Since summer 2017, the VERITAS Research Institute for History and Archives has partnered with numerous other university archives and several higher education institutions in a multiyear project that aims to look at the impact that the Treaty of Trianon and the numerus clausus laws of the 1920’s had on Hungarian higher education.
