About the Danube Institute
The Danube Institute exists to provide an independent center of intellectual debate for conservatives and classical liberals and their democratic opponents in Central Europe.
Based in Budapest and Washington it seeks to engage with centre-right institutions, scholars, political parties and individuals of achievement across the region to discuss problems of mutual interest.
The Institute also seeks to establish a two-way transmission belt for centre-right ideas, policies and people between Central Europe, Western Europe, and the English speaking world, and to provide an authoritative source of rational and commonsens reporting and commentary for those covering Central Europe for the world outside the region.
Danube institute was founded by the Batthyány Lajos Foundation in 2013 and enjoys a close working relationship with the bi-monthly journal Hungarian Review.
The Institute promotes its aims through two main programmes: the publication of studies on issues of public controversy and through seminars, debates, and public lectures. However, our activities go beyond a purely economic or political agenda to address the cultural and moral topics which increasingly shape attitudes to public policy issues.
Accordingly, it hosts film screenings and reviews plays and other works of particular social, historical, and cultural interest. Our internship and scholarship programmes are intended to advance the intellectual development and career prospects of young people in Central Europe.
