This Occasional Paper, authored by Tamas Dezso Ziegler, analyses the situation in Hungary and offers some suggestions for how the European Union could deal with the more and more autocratic nature of Hungary’s government. Referring to the country’s recent political development and Prime Minister Orbán’s stated desire to create an “illiberal state”, the paper also explains why the government still enjoys broad support amongst the Hungarian population.
