Hungary: Their backs to the wall: Civil society under pressure in Hungary
In 2014, Hungarian NGOs came under a sustained attack by the Hungarian government, which has impeded their ability to carry out their activities, had a chilling effect on the right to freedom of association and eroded the space for civil society. Events escalated quickly from allegations by politicians against NGOs to the initiation of legal processes that could ultimately lead to the closure of these groups. It is crucial that the Hungarian authorities desist from their campaign against independent voices in civil society and that the EU and the international community insist that they do so.
