Hungary’s Slide toward Autocracy: Domestic and External Impediments to Locking In Democratic Reforms
DAVID G. HAGLUND, JENNIE L. SCHULZE, AND Ognen Vangelov trace the remarkable trajectory of post-Communist Hungary over the past three decades, when the onetime “poster country” for successful liberalization in the erstwhile Soviet bloc managed to turn into the leading champion of illiberalism in the entire European Union (EU). They argue that a combination of internal and exogenous factors vitiated the earlier promise of EU “conditionality” to bring about Hungary’s transition to a stable liberal democracy. They are grateful for suggestions made by anonymous reviewers of earlier drafts of this article, as well as by Professor Zsuzsa Csergö, of Queen’s University.
