Mit der ungarischen Nation in Mitteleuropa
With the Hungarian Nation into Central Europe
Languages of publication
The term ‘Central Europe’ can be nowadays reflected on as part of Europe. Rethinking the concept of nation is realistic and important for the ten countries who joined the EU in 2004 from two perspectives: on the one hand in the relation to the pace and quality of catching up with the Western part of Europe, on the other hand in the context of the European participation in the process of globalization. Namely, only the Europe of nations can be a guarantee against the negative effects of Americanisation, therefore it is necessary that in the period of catching up the representation of cultural heritage should also be a decisive factor beside economic processes. Only a Europe with a human face and based on the principle of community is able to play the role of a balance in the current world political processes, which also requires the re-evaluation of the structure and role of the current European Union. In my paper I am examining the social, cultural and political processes taking place in East-Central Europe in the last two hundred years from the above point of view.
