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.

About our Institute
The primary objective of the Institute for Political Science of MTA Centre for Social Sciences is to conduct basic research in political science. Researchers at the Institute conduct both theoretical and empirical research, and the results are disseminated to both the academic and general public at scientific and professional forums.
On the occasion of the Researchers’ Night 2017, we launched the PTIblog which is designed to be the main online platform for communicating our activities towards the general public. The entries (available in Hungarian) have been being published twice a month. All represent the very best essence of our research products. The aim is to provide short, jargon-free but strictly evidence-based reflections to politics. The covered topics (so far) are the hybrid regimes, contentious politics, right wing radicalism, leadership, populism, political thoughts, party politics, political behaviour and many more.
