Haraszti studied philosophy and literature at Budapest University. In 1976 he co-founded the Hungarian Democratic Opposition Movement and in 1980 he became editor of the samizdat periodical Beszélő.
In 1989, Haraszti participated in the "roundtable" negotiations on transition to free elections. A member of the Hungarian Parliament from 1990–1994, he then moved on to lecture on democratization and media politics at numerous universities.
Haraszti's books include "A Worker in a Worker's State" and "The Velvet Prison", both of which have been translated into several languages.
In 2012, Haraszti was appointed UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Belarus.
