Post-CEU: Chronicles from the Middle East It is a feeling as scary as it is liberating: not to know where you’re going next. I bet a great deal of CEU students were in the same position – or, well, a state of mind! –before putting on their graduation caps and gowns. Sending tens of applications a day, wondering for how long my parents’ house will remain my post-academic shelter, and checking all the email accounts – even spam folders – like crazy.
town: everybody knows everyone, meeting new people is extremely easy, and running into someone you know on the street is an everyday occurrence you have to accept. Both Palestinian and foreign NGO workers, employees of international organizations, journalists: Ramallah, if explored, has a great deal to offer in terms of engaging chats and exchanging experience. Naturally, it would be simply weird not to mention the very political reality that comes to one’s mind as soon as Palestine gets mentioned. Ramallah itself, as my friends would describe it, is like a bubble. When you have child detentions, arrests, raids and shootings in other parts of the West Bank and even very close to Ramallah itself (like the recent Israeli raid on Qalandia refugee camp, which left three people killed), the city seems calm and safe. After having said that, let me clarify one important thing: I’m not trying to state “how things are” here. Instead, all I can say is how things are for me. “Did you move there to learn more about the conflict?”a friend asked me on facebook some weeks ago. I think learning, with the right attitude, is inevitable anywhere you go. It doesn’t have to come from books and papers only, but can be nicely wrapped into a friendly chat, an open conversation, or…simply observing what is happening around you. This sort of learning is not place-specific, yet in Palestine, without a doubt, you can observe rather unique (in a saddening way) things. This is that paragraph where I want to thank CEU. But for its financial assistance, moral support from my professors and friends, many wonderful things would have never happened. Yet since they did, they The Golan Heights can only lead to greater things, I believe. Greater in terms of mind exWell, after a short period of being in this state, I moved to Pal- panding, eye opening, and values reassessed. “Not all those who wanestine.

I liked the place too much, decided I should come back as soon as possible, and…made it happen. Justina Poškevičiūtė After having returned here, it didn’t take me long to remember CEU Alumna Political Science why I liked it so much the first time. The social reality in Ramallah (which Lithuania is, hands down, the cultural capital of the West Bank) is one of a small
The crime of not finding a home The warm days are growing shorter, and we come to appreciate them more. If we can, we ditch the library to enjoy those sunny hours for a jog in the park or even a bike ride out of the city. We think about the cold days, when we hurry through the icy wind, pulling up our scarves and big coats and are happy to reach a cozy home and a warm cup of tea. In our hurry, we often fail to notice those who have to make do with the bare minimum to reach at least a certain level of warmth: with a blanket, if they are lucky, or in an underground station, cardboard paper protecting them from the cold stone ground. No matter how fast we hurry by, most of us feel empathy for the homeless. Only in exceptional cases did they choose this merciless life, one that is deadly for many of them in the winter. Unfortunately, a spot in a shelter is rare, and a night there does not bring them more security than surviving on the streets. Violence and theft are common threats in these spaces. In the eyes of the country's high officials, nevertheless, these people are a disgrace to our beautiful Budapest. Polluting the image of a cultured city, they should be banned from public places that are part of the UNESCO world heritage. After a law of November 2011, in the whole country homeless people could be fined for living on these and any other places that were desigPage 2
nated as “protected” by the local entities. A year later, the Constitutional Court, ruled it unconstitutional, stating that “homelessness is a social problem” and therefore the state should not counteract it with criminalization but rather use social measures. Fortunately, for the governing two-third majority this was not a problem for long. In March of this year, the Constitution was again modified, so to include the possibility to penalize homelessness. Now, the aim could be reached: the Court's ruling is irrelevant and the law could be passed anew! On September 30th, 240 parliamentarians voted for the criminalization of homeless people in these designated “public” spaces, making it illegal for them to even live in home-built shelters. The first three times they can be fined for money or community service, after that they face three months in prison. It is debatable, if there is a point to such measures. A suggested alternative is for local authorities to provide more shelter spaces, which would be cheaper than incarceration. In Budapest alone, humanitarian organizations estimate 8-10,000 people living without a home. However, a scarcity of heated spaces is not a problem, according to the Minister of the Interior's under-secretary. In his opinion “today, Hungary has more heated shelter spaces available than there are homeless.” Continues next page
the CEU Weekly October 26, 2013, Year 4, Issue 37
