Conference: Hopes, Aspirations and Fears in Hungary

We cordially invite you to the book launch of "Hopes, Aspirations and Fears – A Comprehensive Survey of Hungarians in 2023”, a new publication of Policy Solutions, supported by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung.

Our research aims to explore the major hopes and fears of the Hungarian society in 2023. 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 20 years will be presented.

After the presentation of our new research, a panel discussion will take place. Our distinguished guests will discuss how politics can respond to the major concerns and desires of the Hungarians.
