Welcome to the website of the Research Institute for National Strategy. The 21st century holds in store a special challenge for Hungarians living in the Carpathian Basin. This challenge, which is addressed to all Hungarians, is called national integration. To achieve this, we have to overcome almost a hundred years of conditioning, and in this we can hope for little external support.
In 2010, the Act on the Testimony for National Cohesion and the bonds of Hungarian citizenship laid the foundation in public law for building a new national community from the Hungarian nation scattered across the world. The new Fundamental Law, which emphasises the responsibility borne by the Hungarian state for ethnic Hungarians living beyond Hungary’s borders, has also been adopted. Following the European and Euro-Atlantic integration in the 20th century, the time for national integration has come at last.
The Research Institute for National Strategy aims to establish a national strategy which affords an opportunity for the intellectual, emotional and economic energies of Hungarians living in the Carpathian Basin and scattered throughout the world to join together at last. I trust that this website will help you learn about our aims and tasks, and broaden your understanding of the notion of national integration.
I hope that you will find browsing these pages worthwhile.
