Forrás. [Source., or Boiling point] is a blog series by the Blinken OSA staff at the Hungarian news website 444.hu.
In early 2021, a new collection was added to the Blinken OSA holdings, comprising a series of interviews with László Mester on his life and political career from the years at the youth association (Magyar Kommunista Ifjúsági Szövetség, KISZ) of the Hungarian Socialist Workers’ Party, through the regime change and several terms as a mayor, to the end of the last decade.

Today, twenty-five years have passed since the official signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement in Paris.
December 10 is Human Rights Day, celebrating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted by the UN General Assembly on this day, in 1948. On this occasion, we share another declaration: the 1988 Political Program Declaration of FIDESZ.
I have kept getting polite versions of the above question ever since I started talking to colleagues about the exciting prospects of expanding the Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives’ collection of survey data. Joe Biden’s unexpectedly bumpy ride to an Electoral College majority turned this nagging question into a burning issue that may undermine the credibility of much social science research worldwide.
