Hungary’s EU Council Presidency

All rights reserved

In our Power Lunch session, András Rász and Thu Nguyen assess the prospects for Hungary’s council presidency under these circumstances. We explore whether Viktor Orban’s government can act as an honest broker for the EU given its illiberal system and close ties to Kremlin politics and how to protect and enforce the core values of the EU in times of global threats to democracies and the rule of law.
