Dóra Piroska on academic freedom in Hungary

August 11, 2023

A recent article in Chemistry World, a monthly chemistry news magazine published by the Royal Society of Chemistry, paints a bleak picture of academic freedom in Hungary today.

As Dóra Piroska says, ‘Every change that undermines democracy is passed as a law or a decree by parliament, where government has two-thirds majority’ .

We may well be in for the long run, as it is unclear when and how the conflict between the EU and Hungary will be resolved and to what extent judicial reforms will constitute an improvement on the current situation.
