News & Highlights
On May 9, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary along with the European Youth Centre in Budapest (Council of Europe) is hosting a conference on 'Opportunities for political participation of national minority youth'.

On 17 September 2022, a difficult but constructive negotiation process between the Hungarian Government and the European Commission, which lasted several months, came to an end. The negotiations were a success. The Commission has concluded that the proposed measures submitted by the Hungarian Government as a result of the discussions with the Commission address the concerns that led the Commission to open the conditionality procedure. Hungary has not lost any EU funds so far and the Commission's decision of 18 September shows that there is no risk of this happening. If the Hungarian Government delivers on its commitments, the conditionality procedure will be closed before the end of the year. The Commission's decision paves the way for a swift conclusion of the negotiations on the reconstruction fund and cohesion funds. These are on schedule to be concluded before the end of the year, so that Hungary can enter 2023 without any loss of resources.

It gave rise to a tragedy for millions of people. The European Network Remembrance and Solidarity (ENRS) is once again organising the international public educational campaign Remember. August 23 which brings the significance of those events closer to contemporary Europeans.
