Some Question Marks Of Private Law On The State-Owned Companies In Hungary


  • Tekla PAPP

    (Professor, Head of the Institute of Civilistics,Faculty of Science of Public Governance and Administration, National University of Public Service, Budapest, HUNGARY.)


The state can be an actor in Hungarian private law in several ways: on the one hand, by its organs (e.g. the Office of the National Assembly, ministries), on the other hand, by the organs of public law the state creates (e.g. budgetary organs), thirdly, through business associations operating with the participation of the state, fourthly, exceptionally, the state itself can also act as a subject of private law (AUER, 2017).In this study we call the attention to that the terminology used in case of business associations operating with state/local government participation is not sustainable and we focus on some issues where the private and public law discrepancy can be found in Hungary.
