New international guest teachers join Mathias Corvinus Collegium

The Mathias Corvinus Collegium (MCC) Visiting Fellowship Program is constantly expanding.

An important pillar of Mathias Corvinus Collegium’s talent development activities is to expand international relations and increase the international visibility of the institution through training programs such as the MCC Visiting Fellowship Program. 

In 2020, MCC launched the program to provide opportunities for outstanding foreign (and Hungarian expatriate) researchers and professors to conduct research and teach in Budapest and other regional centers.

Under the program, MCC students can listen to lectures by renowned foreign experts whom they would not normally have the opportunity to meet in traditional higher education. MCC is committed to the interests and development of talented students, and its primary goal is to provide young people with a unique European perspective.

Three more international experts have joined the Foundation’s talent management team, including Sergey Andreyev, who specializes in strategic analysis and conflict studies. He has taught South and Central Asian history and Islamic studies at Oxford University, King’s College London and the University of North London. From 1999 to 2021, he served intermittently in various UN peacekeeping and political missions in Afghanistan, Sudan, Iraq and Darfur, where he was head of an analysis center. In 2017, he was elected president of the Consociatio Eruditorum Studiis Afganologicis Internationalibus.

David R. Hodge is an associate professor at the Arizona State University Institute of Social Work. He also works in the “Religion and Urban Civil Society” research program at the University of Pennsylvania, the Institute for the Study of Religion at Baylor University, and the Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health at the Duke University Medical Center’s Center for the Aging. 

Diego Muro is a lecturer on international relations at the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence, University of St Andrews. His research interests include political violence, terrorism, nationalism and secession.
