Hungary holds parliamentary elections on 3 April 2022. On the same day Serbia holds general elections. On 10 April France holds presidential election.
The war rages in Ukraine and its consequences are unpredictable. Although foreign policy does not constitute primary electoral concern, this time it is different: the consequences of the war in Ukraine are affecting the whole of Europe and politicians use the times of uncertainty for their own promotion. What could be the war’s impact on the results of the coming elections? Can opposition candidates compete with politicians who hold power, when citizens’ immediate concerns are safety and protection?

Concept and Moderation
Mirjana Tomić, fjum
