International conference on 24-25th March 2020




The conference will take place after the anniversary of Poland’s accession to NATO and the European Union at the time of growing socio-political divisions in Europe resulting from the inflow of migration, increasing separatist movements, global deterioration of trade conditions, a new arms race, and uncertainty related to Brexit. On a global scale, we face prognosis of another global economic crisis, further fluctuations of oil prices, climate change, and possible terrorist attacks.

Just as it was difficult to predict the events taking place in the 1990s (the collapse of the USSR, changes in the political and economic system of Poland and other countries of the Eastern bloc), it is also difficult to predict what may happen in the short- or long-term future.

The world is changing dynamically – but is it at a crossroads? The answer is affirmative based on the observation of current events: emerging new economic and technological powers and the growing climate crisis. Can a precise diagnosis of the contemporary events be made? Can an accurate prognosis be made, especially in the field of state and international security in the areas significant from the point of view of the state power, state sovereignty and raison d’Etat. These problems delineate the thematic scope of the international conference that will take place on 24-25th March 2020 at the War Studies University.
