Anti-Asylum Policies of Hungary

Aszalós, Zoltán (2002). Anti-Asylum Policies of Hungary. PhD thesis The Open University.



The thesis focuses on the principal dilemma of the institution of asylum of Hungary in the post-Communist, pre-European Union era. The broader context is provided by analyses of international migration waves that reach Hungary, a presentation of the country’s international human rights obligations and a discussion of the anti-migration influence of accession to the European Union. Finally, proposals are outlined for a closer adherence to international human rights principles and for the elaboration of national asylum policy.
