Laura Royer – completed my BA in social sciences in France in 2016. After traveling and living in CEE for a year, she decided to start an international master’s programme in Central and East European, Russian and Eurasian studies (University of Tartu, University of Glasgow and Jagiellonian University).
She is primarily interested in nationalism and identity politics, with a strong focus on Hungary. She has also increasingly become concerned with the political reactions to the (so-called) migrant crisis.
She currently lives in Budapest where she is interning at two NGOs (Minority Rights Group Europe and Szubjektív Értékek Alapítvány), both involved in promoting cultural diversity and defending minority rights in Hungary and beyond.
