Nicole Nemeth is an attorney from San Diego, California, practicing primarily in civil litigation spanning a multitude of legal disputes. She is a graduate of the University of San Diego and the prestigious Pepperdine University Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution, Mediating the Litigated Case, as well as the Women’s Negotiations Academy. While Ms. Nemeth’s concentration has been in civil and criminal litigation, she actively applies this experience to mediation.
Ms. Nemeth’s father was born and raised in Hungary and escaped the Soviet communist regime in the late 1960’s, but always instilled a love and pride of Hungary. Ms. Nemeth joined the ReConnect Hungary and ReConnect Transylvania Program in the inaugural 28+ year program in 2018, and fell in love with Hungary and Transylvania.
The main goal of establishing the National Policy Research Institute (NPKI) was to create an institution operating according to scientific standards, which can disseminate the results of research on Hungarian communities abroad and support for the motherland in a form that can be used for politics. The scope of activities of the NPKI can be divided into three major areas: research, analysis and preparation of background materials; publishing and organization of academic events; and education.
