Euroscepticism in the shadow of Putin


Thu Jun 16 2022 at 10:00 am to 01:00 pm


Magvető Café | Budapest, BU

Conference about the Euroscepticism with international experts in Hungary, organised by ELF and hosted by Republikon Institute.
About this Event

The aim of the conference is to identify the social roots and political context of the new Euroscepticism and offer a liberal framework to challenge it. Why do pro-EU voters support Eurosceptic regimes? What are the political opportunities these regimes can exploit for their benefits? During the first section, we would like to invite international speakers from Poland, Italy and the Czech Republic to discuss the core of this new kind of Euroscepticism. We would like to highlight the consequences of the Russian disinformation campaign, and the Russian-Ukraine war.
