In this year’s summer months volunteers represented practically the only help to refugees stranded at Budapest’s Keleti railway station. Many were students who didn’t hesitate to use their time and own funds in such a way. Direct participants, university students and teachers from the Hungary and the Czech Republic, will share their experiences and debate the role universities have had and should have in Europe’s ongoing refugee crisis.
