Following its highly successful transition from communism, Poland elected the populist Law and Justice Party to power in 2015. This government has put the country on a collision course with the European Union, especially over immigration and the judiciary, and it has thrown into question the country’s commitment to the rule of law and free markets.
Professor Leszek Balcerowicz, the renowned architect of Poland’s economic miracle, will offer reasons why Poland has come to its present political pass. He will also discuss the implications of recent Polish developments for the country’s economic and political outlook and for the future of the European Union in Central and Eastern Europe.
