At the annual meeting of the Hungarian Europe Society István Hegedűs was re-elected as chairman of the organisation on 3 November 2011. Jerzy Celichowski and Györgyi Kocsis have become the two vice-chairpersons.
István Hegedűs was quoted in Foreign Policy on 31 March 2022 on the Hungarian elections saying among others that "Marki-Zay is a good speaker, but he did make some mistakes, and I think there is a lack of a strong team and expertise behind him".
István Hegedűs was interviewed on 28 July 2020 in an article published by aktualne.cz, Chech news portal on the latest pressure used by the Hungarian government on the independence of the biggest Hungarian online newspaper.
Györgyi Kocsis gave an interview to Klubrádió on 15 March 2019 about the manifesto signed by more than hundred Hungarian NGO-s, the Hungarian Europe Society among them, in which they declare their common values.
The views of István Hegedűs were quoted in the report of the Süddeutsche Zeitung about Viktor Orbán's political turns on 15 July 2018. Hegedűs remembers above all Orbán's will to power driven by a mix of pragmatism and mission, the chairman of the Hungarian Europe Society claimed among others.
