No. 29 | (Spring 1996)

The first phase of the so-called systemic change namely the general disintegration seems to come to its end and new integrations of the coming era are emerging.  The relationship to NATO is a fundamental question not only security but also on political and economical grounds and not to mention the physical presence of the North Atlantic Organisation in Hungary. At the same time campaigns have been launched to have a referendum on the question of joining it. Membership in the military organisation is required to maintain security and stability argue NATO supporters.  This issue of Eszmélet also addresses questions of racism, nationalism and market reforms that can really be considered as factors threatening our security and stability.
