Quote: “Pursuing research and teaching in Hungary will allow me to gain a greater appreciation of the country’s history and the views of its population. I will fulfill the ‘give’ as much as the ‘take’ of this endeavor by conveying what I admire about the U.S. in my day-to-day activities. Through this commitment to intercultural communication, I will strive to know Hungary authentically and to serve as an envoy of shared values.”

The Danube Institute exists to provide an independent center of intellectual debate for conservatives and classical liberals and their democratic opponents in Central Europe. The Institute promotes its aims through two main programs: the publication of studies on issues of public controversy and through seminars, debates, and public lectures. Activities, however, go beyond a purely economic or political agenda to address the cultural and moral topics which increasingly shape attitudes to public policy issues
