Should We Learn From Hungary?

Co-organizers: UCL Hungarian and European Horizons Society
Date: October 31. (18:00-19:30)
Venue Christopher Ingold Building G21, Ramsay LT

Speaker: Dr Thomas Lorman
He has obtained his Ph.D from the School of Slavonic and East European Studies in 2001 for a dissertation that examined high politics in Hungary in the early 1920s. Then he taught a range of European history courses at the University of Cincinnati from 2003-2010. Then he returned to SSEES where he published his most recent book, the History of the Hungarian Constitution.

Following the Brexit referendum, the need for Britain to understand her European neighbours better has become even clearer. It is, however, still uncertain what a better understanding of our neighbours means and what it could, and should, translate into. In this talk, I will look at the case of Hungary to discuss what Britain can learn from the history, culture and politics of this important Central European country.
