Many argue that the recent decision of British voters to leave the EU represents a decisive turning point in the history of European integration. If the post-Brexit EU is to survive, it will have to change the way it thinks about itself. At their mini-summit in Warsaw on 21 July, leaders of the Visegrad Group (Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia) have warned of widespread disillusionment with the EU project among their citizens.

The Hungarian government has introduced a referendum on the migration relocation scheme, which will be held on October 2, 2016. Citizens will vote on the following question: “Do you want the European Union to be entitled to prescribe the mandatory settlement of non-Hungarian citizens in Hungary without the consent of parliament?” Although the mandatory relocation mechanism, pushed through via a qualified majority vote at the JHA Council last September, is also opposed by other Visegrad countries, a national referendum on this issue has only been proposed in Hungary. The following report outlines migration trends and the political dynamics on this issue in Hungary, particularly in light of the outbreak of the migration crisis in the summer of 2015.
