Professor Paul Lendvai, Austrian media veteran and refugee from the failed anti-communist uprising in Budapest/Hungary in 1956 - a fate he shares with the host of the event, Charles Gati, Senior Research Professor of European and Eurasian Studies at SAIS - spoke at Johns Hopkins. Lendvai looked at the present temptation of authoritarianism in Central and Eastern Europe less than 30 years after the fall of the Iron Curtain. With a number of Hungarians present at the event, including a former Hungarian Prime Minister, the audience attentively followed Prof. Lendvai’s reflections on the state of governance in Austria’s Eastern neighborhood.
