Field trip to Budapest

The IR-Society and the Guarini Institute for Public Affairs are organizing a field trip to Budapest from October 21st to October 24th 2016. The occasion is the 60th anniversary of the Hungarian Uprising.

Throughout the 3 days in Budapest, attendees will have the opportunity to explore one of the most beautiful capitals in Europe. For all days there is a program organized, with guided tours of the city and its most famous sites. On October 23rd, the date of the Uprising, we will visit the place where the famous insurgency took place, and where most Soviet tanks were faced off with Molotov cocktails and guns.

On the 24th of October there will be 3 very interesting discussion panels. The topics are: The UN and the 1956 Uprising on the basis of newly released documents; the Orban government and the 60th anniversary; Refugees in 1956 and today.
