At 6 PM on March 5th, 2019, we host the forty-second installment of the VERITAS Debate Nights series at the VERITAS home office on Zsil Street. The title of the debate is Hungarian–Yugoslav Diplomatic Relations between 1990 and 1994. István Őszi, retired Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary (The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the Republic of Slovenia), and our colleague Zoltán Dévavári familiarize the audience with the topic, while VERITAS Deputy Director Endre Marinovich leads the discussion.
The two men discuss the root causes of the breakup of Yugoslavia, mapping out the road that led to dissolution. They share personal memories, impressions and experiences, as well as examine the risks and opportunities Hungarian diplomacy faced as Yugoslavia fell apart. Finally they talk about the political, economic and social situation of the Hungarians who resided in Vojvodina and the other regions that had belonged to the Kingdom of Hungary.
