“This is exactly the type of project,” explained School of Public Policy (SPP) Dean Wolfgang H. Reinicke, “that we are eager to embrace at the School. It reflects the serious effort of committed academics and practitioners to develop an economics curriculum that is meaningful and relevant.” Assistant Professor Michael Dorsch was a reviewer for the Curriculum Open-access Resources in Economics (CORE) curriculum and will be using it in his Economic Analysis course at SPP.

How did Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán transform from the young “ultimate anarcho-liberal” leader of the early post-Soviet years to the heavy-handed autocrat we know today? In her latest Foreign policy article, “The Autocrat Inside the EU,” SPP’s Center for Media & Communication Studies researcher Amy Brouillette argues Orbán, as a “consummate politician,” is motivated by his quest for power.
In a piece published on Project Syndicate, SPP Dean Wolfgang Reinicke and Senior Advisor Thorsten Benner call Europe to action to address Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s crackdown on civil liberties and political freedoms in Hungary. “The only way to stop him – and to protect the EU’s fundamental values, not to mention its self-respect – is to offer him a clear choice: act like a democratic statesman or become a pariah,” urge Reinicke and Benner.
Interning in leading international organizations, NGOs, and public sector institutions, SPP students are currently working in 17 different countries across six continents. SPP’s Master’s program in Public Policy extends into the summer with a mandatory two- to three-month internship.
