Poland & Europe - A constitutional crisis?

Brännpunkt Europa invites you to an exciting seminar about the current political situation in Poland after the election in 2015 in connection with the criticism the country received from the EU.

Lecturer: 
Mr Włodzimierz Cimoszewicz, former prime minister in Poland.
Peter Johnsson, senior foreign correspondent in Poland.

Since the Polish political party Law and Order (Prawo i Sprawidliwość) formed a government after the parliamentary elections in 2015, the country has faced a political crisis. Regardless of demonstrations by citizen against the new government and their policies, the party still has support. The government has also received strong criticism from the European Commission for risking a constitutional crisis. 

Mr Cimoszewicz was the Polish Prime Minister from 1996-97, Foreign Minister 2001-2005 and in 2005 Speaker of the Sejm of Poland. 

Peter Johnsson is a foreign correspondent and lives in Warsaw. He has written several books on Poland and will issue another one next year.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get some insights into Polish politics. We hope to see you all there!
