Przemysław Tacik: "Poland’s Lingering Recovery from Populism"

15.05.2024
When Poland descended into far-right populism in 2015, the initial question - when will it recover?- quickly gave way to another: How could it recover? Now that the Law and Justice Party is no longer in power, the process of repairing the legal system is much too complex and slow to be palatable to the supporters of the liberal-leftist coalition.

14.02.2024
In the dynamic landscape of global security, conscription stands as a cornerstone of Europe's strategy, essential for addressing evolving threats and safeguarding transatlantic security interests.

Natasza Styczyńska: "Identity Politics, Kosovo and Energy: Serbia’s Exceptional Stance on Russia’s War in Ukraine"

05.07.2022
Serbia, contrary to other Western Balkan EU candidate states, is the only democratic European country that did not join any sanctions on Russia imposed after the Kremlin’s aggression against Ukraine on February 24th, 2022. But, surprisingly to some, it did back the United Nations’ resolution condemning the Russian attack. To understand Serbia’s posture we need to go beyond single casual explanations.
