Sujit Choudhry has collaborated with several constitutionalexperts to organize a roundtable workshop that will deliberate on Hungary and Poland’s vision of recovery from authoritarian backsliding. The roundtable meeting seeks the possibility of the two countries changing the reverting to constitutional democracy. Poland and Hungary belong to Central Eastern Europe as well as the European Union.
Some of the countries within CEE have transitioned to democratic rule. Sujit Choudhry, Mattias Kumm and MichaelMeye-Resende aim at creating the understanding the prospects of recovery as well as authoritarian backsliding. They aim at making comparisons in experience from beyond and within the European Union. From the roundtable meeting, it will be easy to come up with a network of experts in constitutional matters in Hungary, Poland, USA, and other EU countries. These experts will provide analyses and advise on the authoritarian backsliding in more detail. The meeting also looks forward to the development of material that can be used by political actors, NGOs, independent institutions, Constitutional experts and other regional institutions.

Other issues that will be addressed in this meeting include political, legal, institutional, and constitutional affairs in Hungary and Poland. Authoritarian backsliding problems in other countries of the world will also play centre stage.
