Gender Studies are at stake in Hungary due to the decision of the government cancelling the funding of the two existing master programmes in this field.

A letter sent by the International Association of Institutions of Advanced Gender Studies (RINGS) drew the attention of FEMM Members to this possibility some weeks ago. Since then, the deletion from the list of accredited masters programmes has taken place by the means of a governmental decree published in the Hungarian official gazette which come into effect on 13 October.

The representatives from the network raised this important issue and also informed FEMM Members about the situation of gender studies in other Member States.
