Abstract : Hungary is situated in a region where national animosities, deep- frozen under socialism, are still running high, and tolerance for ethnic and religious minorities has not yet become the rule. The changed international environment requires a new security policy. In the history of the countries of Eastern Europe a new chapter was opened with the political and economic changes of the past four years. The security system built up and accepted by the two military alliances--NATO and the Warsaw Treaty organization--and based on military force, has broken down, and the ideological struggle--based on the division of Europe--practically ceased. The Cold War era, which followed World War II and lasted for 40 years, is over. Political events in Hungary have speeded up. Hungary has made a gradual, peaceful transition from dictatorship to democracy, but the economic miracle, the transformation of a rigid, planned economy into a prosperous one, is still far from accomplished. This study will examine the developing concept of Hungarian security policy.
