The HHC aims to counter the apparently systematic deterioration and destruction of democratic values and structures in Hungary by helping to defend and reinforce these values and institutions, and make society understand why these values are important, how they are threatened, how they can be protected through different (legal and non-legal) means. The secondary goal is to enable the organization to perform the above outlined task through increasing its organizational capacity and creating synergies between HHC and other democracy-promoting NGOs.
