Statement of the Network of University Teachers against banning the Gender Studies Program and Petition

In the middle of the summer university break, the Hungarian Rectors’ Conference was presented a draft decree from the Ministry of Human Resources and the Ministry of Justice.  This proposal called for the abolition of the masters program on Gender Studies. Such curricula are currently offered by the ELTE Faculty of Social Sciences and the Central European University (CEU).  The draft decree allowed students enrolled this year to complete their studies, but terminated this degree for future years.

The master’s degree in Gender Studies was added to the list of tertiary education in 2006. There followed in 2008 the English offering of the degree at the Central European University, and in 2016 the initial offerings of courses in Hungarian within the Faculty of Social Sciences of ELTE.
