Assessing the Impact of Hungary’s New Constitution and Laws
May 16, 2013
This 29-page report analyzes the new constitution and laws and their negative effects on human rights and the rule of law. It shows how the government has largely ignored criticism from the EU and the Council of Europe and, through further constitutional changes, sought to reverse binding rulings by Hungary’s Constitutional Court upholding fundamental rights. The report finds that the changes run counter to Hungary’s legal obligations as a member of the EU and the Council of Europe.
