On April 25th and 26th, the Center for Fundamental Rights will host CPAC Hungary, the largest conservative gathering in Hungary and internationally, for the third time. World's conservative leaders, thinkers, and influencers will reunite in Budapest. We'll welcome Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom, Santiago Abascal, president of the Spanish VOX, and US Senator Markwayne Mullin, Congressmen Andy Harris and Keith Self. This year's keynote speaker is also the Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán.

Originating in the 1970s, CPAC became the annual rally of the American Right. The first European iteration of the conference was hosted by the Center for Fundamental Rights in the Hungarian capital in 2022. The event, which centered around the values of "God, Homeland, Family" and attracted more than 1,500 people, including nearly 200 foreign decision-makers, journalists and influencers, generated enormous interest: even closer friendships were forged with our allies, and the left-liberal world erupted in hysteria.

With good reason. CPAC, pioneered by the American Conservative Union (ACU), the Centre's American partner, is a flagship project for conservatives building their international alliance, and last year’s CPAC Hungary concentrated on the liberals' nightmare: the international convergence of national forces. Hungary's Prime Minister outlined the 12 points of the conservative recipe for success in 2022, including his admonition to play by our own rules, make friends and build communities. The Hungarian Right can act as an intellectual and political driving force in this process. CPAC Hungary 2023 provided a unique platform for joining with our allies in North and South America, Europe, Japan, Israel and Australia in proclaiming "United We Stand!"
