24th Annual Conference of the Hungarian Political Science Association

The Test of Democracy? Elections – Participation – Representation

The central theme of the 24th Annual Conference of the Hungarian Political Science Association revolves around the 2018 Hungarian parliamentary elections and its lessons for political science. Besides examining the institutional and regulatory context of the elections, the conference pays great attention to the issues of political participation and representation and to those symptoms of crisis that are related to the lack of participation. The sections of the conference aspire to highlight various aspects of elections, participation and representation and aim to draw normative and/or descriptive observations as well as discuss theoretical or empirical scholarly reflections on these issues.
