Working Paper by Bognar, Sik and Suranyi Published by TARKI
“The case of Hungary – de Wilde goes wild” written by Éva Bognár, Endre Sik and Ráchel Surányi was published by TARKI and it analyzes the characteristics of politicization of the public debate in Hungary surrounding the EU quota of refugees. It focuses on two major disputes: the ‘quota debate’ of 2015 and the ‘quota referendum’ of 2016 and it analyzes data on public opinion during these years.
The research was conducted in the framework of the CEASEVAL project. Since 2015, migration to and within Europe has challenged the adequacy of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS). This has affected the implementation of both the CEAS and national asylum systems and called further harmonization into question. CEASEVAL will determine what kind of harmonization and solidarity is possible and necessary. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.
