HUNGARY: GOVERNMENT MUST REVOKE PROHIBITION OF GENDER LEGAL RECOGNITION
The COVID-19 pandemic is exacerbating the longstanding problem of gender inequality in workplaces and the labour market in Hungary with women experiencing even higher levels of job insecurity and discrimination, a new report by Amnesty International finds.
HUNGARY: GOVERNMENT MUST NOT USE EXTRAORDINARY POWER TO ROLL BACK HUMAN RIGHTS AMID COVID-19 EMERGENCY
This Amnesty International is deeply concerned that the Hungarian government may introduce extraordinary measures by decree that are not necessary and proportionate to resolving the current public health emergency and violate human rights.
Eight Hungarian NGOs, participating in the stakeholder consultation launched by the European Commission for its first annual Rule of Law Report, trust that the EC will make concrete, enforceable recommendations to EU Member States, hence also for Hungary on how to advance rule of law in the EU.
