About Us

The Civitas Europica Centralis (CEC) Foundation was founded in 1996. It is a public benefit organization. It examines the situation of the minorities living in the Central and Eastern European region, having regard to the possibilities offered by the EU integration.
The CEC organizes and participates in research projects aiming at the examination of the possibilities for coping with the traumas of the 20th century which had interrupted the Central European region’s modernization, and the possibilities for creating integrated and modern societies.
  • It carries out international comparative researches examining the role of the historical churches in the anti-Semitism between the two world wars and in the Holocaust – paying special attention to the growing ethicise and nationalisms, and to the intensifying phenomenon of Holocaust denial.
  • It examines the effects of the Islam on the politics in Hungary.
  • It wishes to contribute to cooperation and revitalization of border regions (European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation), and to development programs of the Roma population.
