Field of research
Navracsics’s field of research are comparative politics and internal politics in the European Union. Because he speaks both Serbian and Croatian, he wrote a number of analyses regarding the former Yugoslavia.
At the invitation of the presidency he wrote about the ground values of the party a manifesto, after he organized several public debates on the topics of living standards, competitiveness, public services and justice. The manifesto was accepted by the 2007 Congress of the Fidesz – Hungarian Civic Union.
He was elected „Teacher of the Year 2007” by the students of ELTE.
On 6 October 2014, the European Parliament proposed to reject him as EU commissioner-designate since he was found unsuitable for the post related to citizenship. Instead he was given the portfolio for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport.
