About Hungary losing its freedoms


In this year’s parliamentary elections, Viktor Orbán has become the Prime Minister of Hungary for the fourth time in a row. The April elections thus confirmed the course the country has been following for the past few years, to the dismay of not only the liberal part of Hungarian society. Orbán's conservative government has been consistently restricting the rights of LGBT+ people and women, bending democratic principles and undermining the freedom of the media. We spoke to scholar Dorottya Rédai, whose field of interest – gender studies – has been banned from Hungarian universities since 2018, about how (un)free contemporary Hungary really is.
