Introduction

This landlocked country in Central Europe became an independent State in 1993 after the peaceful dissolution of Czechoslovakia. Seen as a European success story following its transition to an independent democracy, it has seen rapid economic growth, driven by exports of various sectors, but has also been affected by the global economic downturn. Human rights violations include discrimination towards its ethnic Hungarian community, which constitutes about a tenth of the population, and the Roma minority, as well as domestic violence against children and a poor record on LGBT rights.
