Foreign Policy Magazine has rated Hungary the least stable Visegrád Four country in its latest annual Failed States Index, which ranks the world's most vulnerable nations.
The index, compiled jointly with the Fund for Peace, rated 177 countries based on 12 metrics of state decay, from refugee flows to economic implosion, human rights violations to security threats.
Out of the four “Visegrád states”, the Czech Republic was ranked most stable, followed by Slovakia and Poland, with Hungary lagging as fourth.
In EU terms, Ireland was rated most stable, while other non-EU member states, such as Switzerland and some Scandinavian countries also placed high on the rankings. (privatbankar.hu)
