Shut down
Hungary’s free media and the case of Klubrádió

Réka Kinga Papp

Deutsche Fassung


In Hungary, the regime under Viktor Orbán has been systematically curtailing media freedoms for the last ten years. One of the last independent voices was the Klubrádió radio channel. Klubrádió has been under pressure for a long time, and now, its license has been withdrawn. The journalists are not giving up, and will fight the decision in court. However, doing battle with the regime comes at a high price.
