ESR 5: The politicisation of commemorative practices in Eastern Europe (CUNI)

Andrzej Sadecki holds an MA in History from the Central European University in Budapest and an MA in European Studies from Jagiellonian University in Krakow, where he also studied Hungarian Philology. During his studies he received scholarships to study at the Péter Pázmány Catholic University and the Balassi Institute, both in Budapest. From 2012 to 2018 he worked as an analyst at the Centre for Eastern Studies (OSW) in Warsaw, specialising in Hungarian politics and the regional cooperation in Central Europe. His further interests revolve around the politics of memory and the issue of Hungarian minorities abroad. 

As part of the FATIGUE programme, he is researching the politics of memory in the Hungarian context with the focus on the commemoration of the treaty of Trianon. He is supervised by Maria Asavei and Jiří Vykoukal at Charles University and Jan Kubik at UCL.
