No. 26 | (Summer 1995)

In the contest of the emptiest banalities used in the past five to six years, slogans about Europe probably are at the top. In this issue of Eszmélet, we present our readers selected articles on the European Union that help in making an attempt to separate illusions of the 90s from existing alternatives. The authors analyse what are the directions in the development of European integration and what are the lessons from the latest expansion of the Union in 1994. In addition to the development of the regional setting of Hungary, it is also important that the domestic cultural sector has cracked. Public personalities of the Hungarian cultural sector speak up about it and also writings of foreign authors might help in the analysis.
