ER Editor: We remind readers of the arms-length Rothschild funding that Eric Zemmour, one of the Demographic Summit’s French participants, is receiving. See Funding Both Sides: France’s New ‘Right’ Candidate Backed by Rothschilds’ Connections
Viktor Orban is holding the 4th Demographic Summit in Budapest yesterday and today. Here is an English language account of this summit from Hungary Today:
The summit was organized by Hungarian pro-family NGOs around the connections between demographics and sustainability. “The world is sustainable if there are children born and we pass the world on to them in a better state than in which we received it,” she said.
Like all developed countries, Hungary is facing a demographic crisis, Novák said. However, its government sees the solution in supporting families rather than in mass immigration, she said. Results of this approach include the largest growth in the number of marriages, and growing readiness to raise children.

Viktor Orban will receive successively Marion Maréchal (Thursday 23 September) and Eric Zemmour (Friday 24 September)
Viktor Orban is very interested in the future of the French right. He will first receive Marion Maréchal, Thursday, September 23, then Eric Zemmour, Friday 24.
ER: This is a tweet of Marion Marechal’s speech from yesterday in front of Orban (in French).
The occasion was created by a symposium dedicated to the demographic future of the European continent. Journalists in France and elsewhere are wondering whether the director of ISSEP (ER: Marechal) and the former C-News columnist (ER: Zemmour), not yet a declared presidential candidate, will meet at the symposium. Perhaps more interesting is that Budapest is becoming one of the capitals of political conservatism in the West. Former Vice President Mike Pence will also participate in the event, as well as the prime ministers of Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Marion Maréchal has become one of the leaders of the Conservative International
According to information from the Courrier des Stratèges, Marion Maréchal will be received by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Thursday, September 23, 2021. The former deputy of Vaucluse, now director of the ISSEP, a school of political science and management located in Lyon, will speak at the fourth Demographic Summit in Budapest. Marion Maréchal’s trip is part of her school’s international relations. Since the creation of ISSEP, it has forged academic ties in Lebanon (with USEK), Russia (with the University of Saint Petersburg), and Hungary (with Mathias Corvin College). And a campus of the school has been opened in Madrid in 2020.
Naturally, Marion Maréchal’s academic trips always have a political dimension, as she is considered, internationally, as a personality who will count in French politics in the coming years. Marion Maréchal has made two noteworthy trips in recent years: to the annual conference of American conservatives, CPAC, in 2018; and to the National Conservatism Conference in Rome, in 2020, where she spoke in both cases to outline the contours of an intellectual and programmatic renewal of the right in Europe and North America.
The Budapest trip is also situated in this context of the emergence of a sort of Conservative International.
Eric Zemmour exports the French presidential campaign 24 hours
Eric Zemmour did not want to be outdone. The one who is no longer a columnist on CNews and is not yet an official candidate for the presidential election felt that he could not stay away from the meeting in Budapest. Invited to the demographic summit in Budapest, he has, according to our information, maintained the suspense on his answer for a while. Then he made it known that he would go to Hungary, for what can be seen as a kind of endorsement by the leader of the European conservatives: Viktor Orban. Indeed, the Hungarian Prime Minister will receive Eric Zemmour the day after the audience granted to Marion Maréchal.
The Parisian gossip columns are buzzing about a possible meeting between the director of the ISSEP and the not-yet-candidate. It is true that all right-wing candidates will seek, in the coming weeks, at one time or another, to extract some form of encouragement from Marion Maréchal, who is not a candidate in the presidential election but who is endowed, according to an IFOP poll, with a potential of 28% in the first round if she were to run – that is, as much as Marine Le Pen and Eric Zemmour combined.
Budapest, capital of political conservatism
In fact, it is unlikely that participants in the Budapest summit will dwell on the details of the French presidential campaign. Eric Zemmour is of interest to the participants because he is, for the moment, little known outside the borders of France. The Budapest meeting is an event of great international significance because, in addition to Prime Minister Viktor Orban, it will be attended by the heads of government of the rest of the Visegrad Group (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia), as well as former U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.
The question to be answered by the participants is whether it is possible to envisage sustainable development without demographic dynamics. This is an economic approach little represented in France, except in the work of Jean-Didier Lecaillon. The family is not only made up of consumers; it is also the primary place for the formation of human capital without which there can be no economic growth. As Lecaillon shows, economic theory can be developed to measure the family’s contribution to prosperity.
It is clear that the approach of the Orban government, which relies on a very offensive policy of support for families – and which has already produced a rise in the fertility rate – is the opposite of the dominant policy in Brussels, which relies on immigration to compensate for the demographic decline of the old continent.
Budapest is becoming more and more clearly the capital of political conservatism in Europe – and probably in the West, since Donald Trump was not re-elected and Boris Johnson refuses to display a conservatism too … conservative.
