The focus of this study is the application of the international law by Hungarian Constitutional Court and ordinary courts. The purpose of the paper is to reveal whether there is any judicial dialogue or just a national monologue in this field. To achieve this aim, after an overview of the constitutional and legal framework, the application of the international treaties, international customary law and other sources of international law is analysed, as well as the interpretation of the domestic law in the light of international obligations will be investigated with special regard to the ‘judicial dialogue’.
