Conference: What kind of EU do Hungarians want?

We cordially invite you to the book launch of “What kind of EU do Hungarians want?” – a new publication of Policy Solutions, supported by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung.

This comprehensive survey reveals what the EU means for Hungarians in 2023, what they consider to be the most important advantages and disadvantages of EU membership, and how they assess the economic impact of EU membership. In particular, we focus on how Hungarian voters perceive current trends in the European Union and what changes they would like to see in the EU's priorities. We also show what Hungarian voters think EU funds should be spent on, and what they think about EU enlargement.

In a panel discussion following the presentation of the new study, renowned EU experts will help interpret the findings.

Date and time of the event: 21 September 2023 (Thursday), 10:00-12:00

Venue: Európa Pont (1024 Budapest, Lövőház utca 35.)
