Hungary has been characterized by an increasingly authoritarian political regime and a highly restrictive and oppressive social environment since 2010. With the reelection of Fidesz for the fourth time in the spring of 2022, there seems to be little chance for a breakthrough for progressive forces at the national level. However, in 2019 there was an opening in political opportunities at the local level when many progressive candidates and organizations made important gains in the local elections, especially in Budapest and other bigger cities. The trainings of the School of Public Life and the community-based, municipalist electoral campaign methodology that we have developed proved essential for many of the winning candidates. With the help of this grant, we would like to continue this work and organize a series of trainings in community-based municipal campaigning for progressive grassroots candidates and supporting organizations in preparation for the 2024 local elections.
