Europe must tackle “Orbán problem” say Reinicke and Benner

In a piece published on Project Syndicate, SPP Dean Wolfgang Reinicke and Senior Advisor Thorsten Benner call Europe to action to address Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s crackdown on civil liberties and political freedoms in Hungary. “The only way to stop him – and to protect the EU’s fundamental values, not to mention its self-respect – is to offer him a clear choice: act like a democratic statesman or become a pariah,” urge Reinicke and Benner.
