Subject of discussion were the relations between the University of Maribor and Hungarian higher education institutions, with special emphasis on teaching Hungarian language at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Maribor. Everyone agreed that special care and approach to tackling the challenges related to minority languages is required throughout the European Union, specifically in the neighbourly relations between Slovenia and Hungary.
