BIO

Ferenc‘s present research and policy initiative is dedicated to addressing certain dimensions of silencing, self-censorship, and intimidation in academia. This approach involves implementing a mentoring system designed for scholars at risk. A crucial objective of this initiative is to introduce and implement an information technology-based communication system into the academic publication process.

At THE NEW INSTITUTE, Ferenc serves as a Yehudit and Yehuda Elkana Fellow in the Academic Year 2023/24.
