We launched Integrity Lab in order to analyze and formulate the social and political environment around us with our own approach. We believe we can achieve this with a strategy based on true information and with the right partners.
Information is now more accessible then ever but due to time pressure it is getting more complicated to focus on real explanations and new perspectives. Different social groups are more and more visible and their demands are more articulated in politics – their connection points and the success in self-representation are more in question though. Old and new actors are already sharing public and politcal spheres but they differ fundamentally in self definition and perception: that’s why the mutually accepted terms and the conditions of dialogue are missing – being one of the possible reasons of the growing polarization. Issues sooner percieved as private matters are becoming the topics and objects of politics, and our everyday life and choices are more affected by politics than ever.
Why with us?
Integrity Lab is working to implement projects promoting the rulee of law, active citizenship and participation and advance liberty and prosperity. We are cooperating with (and looking for) Hungarian and international allies sharing these ideas and aims in order to find new, innovative solutions to the problems we all have to face – let them be private, civil or political actors.
