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.

Description:
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.
