The Central European University’s origin in 1991 was at a time when Europe was emerging from cataclysmic events relating to the change of guard engendered by the collapse of the USSR and the abandonment of communism.
Many of the repressive and dictatorial regimes of the old order had been cast aside and people were seriously and enthusiastically engaged in rebuilding their nations. The CEU’s founding fathers were visionaries and former opponents of the repressive regimes that had been extant in Europe.
