Our research aims to explore the major anxieties and fears of the Hungarian society. Besides introducing the fears Hungarians feel about their personal lives, our results also offer an understanding of what potential threats to the country and global dangers Hungarians are most concerned about. The current list of Hungary's biggest problems as well as the Hungarians' expectations about the next ten years will be presented.
After the presentation of our new research, an online panel will take place. Our distinguished guests will discuss how politics can respond to the major concerns of the Hungarians.
