MFJMCE Conversations on Europe: Assessing Democratic Backsliding in Poland and Hungary

Event information
Venue:FIU - MMC - Green Library Resources Center - GL 156


For the fourth installment of Conversations on Europe for 2019-2020 academic year, please join us for an interactive virtual roundtable discussion of Assessing Democratic Backsliding in Poland and Hungary.

Although Poland and Hungary transitioned to democracy nearly 30 years ago, there is now increasing evidence that the actions of their leaders are working to erode democracy in their respective countries. What is motivating this erosion of liberal democracy? What are the implications of these actions for democracy in these countries and in the region more generally? What is the role of the European Union in preventing democratic backsliding in two of its Member states?


Moderator: Jae-Jae Spoon, University of Pittsburgh

At FIU, the video conference will be held in the Green Library Resource Center - GL 156
