Is There Life Outside the European Union? Free At Last? - Conference


Recent behaviour of the Hungarian government led by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has raised questions whether the country is steering outside the European Union either by leaving the political and economic integration on its own decision or by provoking its expulsion by the European institutions and the other member states. There exist also mid-way potential scenarios. The consequences of the current crisis might be that Hungary remains a member state but only with marginal access to the decision-making processes on European level and with limited advantage-taking from the common financial resources.
