The future of constitutionalism in Hungary and Poland

After two decades of democratic consolidation, two member states of the European Union, Hungary and Poland are now in the process of authoritarian backsliding. The presentation will describe the current state of affairs (from the lack of persistent and long term mobilisation on behalf of constitutionalism to the governmental attacks on the internal and external checks, e.g. the European Union and ECHR) and address the possible scenarios of returning to constitutional democracy in the region.
