Policy Experiments, Failures and Innovations

Beyond Accession in Central and Eastern Europe

Edited by Agnes Batory, Andrew Cartwright and Diane Stone

Policy Experiments, Failures and Innovations takes a policy studies perspective in considering post-communist EU member states’ experiences since accession. The book analyses policy transfer processes and expands the new and growing sub-field of policy failure by interrogating the binary ideas of ‘failure’ and ‘success’ in the context of the Central Eastern European (CEE) transition, democratic consolidation and European Union membership.

Chapter 8: Hungarian international development policy: A case for conflicted success

András Tétényi


The European Union has played a major role in restarting the international development policies of the East Central European member states of the European Union. However, questions remain as to whether the adoption of the new policies of international development cooperation can be regarded as a policy success or failure. Focusing on Hungary, this chapter introduces the reader to Hungarian international development policy since its (re-)creation prior to the accession to the European Union, and details to what degree the best practice recommendations by international organizations are being put into practice. The chapter concludes that Hungarian international development policy is showing signs of progress, for instance by slowly increasing aid volumes since 2012, codifying the Hungarian international development law, finding sectors of genuine comparative advantage and providing support through these sectors multiannually.
