Hungarian youth increasingly disengaged from politics and public life

A panel of experts put together by Magyar Nemzet reveals that Hungary’s younger generation is disenchanted by public life and unlikely to be involved in politically-related activities.

Sociologist Andrea Szabó claims that those between the ages of 15-29 widely believe politics to be thoroughly corrupt and politicians to be liars.

The professional consensus of the experts is that “students who express a definitive political opinion may be stigmatized by their peers, and as a result there are very few who are actively engaged in politics.”
