Adrienn Kiss (LEGS '20, Hungary)

September 27, 2019

Adrienn graduated in social policy from ELTE University and attended a one-year training in psychotherapy in Budapest. She has 13 years of experience as a social worker providing psycho-social support mainly to refugees and migrants. She also participated in migration-related research projects conducted by UNHCR and national NGOs, specializing in the fields of homelessness among refugees, unreturnable migrants in community shelter and rehabilitation services for torture survivors. This year she's studying at CEU's human rights program.

What's one thing people should know about you?

I believe that no human being is illegal.

Why did you choose your particular course of study?

Because a structured understanding on human rights issues would enable me to conduct research on the legal categorization of human mobility linked to climate crisis.

What do you hope to gain from your time at CEU?

I hope that the one-year program will help me to transit from practical field work to academic research and to connect to the vibrant CEU community.
