"The Illiberal Threat Within the European Union" with Bálint Magyar

How has the trend towards illiberal democracy developed in the European Union in recent years and how has it affected the internal operations of the EU?

Bálint Magyar discusses about the decline of the rule of law in Hungary and Poland in recent years and how these illiberal states have resisted the EU’s push for democratic reforms. Magyar is a Hungarian political economist and scholar and author of the upcoming book, The Anatomy of Post-Communist Regimes: A Conceptual Framework. He was an anti-communist dissident activist, a founder of the Liberal Party of Hungary, a member of the Hungarian Parliament from 1990 to 2010, serving twice as his country’s Minister of Education.
