SPP students and alumni have participated in a number of career talks this academic year starting with a recruitment talk by Open Society Foundations in November.
NASPAA (The Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration) have selected SPP to be one of the regional sites for the worldwide 2018 NASPAA Batten Student Simulation Competition. “The Selection Committee was very impressed with SPP’s application,” commented NASPAA Executive Director Laurel McFarland. “We’re looking forward to being in Budapest in 2018.”
"Austerity has asymmetrical effects. It is racialized, gendered, and classed – always," said Akwugo Emejulu in a public lecture at CEU's School of Public Policy on November 22. Emejulu, who is senior lecturer and co-director of the Gender Justice Lab at the University of Edinburgh, shared the results of a two-year study that she and Leah Bassel, senior lecturer at the University of Leicester, conducted in 2011-14 to explore the impact that the 2008 economic crisis and resulting austerity measures have had on minority women and the third sector in Scotland, England, and France.
