A look at how the EU Parliament addresses minority rights.

April’s program offers a unique perspective on the workings of the EU Parliament. Many Hungarians living in the Diaspora know about the challenges faced by Hungarians living in minority status in the Carpathian Basin. This lecture will give us the opportunity to learn how the EU Parliament attempts to address the tension between minority rights and majority policies.

So we invite you to join us for our next program:

A Májusi programnak témája a Magyar népmése!

A Hungarikum Bizottság úgy döntött, hogy a Magyar népmese filmsorozat nemzeti érték, és így hungarikummá nyilvánították.

A Magyar népmesének szépségét fogjuk a Májusi programunk keretén belül bemutatni.
