“Polish Eastern Policy” is an annual conference that gathers experts, journalists, activists, local government officials and decision-makers. It has been organised since 2005 and covers the main issues of Poland’s policy towards East European countries.
We aim to analyse the current international situation and propose solutions for the future. In 2020, we discussed issues such as Polish policy towards Belarus, elections in the USA and Eastern Europe, economic and historical issues in Polish-Ukrainian relations, and the Eastern policy of the local governments. An important part of the last edition was the debate on perceptions about the East in Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus.
Traditionally, the conference is held in Wrocław and Wojnowice, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020 it was organised online. The broadcast was carried out from the Ossoliński National Institute. Recordings from the conference are available here.
Our partners: International Cultural Centre, Centre for Eastern Studies, Amnesty International, Center for Polish-Russian Dialogue and Understanding and Institute of Central Europe.
The person responsible for the conference is Laurynas Vaičiūnas
