Following the founding of the Central European University by George Soros, the Central European University Press was established in 1993.

Publisher Frances Pinter established the Central European University Press during her time as head of Soros' Open Society Institute's international publishing programme.

Publishing ProgrammeEdit

Reflecting the intellectual strengths and values of its parent institution, the Press has since 1993 published books by authors from around the world in a wide range of subjects in the Humanities and Social Sciences, including political philosophy and practices of open society, history, Jewish studies, economics, medieval studies, literature, legal studies, nationalism, human rights, political science, international relations, higher education policy, gender studies, media studies, and art history.

Uniquely positioned between East and West, the Press established itself as a leader in the history of communism and the transitions to democracy and is widely seen as the lead English language publishing university press dedicated to research connected to, and coming out of central and eastern Europe with its distinctive regional flavor.
