National Policy and Community Building in the European Union – Researchers’ Night in NPKI – 2021.
1016 Budapest, Gellérthegy utca 30-32.
Headquarter of Gábor Bethlen Fund Management Ltd.
Event reportWith this event, the National Policy Research Institute illustrated the issues and challenges affecting European minorities by presenting the everyday life of communities. The results of NPKI’s research to date show that comprehensive research to help the minority community is still needed. The NPKI therefore proposes that the European Union provide broad funding for small-scale research in the future. Support their linguistic and regional diversity at European level by providing them with a platform within the EU’s institutional set-up. The preservation of the European values mentioned above is not only a public task, but also an EU task, which requires continuous exchange of views and cooperation in order to defend them. Cultural anthropologist Clifford Geertz wrote: “if we want to understand a science, we don't have to look at its theories first, and certainly not what its adherents say about it — we have to look at what those who do in practice do.” This year’s Night of Researchers presented the activities of the National Policy Research Institute from this perspective, especially with regard to softer, qualitative data collection techniques. The staff of the research institute selected four interviews: two with Hungarians living in the Carpathian Basin; and we made two of them with people living outside the Carpathian Basin, living in diaspora. With these we wanted to give a taste of what we do when we do minority research. Our aim was also to provide an insight into the everyday life of Hungarians abroad with the answers to our questions. Our interlocutors were played by the actress of the Katona József Theatre, Eszter Kiss. The questions were asked by researchers who made the original interviews, Emese Vita, Viktória Ferenc and Dániel Gazsó. Tamás Németh’s guitar solo helped to adjust from one interview to another. After that, we held a quiz with questions about Hungarians from abroad. Finally, the event was closed with wine: With the participation of Mihály Konkoly international wine academy, we held a tasting with the exciting wines of winemakers across the border.
