Last year, Policy Solutions and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung launched a program entitled “Politics and Classes” in order to have a better understanding of the lifestyles, values and habits of the typical supporters of Hungarian political parties. Based on an opinion poll, 20 different social groups were identified and photographed by the internationally awarded photojournalist Ákos Stiller. For presenting the social documentary photographs an exhibition was also organised. Now the photos and the descriptions of the Hungarian voting groups are published in a bi-lingual photobook.

The book launch event starts with the opening remarks by Jan Niklas Engels (FES) and Tamás Boros (Policy Solutions), followed by the introductory speech of aesthete and film critic András Réz. The event will feature a panel discussion about the Hungarian voting groups where experts investigate the typical Hungarian voters from different perspectives. The speakers of the panel include Ákos Kozák sociologist, director of Gfk Hungary, Kornélia Magyar political analyst, director of Progressive Institute, and Ákos Stiller photojournalist at HVG. The discussion will be moderated by Szilvia Varró, journalist, director of XKK.

You can find the detailed programme of the event here.

We provide a free copy of the photobook to all participants of the event.

Participation in the event is free of charge, but registration is required. Please register before 7 June 2016 at info@policysolutions.hu.

The language of the event is English and Hungarian, interpretation is provided.
