Date: 26 June 2018 (Tuesday), 10.00-12.30
Venue: Budapest Music Center (Budapest, Mátyás u. 8, 1093)
What are the attitudes of the Hungarian society towards poverty, wealth inequality, unemployed people and strikers? Do Hungarians support higher taxes or wealth tax? Do we trust state more than private companies? What are the economic values of the society?
Would Hungarians reintroduce death penalty? Do we support abortion? Do we consider that world is a dangerous place? Do we believe in integration of Roma people? Do we support equality between men and women? What are the social values of the society?
In our new research, we present the political values of the Hungarian society and set up new political value categories to better describe the political views of the Hungarians. In this event, we proudly present our new study based on the results of this research.
