A number of our writers and editors have had the pleasure of directly benefiting from educational opportunities and discussions at CEU. However, this is just a tiny part of the reason why we choose to stand with the university in these difficult days.
We stand with CEU because of what we have learned there. We stand with CEU because of the people we’ve met there. We stand with CEU because of what these people do and what they care about.
We stand with CEU because it has stood by others; it has not been afraid to support the poor, the Roma, or the refugees, and to argue that the EU should not be a fortress, that it must keep engaging with its neighbors based on values, not just interests.
We stand with CEU because this needs to be said clearly and loudly: any government that does not appreciate such a hub of intellectual freedom and courageous social engagement is a government that ultimately confesses to not caring about the well-being of the society it claims to represent and should serve.
We stand with CEU precisely because it has helped develop many committed human beings who refuse to simply stay locked inside their bubbles, but instead share their ideas with others.
We stand with CEU because we believe these values – values the V4 Revue shares – are worth defending.
