Thanks for visiting my personal blog and website. I am a lecturer in Central and East European Studies and Global Security at the University of Glasgow. I use this blog to publish and archive slightly longer commentary pieces dealing with UK, EU, Hungarian and international politics, culture and history, as well as day-to-day academic life. The site is very new so please bear with me as I start to populate it. If you would rather just read a shorter post then please check out my twitter account (@eamonn_butler). Feel free to comment.
