Illiberal Democracies? Hungary and Romania in Interwar Europe

17th June 2019, 17:45 to 18:45, Gala Theatre, Durham, James Koranyi

Since the emergence of self-styled illiberal democracies in east-central Europe, most prominently in Hungary and Poland, observers have noted that east-central European societies simply have no history of democracy to boast of and therefore revert to type. This talk questions that view and discovers another story.

A season of events celebrating the history, art and culture of County Durham, organised in partnership by Durham County Council and the Centre for Visual Arts and Culture.
