Online event assesses the latest Hungarian elections

April 11, 2022

The panel “Assessing the Hungarian Elections: Domestic and Regional Implications” will offer perspectives from Hungarian scholars on how to understand the results of the Hungarian parliamentary elections that took place on April 3, 2022. Prof. Andrea Pető from the Department of Gender Studies will participate in the discussion, together with CEU’s professors Zsolt Enyedi and Szabolcs Pogonyi. The moderator is Myra Waterbury, from Ohio University (USA).

This was an election of particular international and regional importance, as the war in neighboring Ukraine took on a significant role in the campaign, and hopes for re-democratization in Hungary were deflated when the united opposition list failed to unseat the incumbent government. In addition, the election brought a new far-right party into parliament. The panelists will analyze these results and what they tell us about the domestic impact of regional conflict, populism and nationalist politics, and the balance between illiberalism and democracy in Hungary today.
