The Hungarian law enforcement reform process started in the second half of the 19th century (after the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867) with the explicit goal to modernize civil jurisdiction. This aim is reflected in one of the most influential legislative acts on penal law in the country, that is the Code Csemegi that would fundamentally have reshaped the workings of the Hungarian prison system and correctional facilities. However, the available financial and HR-resources proved insufficient for the actual implementation of the reforms laid down by the legislation. This ambiguous reform process was interrupted for good as the Trianon Treaty brought about the dramatic loss of the country's territory and irreversible changes in public administration.
