Over the last few weeks, thousands of Hungarians have been in the streets, protesting the government’s changes to the country’s constitution. On today’s second Backstory, journalist Adam LeBor joins us from Budapest to discuss why the new constitution has raised concerns within Hungary and around the world, and why the changes could affect the country’s access to economic aid from the IMF and the EU.
Adam LeBor, Budapest correspondent for the London Times and the Economist magazine, gives us an update on the political situation in Hungary, including a new law passed by parliament that gives the government tighter control over the media.
