René Cassin AJA Fellows go to Budapest!

The trip offered our Fellows the opportunity to learn about why Hungarian society has embraced nationalism, how its ascendance has affected human rights & its impact on organised civil society.

Day One – Philosophy, history & activism

Lauren Chaplin reflects on Day One, where Fellows met with Professor Gabor Balzas, Aniko Feliz of the Tom Lantos Institute and activist and academic Eszter Susan.

Day Three – Jewish, Roma and LGBTQI intersectionality

Bella Lever is “particularly struck by the interaction and overlap” between the Jewish, LGBTQI and GRT organisations that the Fellows encounter on Day Three.

Day Four – Charity Taxi Project

Sam Alston reflects on the Fellows’ fourth day in Budapest.
