The Hungarian Election: What Just Happened?

Event Description

The parliamentary elections on 3 April 2022 offer the most significant challenge yet to the autocratic rule of Viktor Orbán, Prime Minister of Hungary since 2010. The opposition parties have united across the political spectrum to unseat Orbán under his own rigged election rules, and it is not impossible that Orbán could lose. On the day after the election, we will take stock of whether autocracy continues without a break in Hungary or a new democratic resurgence has begun.

An event dedicated to the memory of Eva Balogh
