Do the local nationalist, traditionalist politician, activist and voters not care about international or EU-related issues? Make it interesting for them. Training in Budapest.
How to defeat disinterest?
The traditionalist, nationalist and EU-critical political parties, their supporters and voters are less ready to address international and EU-related issues in local, national political activities. Same time, their level of knowledge and their source of information about these issues are frequently inadequate as well.
