About Istvan S Pogany Professor

My research is focused on human rights issues in Central and Eastern Europe. In particular, I have worked on the multiple problems experienced by Europe's largest ethnic minority, the Roma, as well as on historical and and contemporary aspects of anti-Semitism in the region. More recently, I have critically examined constitutional and political developments in Hungary, which suggest a possible reversion to a more authoritarian form of democracy. In addition, I have been engaged, for some years, in studying public archives in western Romania, which contain a wealth of material on minority, gender and socio-economic issues at the turn of the twentieth century in Austria-Hungary.
