We cordially invite you to the book launch of “Hungary’s Political Compass 2022”, – a new publication of Policy Solutions, supported by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung. In our research, we used a 28-question political compass to measure the degree to which different worldviews are represented in Hungarian society. We not only looked at how Hungarians feel about a wide range of issues after the 2022 elections, from taxation to abortion, but also at what has changed over the course of the last four years. By combining economic and social value categories, we also show how Hungarians can be classified into complex value groups.
After the presentation of our new research, a panel discussion will take place. Our distinguished guests will discuss what the values of Hungarian society imply for politics.
Date and time of the event: 21 October 2022 (Friday), 10:00-11:30
