Hungarian youth call corruption a serious problem

August 12, 2016

A recent research by Transparency Internatiopnal Hungary, the Publicus Institute and Corvinus University reveals that eighty young people out of a hundred think that corruption is a serious problem in Hungary, and 77% of the surveyed consider the political life the most infected with corruption.

Transparency International Hungary (TI), the Publicus Institute and the Corvinus University jointly researched in July 2016 what the youths think of corruption and which media broadcasts they follow. Young people do not believe that endemic corruption should be tolerated, this is perhaps the most important lesson learnt from the representative survey of five hundred people between the ages of 18 and 29.

TI executive director József Péter Martin presented the study headlined “Perception of Corruption and Media Consumption of Young People in Hungary” at Budapest’s Sziget Festival this Friday. The research reveals that 80% of young people think that corruption is a serious problem in Hungary, and 77% believe that political life is the most infected with corruption.

According to the survey, more than half (54%) of young people have personally experienced corruption: 39% in healthcare and 29% during police procedures.
