Project Title: 
István Bibó: A Hungarian Democrat
Project Abstract: 

The objective is to collect source material and start writing a comprehensive intellectual biography of the most important Hungarian political thinker of the second part of the 20th century, István Bibó. He is regarded as the most important political scientist or philosopher-historian to whose insights Hungarian political thinkers and politicians incessantly refer in the present crisis of Hungarian democracy. It is also to be noted that there is not yet available a single book-length intellectual biography written by an 'outsider' on him either in Hungarian, in English or in Finnish although his importance as the thinker of the 'third way' is internationally recognized.
