Dialogue for Hungary (Hungarian: Párbeszéd Magyarországért, Párbeszéd), also known its shortened form Dialogue since September 2016, is a Hungarian green liberal political party, formed in February 2013, after having the Dialogue for Hungary Platform of the Politics Can Be Different (LMP) and eight MPs left the LMP party and established their new organization.

The party had formed a coalition with the "Together 2014" and they won together four seats in the national assembly and one seat in the European Parliament. The "Dialogue for Hungary" has taken one seat from the four in the Hungarian parliament and has one representative in Brussels.

On 24 August 2016, spokesperson Bence Tordai announced that the shortened form of the party's name will change to "Dialogue", and the Hungary word is removed.[1] In September 2016, the party's logo is changed to Párbeszéd (Dialogue), and the "Hungary" name is removed.