The government has taken the necessary steps to prepare for the winter, therefore the homeless are to penalize if they miss out on these presumed possibilities. Yet, many organizations argue that this is not the whole story. Findings show that every major city in Hungary is not only missing shelter spaces for their homeless, but other necessities like kitchens are not met either. The group “A Város Mindenkié” (The City belongs to Everyone, AVM) dedicated to the cause of the homeless, and several other groups of the civil society, have organized demonstrations. TASZ, the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union, has written an open letter to Sándor Pintér, the Minister of the Interior, together with eight other organizations, to withdraw his legal proposal, but with no success. Next Saturday (Oct. 19th), AVM will organize a “Walk of Empty Apartments” starting from Deák tér at 2 p.m. The aim is
to show at least one available solution to the problem – by making use of the many empty apartments all around the city. An effective solution would not further marginalize people who are already excluded from many services, because they don't have a home or a job. A study led by Policy Solutions shows that the majority of the population in all age groups actually agrees that criminalization is not the correct way. But for now, the focus remains on the aesthetics of the city rather than solving a societal problem through social measures. Judith Langowski, Gender Studies, Germany/Hungary

the CEU Weekly HUNGARY NEWS
October 16, 2013, Year 4, Issue 37
For health, morals and profit Between the CEU graduation ceremony, in mid June this year, when I left for home and my comeback in the beginning of the October a few significant changes for smokers were made in Hungary. Since I am a smoker myself I noticed them almost immediately, in other words when I had to buy the first pack of cigarettes. Specialized shops for tobacco and other related product popped out like spring flowers on almost every corner of main streets of Budapest. However, they have their own work regime and new prices for all tobacco products, higher of course.
“Just getting some cigarettes!“ I looked for the explanation from the poor sources that I had at the disposal and found out that Nemzeti Dohanybolt (National tobacco shop) is just one of many state measures for “civilizing” Hungarians. To protect their youngsters (age <18) from cunning and greedy shopkeepers or sellers in corporate supermarkets who will sell them deadly tobacco products. In some cases the logo of these new shops clearly says that minors are not welcome into these gray blended rooms where tobacco addicts buy their daily dope. But what stands behind this ethical pro-health measure? When I investigated non-Hungarian sources on Internet the first things that were jumping out of the picture were a few keywords: Fidesz, non-profit state tobacco organization/agency and concessions. Basically the state (Fidesz) implemented a law according to which they nationalized the right to sell tobacco products and immediately sold it in the form of concessions to certain interested parties. Although this time, noticeably, previous distributors were ruled out with almost none of the shops that had tobacco products
before still selling them today. Part of the new act involved the design of the stores’ interior and logos they have to have as designated tobacco sell points. It is a text-book example of clientelism. To confirm it one must go into backgrounds of people who actually got the concession (there is a full list on the Nemzeti Dohanybolt official web-page). At the end of the day, places for buying tobacco in Hungary reduced from around 40 000 to 5 000. Also, not all areas got their concession for the shop. Hence, while on one Budapest street there are few shops in some villages or small cities citizens have to travel several kilometers to buy their cigarettes. Why is there such a disproportion in awarding concessions? Only the Agency and their masters knows. This case reminded me of things I have read about the wild privatization during Tudman’s reign in Croatia in the early nineties. First, the all -powerful Party (HDZ) nationalized the whole economy (in a selfmanaging economy production is the peoples’ property) and through privatization agencies literary gave it or sold it for few pennies to trusted newly borne tycoons that are still today “harassing” majority of the Croatian labour in neoliberal fashion (precarian work and minimum wages). The Hungarian tobacco case is in a great respect similar to great modernizing post-communist plunder that took place in all East-European countries. Hiding behind health and a moral agenda, the Party made just another good business decision using their untouchable position in the Hungarian Parliament, secured by the high number of seats they are holding. The question that remains and most probably will remain is how much the “non-profit” agency and Fidesz will put in their pockets at the end of every financial year for conducting health and moral measures? In the end I have to admit that tobacco addiction and the health issues that the subject always implies when these topics are open is a sensitive field. I myself plan to quit because of health issues and the intolerance of my wallet for daily cigarette needs and would never encourage anybody to start smoking. Therefore, I am glad that I had a chance to look into this matter and put another reason on the list of pros to stop smoking.

