CEU ranks 30th in the 2020 QS World University Rankings, respectively in the subject areas of Politics and International Studies, in which CEU School of Public Policy contributes.

Last weekend students from 10 universities around Europe competed in the 2020 NASPAA-Batten Student Simulation Competition. Congratulations to City 2, at the Budapest Site for winning first place.

A panel of Professors Julia Buxton (SPP), Sandor Nagy (Corvinus) and visiting Erasmus teaching fellow Jorge Nallim (University of Manitoba) considered the return of the political right in Latin America. The event drew a large audience, including the much welcomed attendance of students from Corvinus.

Nick Sitter (School of Public Policy) and Elisabeth Bakke (University of Oslo) publish an article in the Oxford University Press Encyclopedia of European Union Politics on-line version, on Democratic Backsliding in the European Union. It argues that democratic backsliding in EU member states are not only a policy challenge for the EU, but a potential existential crisis because it undermined the credibility of its rule-of-law-based system.

MEP Michal Šimečka, Vice-Chair of the Renew Europe Group in the European Parliament, launched the Mechanism at CEU’s School of Public Policy (SPP) on February 18, 2020, in his role of the Parliament's Rapporteur for the Democracy, Rule of Law and Fundamental Rights Pact.
