Advocate Mate Published in The Jerusalem Post

Young Voices Advocate Mate Hajba was published today by The Jerusalem Post writing about the problems and threats refugees have to face in Hungary:

The EU direly needs to ease the immigration process, and Hungary has its own issues to resolve. More interaction is needed with foreigners, and the government must make conditions better by granting more open facilities, and not imprison peaceful and innocent refugees.

There should be a thorough investigation of abuse cases. In addition Hungary should look beyond its borders to find examples of solutions. The few facilities Hungary actually has are overcrowded, badly managed, and many of them are prison-like. Easing immigration processes would reduce the time refugees have to stay in such camps, require fewer capacities and overall ease the situation in such camps.

Roeder and Tatala Published in Forbes on the Hungarian Disease

Young Voices Director Fred Roeder and Marek Tatala were published in Forbes writing about pension reforms:

In September of this year, Polish prime minister Donald Tusk announced his intention to undo pension system reforms and seize parts of the mandatory private pension funds. If implemented, this plan will lead to a pension fund nationalization a la Hungary under Victor Orban and Argentina under the Kirchners. The law would undo the successful achievements of the Polish transformation since 1989, which was achieved through privatization and not nationalization.
