Thatcher, Reagan and the Hungarian Compromise
25/04/2014
Past Events
Public lecture delivered by the Director of the Margaret Thatcher Foundation at the Pázmány Péter Catholic University.

This public lecture used newly-released documents from British, American and Hungarian archives to examine the policy of the British and US governments towards Hungary 1979-84. It traced the rise in Western interest in Hungary in the light of martial law in Poland. Christopher Collins used new information on the Hungarian financial crisis of 1982 and the arguments it prompted between the United States and its allies as to the policy of 'differentiation' between states in the Soviet-controlled Eastern bloc. There is discussion of Western policy during Andropov's brief ascendancy and the decision on the part of Margaret Thatcher and the British Government to promote greater contact with the East, prompting her acceptance of the long-standing Hungarian invitation to visit.
