Gyula Kodolányi talks to Hungarian Review

May 1990: József Antall Launches His Government – A Hungarian Review Interview – Part I

"I would emphasise his ability to take a broad view; his empathy; his imagination, which provided him with many extraordinary ideas; and his sense of humour, including at his own expense. His knowledge as a historian gave him a great practical advantage in solving problems, for instance in parliamentary tactics. Although his opponents, particularly the opposition media, sought to depict him as a ”dour historian”, he used history as a practical tool. He was familiar with centuries of Hungary’s history and mentality; he was also knowledgeable about European history and Western thought."


Viktor Orbán

Notes Towards a Definition of Civic Conservatism – Reflections on Five Years of Governance

"We have cleared away the rubble and the obstacles left from the past and we have continued and completed the transition from Communism. Now we have got to the point at which we can realise our shared goal: civic consolidation.Thirty years ago we thought that it would be enough for the Soviet troops to leave. We could transform ourselves into a democratic multiparty system and market economy and there would be nothing more to do. Now we know that the task is far more complicated, and we also know that a civic governance is not just about ideals."

What Drives Kosovo Refugees to Hungary?

"The control of the Serbian–Hungarian frontier was made more severe last week: the number of Serbian border guards was significantly increased and police units were also dispatched to the region. But the Kosovo refugees who disappeared in the thickets are already on the territory of the European Union."


Mark Almond

Hungary's Double Migration Crisis Is Also Europe's Problem

"Through the Balkans another wave of migration into the EU has been gathering pace in 2015. Hungary is the EU’s front-line state whose southern border with Serbia is the point of access to the EU’s Schengen zone for tens of thousands of migrants. The 54,000 or so who have been accepted in Hungary are at least as many per capita as Italy has received so far this year."


David Goodhart

Has the Left Had Its Day? - Yesterday’s Big Ideas Enter the Wrong Tomorrow

"The 2015 British election was a turning point for the Labour party from which it is hard to see it recovering in its present form. Moreover, there is no obvious centre left success story elsewhere in Europe which might provide a guide and inspiration for a Labour recovery. The temporary advance of harder left parties like Syriza and Podemos is unlikely to survive contact with economic realities and, in any case, is just further competition for the moderate left."


László Földi

A Note on the Great Migrations in the 21st Century

"Every historical event has its causes, and the current turmoil accompanying the movement of large human masses is no exception. Considered by many a refugee problem, today’s mass migrations have in fact been brought about by the inconsiderate financial and economic globalisation of the last hundred years or so. Led by the United States, the Western world brought under its control the underdeveloped regions, mainly those of Africa."