the CEU Weekly DEBATE
October 16, 2013, Year 4, Issue 37
Roundtable on the Syrian conflict, October 3th - Interesting but with a lack of focus Panelists: John Shattuck (President and Rector of the CEU), Aziz AlAzmeh (Professor, Department of History), Xymena Kurowska (Assistant Professor, IRES), Erin Kristin Jenne (Associate Professor, IRES). Moderator: Robert Templer. Being two minutes late already meant that it was impossible to find a vacant place in the CEU’s small auditorium. That was what I was expecting. This discussion offered something new. Crimes against humanity were committed when chemical weapons were used in Syria. Our president, John Shattuck, was there. His recent statement that diplomacy in Syria should be backed by force has angered many students. So, the elements for an interesting discussion were there and I was excited. Here I have to admit that I do not know much about Syria. OK, let’s be honest - nothing at all. So, my main goal was to get some new information about the recent events and hopefully to see an active and engaging debate concerning whether ot not diplomacy should be backed with force in the Syrian case or not. Now, looking back at the roundtable, then yes, there was a lot of interesting new information but it also lacked a debate. Every panelist had in the beginning the chance to introduce themselves. Robert Templer asked them to give their opinion about what can be done to end the conflict. This was for certain the question where nobody gave clear answers. However, are there any of them? I would blame the moderator for not directing discussion so as that one or two specific things would be chosen to concentrate on within that limited time period of 90 minutes. For example, I did not get a clear answer as to whether international force be used in Syria or not. Lots of information was presented but there was also a strong lack of focus. The roundtable jumped from one question to another and for me it was difficult to follow all of it. Shattuck highlighted with his introduction, that lasted 16 minutes, the importance of Iran in solving the conflict. Erin Kristin Jenne pointed out that only the focus on chemical weapons is problematic for her. We have to bear in mind that more than 100 000 people have died in Syria as a result of conventional weapons. Aziz Al-Azmeh concentrated more on the internal political
situation of Syria. His favorite subject was the jihadist groups. Xymena Kurowska was the most quiet of the panelists. Her contribution to the discussion was that Russia’s strategic interests in the region are overestimated and that Russian’s president Vladimir Putin does not see himself as Bashar al-Assad. It was all nice and attractive but all those interesting themes were covered quite absently. When other panelists started talking then they analyzed the things in ways they felt most convenient, rather than continuing with the arguments that were presented before.
