THE HUNGARIAN FAR RIGHT IN LIGHT OF THE ELECTION RESULTS
Péter Krekó, Executive Director of the Political Capital Institute in Budapest, social psychologist and political scientist
Moderation: Ivan Krastev, political scientist, Chairman of the Centre for Liberal Strategies in Sofia and Permanent Fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna
As the last Hungarian elections and its results indicated, the Hungarian far-right, that was rather marginal back to ten years ago, have become the mainstream in Hungarian politics, and gave a route to an authoritarian, illiberal regime-building. What are the social reasons for this? How much the Hungarian case is specific, and how much it fits to the international, global trends, the "populist zeitgeist"? What is the nature of Hungarian far-right narratives? How much is it becoming a trend-setter in CEE and in broader Europe? My presentation, based on a recently published book, aims to explore these trends.
