Humanism and the Refugees

On 8 September 2015, Hungarian NGO-s, including the Hungarian Europe Society, in a joint statement, asked the Hungarian government to acknowledge humanitarian aspects when dealing with the refugees and expressed their gratitude to the volunteers for their work. 

This year once again HES organised the meetings in Budapest and an excursion to the countryside for the fellows of the German Marshall Fund between 1-5 May 2015.
István Hegedűs represented HES at the conference entitled European Forum on Media Freedom organised by European Alternatives on 13 May 2011 in the Italian city.
"The creation of a Europe-wide database of NGO-s supporting the development of European integration, as well as a database on private foundations and other sponsors ready to support them, would highly assist the activities and horizontal cooperation in this field.