However, at least we know why John Shattuck did those harsh statements about using force in Syria. He has a personal connection with a Syrian neighborhood, as a former exchange student in Syria many years ago. Besides that, he was in 1995 the first diplomat who reached the survivors from the Srebrenica genocide in Bosnia. I guess he did not want the possibility of massacre reoccurring and the easiest way for this was to intervene in Syria by force. To sum up, I am sure that the people who came did not regret the 90 minutes the roundtable lasted. It was interesting and we got some real insights about what is really going one in Syria. However, next time I would recommend that the roundtable should be concentrated on more specific issues. This time it was too disordered. Karl Haljasmets, Estonia, Public Policy
The Search for Historical Roots: Bethlen and Today's Hungarian Conservatives On 7th of October, the monument of the interwar Hungarian prime minister, Count István Bethlen was inaugurated in The Buda Castle (Szent György tér). This event was one of the mile stones in the current FIDESZ-KDNP government’s attempts at articulating a historical predecessor of their ideological stand. The political forces which perceive and represent themselves as rightistconservatives have been long struggled with the difficulty to find a proper reference point for themselves in Hungarian history. The interwar establishment has on the one hand utterly discredited itself with certain antidemocratic, autocratic and antisemtitic tendencies but on the other hand, it also relied on moral values that resonate for post-transitional conservatives. Therefore
we can witness a deliberate fragmentation of the Horthy regime as a periodical unit and there is a clear attempt to extract some actors and elements in order to become more suitable as idols. I stván Bethlen is an emblematic figure of the interwar Hungary. He was prime minister (1921-1931) and an ever-influential actor of the political scene in this period. In the interwar period, he is seen as a consequent conservative whose worldview is strongly determined by his noble descent. His fear from the possible rule of the uneducated masses made him a believer of restricted democracies and he witnessed reluctantly the Western tendencies of democratization both in political as in social terms. This inaugural ceremony of Bethlen’s monument can be seen as a proof for this tendency, since the persona of István Bethlen seems apt in the hands of the identity policy-makers. However, it had to be clarified first, what is the part of Bethlen's legacy, with which this government actually wants to equate itself and of course, the desirable conceptual framework within which one should position Bethlen. As a historical actor, the persona of Bethlen is naturally a subject of historical debates. Continues next page

October 16, 2013, Year 4, Issue 37
A conference, with the pronounced aim of conducting a real debate on the deeds of the prime minister, was organized three days before the inauguration of the monument. The spot and the setting already predestinated the atmosphere of the debate. The participants assembled in the Upper Chamber of the
Speaker of the National Assembly were also present as well as the grandson of Bethlen's brother. The conference was public; anyone could attend the event when registered online in advance. Twelve historians were invited to deliver presentations on certain aspects of the Bethlen-era. Some presenters could not resist to the temptation to enter into a hagiographic discourse concerning the persona of the late prime minister. These historians gave way either to their personal positive bias towards Bethlen or tried to fulfill in this way the perceived expectations of the organizers of the conference. Other presenters (the minority) preserved their academic integrity and delivered modest and professional presentations. Some explicitly critical voices were also heard, but these were opinions echoed by a tiny minority of the presenters and Hungarian Parliament. Ministers, MPs, the the majority of the audience expressed its
disapproval, when it was mentioned. Although two debates were also indicated in the program, a real debate did not emerge among the invited historians. Instead, the audience could address the presenters with questions. Since the audience was rather a mixture of non-academic participants, these questions barely concerned academic issues. Therefore, the illusion of a conference disappeared quite fast. For those, who still had the hope that all presuppositions about this event being a cult-forging ceremony were false, the words of Pál Fodor (head of the Institute of History at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences), chairman of the first section of the conference made the aim of the event crystal clear: he named István Bethlen the second state-founder.

Presenting our 2013/14 Student Union President Luis Cano Luis Cano is our new Student Union President here at Central European University. I interviewed him last week hoping to ultimately present his qualifications, views and goals to the CEU body – especially to those who may have missed his nomination speech before the assembly, earlier this month. To the presidential seat, Luis brings with him a law degree and a specialization in Constitutional Law, credentials he feels will help him to be “very careful when [designing and reviewing] legislation.” He also brings particular aspirations to the table. He wants not only to lead the student body, but to also “follow” it. While aiming to be a “good manager,” he sees us collectively as his fellow companion. When it comes to most important issues that should be addressed this year, either in the assembly or the senate, he points not to anti-discrimination or sexual harassment policies – which have surfaced as hot topics of debate recently