The popularity of the Fidesz government in Hungary—as well as the recent election of the Law and Justice Party in Poland and the move of France's Front National from the periphery to the center of French politics— forces us to consider whether Europe is undergoing a wider political right-turn.

Experts on the panel will discuss the roots and the implications of the rise of right-wing parties in Hungary, Poland and France. What does that right-turn mean for those respective nations, and, more generally, for Europe?
