by Giorgi Labadze

United States party politics continue to place a high priority on foreign policy, and more specifically, subsidizing Ukraine. The House minority leader, as well as one of the leading Republicans in Congress, recently told the media, “I think people are going to be sitting in a recession and they’re not going to write a blank check to Ukraine.”

The EU and the Western Balkans: it is a complete impasse?

by István Vass

In her annual State of the Union Address, Ursula von der Leyen named the countries which have to join the European Union as soon as possible. Among them, President von der Leyen highlighted Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia. The potential candidacy of these three post-Soviet states is naturally enhanced by the Russian-Ukrainian conflict on the EU’s immediate border. On the other hand, the Western Balkan (WB) countries – who had waited long for EU membership – only mentioned by the European Commission (EC) President as an unspecified block. This tells a lot about the EU’s own commitment to this region.

The prohibition on the use of force is still breathing

From time to time, especially in the midst of an ongoing armed conflict, commentators point out, that international legal principles and norms are guiding principles at best, and the most important rules, such as the general prohibition on the use of force, which is enshrined in Article 2(4) of the United Nations’ Charter and customary international law, possibly with a peremptory character are ineffective.



Our mission is to bridge the gap between Hungarian and European experts and eliminate linguistic obstacles by sharing our knowledge, skills, and extensive network.


Our professional efforts are based on two pillars:

  • create an independent, nonpartisan Hungarian foreign policy forum that will help Hungarian researchers to gain a foothold on the international ground of security and defense policy.
  • foster a constructive dialogue and exchange of ideas, respectively partnership with other foreign policy organizations abroad.

Our scientific activities include book and study reviews, as well as the release of excerpts in English language.  We are determined to nurture talent.


The Dialogue for Regional Security and Science is an international networking project founded and maintained by the Külügyi Műhely Alapítvány. We operate in accordance with the guidelines, laid down by the founder. Külügyi Műhely Alapítvány (hereinafter: the Foundation) was established in Budapest in 2018. Since then, it has emerged as a leading actor in the Hungarian academic life.


The Foundation's scientific online journal is issued twice a year. The publication is intended to provide in-depth analysis of international events and analysis of Hungary's external relations. Its aim is to provide academics, researchers, professionals, along with university students (including postgraduate and doctoral students) a forum to present and publish their scientific findings.
