Bulletin of Central and Eastern Europe: Orbán’s Hungary – an attempt at a change, Igor Janke

Hungary has recently triggered very strong controversy across Europe. Viktor Orbán’s government is implementing very deep reforms whilst trying to transform the economy, the social sphere and the political paradigm. The scale of the changes is astonishing, especially when compared with the rather more passive policies carried out by the vast majority of contemporary European leaders. It gives rise to heated debate driven, in many cases, by a lack of knowledge or misunderstanding.