as the year’s first Academic Forum approaches this week – but to finance. He has the elimination (or lack) of research grants from various departments in mind when he says he hopes there’ll be discussions on “the management of resources, mainly financial ones that affect students.” Regarding CEU’s sexual harassment and discrimination policies, Luis notes, “The policies are already there.” At the same time, he does wish that the energy that’s been coming from students as well as professors to better these policies continues, because harassment and discrimination are serious problems, and “every year there is discrimination.” Luis also wants it known that all complaints of harassment and discrimination are to his knowledge never neglected and that transgressors are and have always been disciplined accordingly. Some, however, may not agree with the efficacy of current provisions, at least in relation to harassment. An antiharassment policy proposal is due for consideration by the Forum. The proposal aims to correct CEU’s Code of Ethics’ section on harassment by implementing – according to a memo shared by Alex Fleming on her Facebook Group Enough! Stop Sexism and Sexual Harassment at CEU — a “separate Policy on Harassment” altogether, so as to establish “proper regulation of these issues.” Luis acknowledges the proposal as an example of success (or in this case a first step to victory) that the student body can themselves achieve by working together persistently; which is also why he wants us not only to continue utilizing Facebook, (and Page 6
twitter, which he finds “supper important”) to voice our concerns and to organize, but also to take advantage of an upcoming refurbished Student Union Website. “The website now…it’s a mess,” he says. Many of us have seen it: the upcoming event under the “Our Events” section is a DeStress Week activity at 18:00 on November 30, 2012; the graduation party will go down at the Godor Club on June 17, 2010; and the most “Recent News” is a “CEU Weekly: Interview with the New President of the Student Union,” Emily Saras. But there’s hope: “Workers are working on it,” says Luis. Also in an attempt to improve activity and productivity of student union’s services, Luis plans to transform the bulletin board in the space outside the CEU auditorium into a contact—access board, on which members of the Student Union Assembly will have listed their photos, contact information, as well as a brief description of themselves. This would bring student representatives closer to the entire CEU community. Asked if that project too is something that workers are working on, Luis has affirmed: “Yes…that will happen.” Philippe-Edner Marius, USA, Public Policy Note: Louis can be reached via email: email@example.com; phone:+36704092084; or twitter: lccanor Editorial note: See Alex Fleming’s article on the shortcomings of the enforcement and accessibility of CEU’s Sexual Harrassment Policy in the 36th issue of The CEU Weekly and on our blog.

Caffè Sospeso – Grassroot charity on the rise The Italian term caffè sospeso can be translated into English as “suspended coffee” or “pending coffee”. The mysterious term refers to an old tradition from Naples: someone who got lucky would pay for two cups of coffee in cafés but drink only one of them. Afterward, someone living in poverty could ask for a sospeso, that is, the coffee paid in advance by the unknown benefactor and have a coffee free of charge. The tradition claims to have a 100year-old history, although, it lived its heyday during hard times and became less widespread in periods when the population lived in relative economic prosperity. Nowadays, following the 2008 financial crisis, the phenomenon experiences a revival and even crossed the borders of Italy. There has been reports of caffè sospeso in Bulgaria, Canada, Australia, the US and... Hungary as well. +1 Coffee Movement If we translate caffè sospeso into Hungarian we encounter a small problem: the literal translation sounds strange. Literally it is “felfüggesztett kávé”, but for some reason this is not working in Hungarian. Therefore, when this new form of charity appeared in
Hungary, some of the people involved in the movement realized that they need a more catchy word for it. They settled for ”Adj egyet ajándékba!” i.e. „Give one as a present!” which certainly sounds better than the above mentioned literal translation. Not just coffee Interestingly, the suspended coffee phenomenon did not stay within the walls of Hungarian cafés. Not long after the first suspended coffees were served for people in need, cafés started to expand the offer for sospeso – you could buy extra sandwiches, shakes or whole meals. And once this happened, there was no stopping – today you can even buy extra haircuts or theatre tickets. Those places which participate in sospeso charity are scattered throughout Budapest, but you can find them with the help of a searchable map on the website of the movement. (www.adjegyetajandekba.hu) Places that participate has the following sticker on their door:
Grassroot charity Some consider the “suspended coffee” movement to be the symbol for grassroot charity. Its peculiarity lies in its twofold nature: it is personal and impersonal at the same time. It is personal because it is you who buys the extra coffee/shake/haircut, but it is also impersonal in the sense that your identity remains in the shadow. I also believe that it is not just giving away from the perspective of the grantor, but to a certain extent it is a new form of sharing without the limitations of space and...time. Highly-populated, urbanized city life is strongly characterized by a feeling of constant lack of time. Possibly, one of the reasons behind the popularity of the movement is precisely that sospeso offers a simple, comfortable way of charity which do not demand any extra time from the grantor – just extra money.
