IR-Multiling National Report: Hungary

Publication Type: 
Working Paper
Based on an extensive desk research, this report begins with an overview of the social and historic context of linguistic diversity in Hungary. The report pays special attention to migration as primary source of linguistic diversity, and the presence of immigrant workers in the country, especially in terms of their geographic and sectorial presence. The report also presents the existing and unfolding public discourses on migration during the time of the desk research (anti-immigrant rhetoric of the government after the 2015 refugee crisis). The second part of the report provides an overview of the legislative and industrial relations landscape, with a historic overview and the analysis of the current situation, presenting the main actors and partners on the labor relations scene in Hungary and their specific roles in a changing context.
