Welcome to a Civita event at Litteraturhuset
Monday March 19th 18.00—19.30.
The Hungarian government is often critizised for it’s authoritarianism. How should we understand that allegation? And what are the implications for the Hungarian society at large? Moreover, if the critics are right, how do we explain the anatomy and history of modern day illiberalism? What are the consequences for civil society? The Hungarian researcher and blogger Eszter Nova will present her view in a thought provoking talk. Following Novas talk Eva Sarfi and Gabi Gleichmann will share their thoughts on the political situation in Hungary.
The panelists are: Eszter Nova, a Political Economy Fellow at the Financial Research Plc. in Budapest.

She is also a known blogger, Eva Sarfi, assisistant professor at the Department of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages, University of Oslo and Gabi Gleichmann, author.
