Abstract

The Hungarian National Roundtable discussions of June-September 1989 represented a historic opportunity for a negotiated seftlement of the people's demands for freedom, human rights, and civil society and the incumbent elites' asking price of guarantees for a sheltered exit from the political arena. With respect to the crucially important details of its political agenda, the NRT was the scene of negotiations between two teams of lawyers. The first was the Independent Lawyers' Forum, which contributed members and advisers to the eight-party Opposition Roundtable. The other consisted of legal experts from the Ministry of Justice who worked for the HSWP delegation, as well as of the politically less consequential „third side” of trade unions and other political interest groups. The critical difference between these and all previous negotiations over the country's political destiny was that, for the first time in Hungarian history, these took place solely among the native elites rather than between them and the representatives of a foreign power. The outcome was transformation of state, political system and ownership structurea by a peaceful transition and the affirmation of timetested national traditions of nonviolent conflict resolution between political adversaries.
