Our 2017 René Cassin Fellows recently returned from Budapest on a five day trip examining human rights issues.

Hungary’s nationalist government is clamping down on human rights – and refugees, Roma and sexual minorities are under attack. Ethan Schwartz, one of our Fellows, was alarmed by the brazenly illiberal march of government policy andthe rise of the far right. In this piece in the Jewish News he summarises the trip and asks if this could happen in the UK. But he also writes about the inspiration he found in the human rights activists – many of them Jewish – who are resisting the regime at every turn.

We would like to thank the Anglo-Jewish Association. Without their generous support the Fellowship Programme would not be possible.
