Budapest

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.
