New leadership at the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union

Stefánia Kapronczay, the former Head of Patients’ Rights Program, is the new Executive Director of the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU).

The HCLU held an extraordinary general assembly on 18 July 2013, where the executive committee was revoked and a new one was elected. The members of the new executive committee are Ferenc Bagyinszky (Head of HIV / AIDS Program 2008-), Eszter Jovánovics (former member of the executive committee and Head of Roma Program 2009-), Stefánia Kapronczay (Head of Patients’ Rights Program from 2008 to 2012), Szabolcs Miklós Sánta (attorney, working at the HCLU 2008-), Éva Simon (former member of the executive committee 2009-2013, Head of Freedom of Speech Program).

Stefánia Kapronczay graduated from the Faculty of Law at ELTE, also completed a five-year master program in sociology in 2010. Kapronczay was the Head of the Patients’ Rights Program of the HCLU from March 2008 to August 2012. Between August 2012 and July 2013 she was a scholar at Stanford University, attending courses in human rights and graduating as Master of the Science of Law.
"Being elected to the post of Executive Director is a great honor for me. The new management of the HCLU does not mean a break in the direction represented by the former leadership. The mission and the programs of the HCLU remain the same, but the aim of the new leadership is to strengthen activism and legal defense activities based on close liaising with stakeholders, while maintaining legal advocacy activities"- said Stefánia Kapronczay, Executive Director of the HCLU.
