Central European University (CEU) is a university located in Budapest, Hungary, which was founded in 1991 by George Soros.[1] It describes itself as utilizing the globalized and diverse culture of its region to provide education in social science, humanities, and law.[2] It has been accredited in the United States as well as Hungary.[3]

Conservative Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán strongly opposed the university, stating that it was cheating students and breaking rules by awarding both a Hungarian and an American diploma, despite the university having no U.S. presence.[4][5] He also opposed George Soros due to his efforts by supporting the massive immigration from Muslim nations into Europe.[4] On April 10, 2017, Hungary enacted a law tightening its standards for universities and thus threatening CEU's existence.[6][7]
