Our report, “Dismantling Democracy: Hungary’s Assault on Civil Society“, highlights the aggressive measures taken by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s government against civil society and democratic safeguards. As Hungary gears up for significant municipal and European elections, understanding these actions is critical for evaluating their broader implications.


Discussion Focus: This briefing will offer timely analysis on the implications of the recent European Parliament elections. We will discuss:

  • How election outcomes might influence democracy within the European Union.
  • The role of far-right parties in shaping European policies.
  • Strategic recommendations for international actors to support democratic resilience in Hungary and across the European Union.

Join us for an insightful session that bridges our comprehensive report findings with the latest election results, providing a clear picture of the ongoing challenges and the path forward for democracy in Europe, and the potential impacts on democracies worldwide.
