Polish Eastern Policy


The “Polish Eastern Policy” conference convenes annually, bringing together a diverse array of experts, journalists, activists, local government officials, and decision-makers. Since its commencement in 2005, the forum has served as a platform for deliberating contemporary political matters across the broader Eastern European region, with a focus on devising forward-looking solutions.

Over the course of three days, participants are offered the opportunity to partake in panels, discussions, and informal meetings. These sessions are thoughtfully curated to encourage the exchange of ideas and perspectives, facilitating dialogue not only among stakeholders in Polish politics but also with representatives from international think tanks and political decision-makers from other Eastern European countries.

The inaugural day of the conference takes place at the Wrocław Ossolineum and comprises a formal session, accessible to the public. Attendees have the opportunity to engage in discussions centered around pivotal geopolitical matters concerning the CEE region.
The events of the second and third days take place at the Castle on the Water in Wojnowice and constitute the closed part of the conference, accessible solely to the experts, journalists, politicians, and local government officials. Following the principles of the Chatham House Rule, the latter part of the conference aims to encourage all involved parties to engage in open exchanges of ideas, fostering collaborative efforts towards shaping a democratic and integrated Eastern Europe.
The conference receives support from the City of Wrocław, the City of Gdańsk, the Ossolineum National Institute, and the Marshal’s Office of the Lower Silesian Voivodeship.
