Hungary bans gender studies

Viktor Orbán’s government has removed gender studies from an approved list of masters courses in Hungary, following through on proposals that sparked widespread criticism.

The government issued a decree on 12 October effectively ending the future enrolment of students on gender studies courses. The decree was signed by prime minister Orbán and published in Hungary’s journal of legislative changes, according to the Hungarian news website 444.

Gergely Gulyás, chief of staff to Orbán, first confirmed the government’s intention to end its support for gender studies courses on 14 August. The government’s decree specifies that students already enrolled on courses in gender studies will be allowed to complete their degrees.
