“When writing about Poland, commentators abroad usually focus on what divides the country politically. Liberal democrats fight populists, pro-Europeans fight nationalists and so on. But while such a focus aptly captures the current political scene in Poland, this approach is not fully comprehensive…. the threat to the state from Russia’s invasion invariably remains “in the back of their minds.” The issue of sovereignty therefore is crucial to the political agenda and looms ever larger in the election campaign,” writes Jaroslaw Kuisz editor–in–chief of Kultura Liberalna.
European Contexts panel focuses on understanding the elections’ context, focusing on three topics: Internal electoral issues; international priorities based on internal political needs, and gender politics as electoral issues.
