Uncommon Decency

Oct 29, 2020

What is "illiberal democracy"? What do Fidesz and Hungary's PM Viktor Orbán stand for? To answer those questions we have with us Mr. Schöplfin, a former Member of the European Parliament (MEP) with Fidesz, Hungary’s Christian-Democratic ruling party for 15 years. Previously, he had a long career as an academic in the UK, and will be publishing two titles this year, A Contested Europe and The European Polis. We unpack with him the trends and philosophical foundations that are transforming the EU from a project built on consensus to one based on a single proto-federalist path and a punitive approach to recalcitrant countries, not least his native Hungary.
