Hungary, Sixty Years After the Revolution


Last updated September 13, 2016

By Tina Underwood

2011 Furman graduate Claire Greenstein and 2012 Furman graduate Brandon Tensley have authored their third article for Foreign Affairs, a publication of the Council on Foreign Relations. In it, the authors describe how 60 years following the revolution, liberal Hungarians find themselves fighting for many of the same changes that their parents and grandparents demanded in 1956. Both alumni received a bachelor’s in political science and German studies. In 2015, Tensley was awarded his Master of Philosophy in Politics from the University of Oxford, and was a 2015-16 Luce Scholar in Asia. Claire Greenstein is a Ph.D. candidate in comparative politics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a 2015–16 Fellow in the Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies at the Freie Universität Berlin.
