Angéla Kóczé, visiting assistant professor in the Department of Women’s Gender, and Sexuality Studies, was one of the speakers, recently, at a conference focused on minority rights in the United States and in Europe.

The Central European University web site reported that Kóczé and other experts gathered in Budapest Dec. 7-8 for CEU’s conference called “Inside the Struggle: The U.S. Civil Rights Movement & the European Roma Rights Crisis.”

The conference juxtaposed the situation of Roma communities in Europe that face discrimination, violence and poverty with the U.S. civil rights movement’s successes and continued challenges.
