruylant. "Without any doubts, my reflections greatly benefited from the work, the dialogue, and the brainstorming that I carried out at the summer school in Budapest a few years ago" our alumna said.

This year the CEU Summer University will work together with the Open Society University Network to provide new interdisciplinary courses on a range of topics and disciplines. This partnership has allowed the program to grow in its range of subjects and outreach by offering significantly more funding for course development and scholarships.

"I was blown away by the quality of students and faculty at the CEU. The group-teaching environment meant that I had an opportunity to see my colleagues in action and to learn from their teaching styles and their respective knowledge bases. I was also amazed by the quality of the students, who came from across the world and showed particularly strong representation in Eastern Europe, where there are so many fine young people working in the field of later Roman history.
The CEU Summer University was - and remains - one of the greatest experiences of my life. It was the thing, the "trigger" that convinced me to return to academia and pursue a PhD. I was not enrolled as a student when I applied to CEU, and I craved something engaging, something immersive and international, something that involved learning and would give me direction in my career. The CEU summer school was the perfect opportunity for this. Plus, it had the perfect course for me: “The Politics of Citizenship”. I studied issues of nationalism, identity, and citizenship during my M.A.
Soon after his CEU Summer University course ended, Cristian Lupsa, a participant of the “Funding Journalism in the Digital Age” course posted this on Facebook to his fellow participants:
“Hey all. Hope you're still running on the Budapest buzz! I still am.”
Lupsa, editor of Decat o Revista (DoR), a Romanian quarterly magazine, was one of the twenty media practitioners from 16 countries including Nepal, Mexico, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Japan, Turkey and Syria, among others, to attend the course.
