Summary/Abstract: The complexity of issues and debates concerning the implementation of provisions of the Act on Hungarians Living in the Neighboring States (Status Law) can be approached in numerous ways. One of the possible lines of analysis would follow the potential legal development in diaspora law or in a wider circle of domestic law in Hungary due to the fact that about 150 various legal sources have regulated in recent decades, in a hidden or in an obvious way, the benefits and distribution of support for ethnic Hungarians across the borders. This new stratum of law, namely diaspora law aims to draw further consequences for state administration, public management and legislation in contemporary Hungary.
