The paper presents a chronological overview and assessment of futures studies in Hungary. Futures in Hungary can be divided into two well discernible phases: the first one from the inception to the political turn characterized by a vertical and horizontal construction of the discipline, the second one characterized by its theoretical and methodological renewal and practical implementation. As an interdisciplinary study, Hungarian futures had been integrated into international futures studies in both phases. The paper, besides the overview of the theoretical and methodological results, also presents the current state of the education of futures studies. It is shed a light on the complex future images and the efforts of Hungarian futures studies in the service of practice. Finally, it considers the tasks that lie ahead of the futures studies in the coming years.
