The aim of the School of International Relations is to train experts who, based on their theoretical and practical knowledge of the international system, international political and economic relations and relations of interest, are able to
prepare and present analyses of foreign policy, security policy and foreign trade issues, scientific publications, decision documents and presentations.
organize national and international meetings and events,
identify and effectively represent Hungarian foreign policy, national policy, security policy and foreign economic interests.
The recent shift in world politics and the global economy makes shed light on the relevance of the work at the School of International Relations. The financial crisis of 2008-2009 can also be considered a watershed, as the process of increasing internationalisation was built on the world order that emerged after the end of the Cold War in 1990. A world order based on openness, peaceful cooperation and the importance of international trade and investment has been challenged by the financial crisis, the global pandemic, a series of trade and technological wars, but most of all by the failure of actors to play by the rules. We have entered a new era. To determine its place in this new era, Hungary needs talented, creative international relations professionals who leave behind the old structures of reasoning. The School of International Relations is aiming to contribute to this work, so that Hungary may successfully adapt to this changed world.
