Zoltan Kesz is the Director of Operations at the Hungarian Civitas Institute, which promotes democracy, human rights, civil liberties and European integration, as well as the honorary president of the Free Market Foundation, which he helped to found. From February 2015 until 2018, he served as an independent Member of Parliament in Hungary, after he won a by-election, thereby depriving the Fidesz party of Hungarian PM Viktor Orbán of its two thirds supermajority.

In this eighth episode of the Brussels Report podcast, editor Pieter Cleppe discusses with him:

– The rule of law situation in Hungary

– Hungary’s relationship with China and Russia

– The influence of the EU and other European governments

– The economic challenges for Hungary
