About GIAS

The Global Institute for Advanced Study is hosted by the Institute for Advanced Study at Central European University, Budapest (Hungary, European Union). IAS and the CEU Budapest Campus provide a stimulating environment in which fellows can devote themselves to research and share their work with peers through regular seminars and other community events. Fellows have access to all CEU facilities, including seminar and conference space, computer services and library resources. They benefit from CEU’s vibrant international atmosphere, its strong ties in the region of Central and Eastern Europe and its location right in the center of Budapest. IAS CEU facilitates the fellows’ engagement with CEU and the Hungarian, regional and international scholarly community by encouraging collaborative projects, organizing joint public lectures and related activities. Since September 2019, CEU is operating across two campuses, in Vienna and in Budapest. GIAS benefits from this arrangement and is part of the rich academic life and research generated in both places. The CEU Budapest Campus hosts – apart from GIAS, IAS, and OSUN – the bi-campus library, the Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives, the Summer University (SUN), the Democracy Institute, and a number of research centers and projects.
