Poland, a nation that successfully transitioned into a market-based democracy in the 1990s, is the eighth-largest economy in the EU. Although relatively strong economically, it is by no means immune to continent-wide challenges, such as the recent financial crisis, the influx of refugees, persistently sluggish economic growth, democratic backsliding, and Moscow’s encouragement of a swelling populist revolt. How will Poland’s leading Law and Justice Party help the country deal with these realities? For today’s leaders in Poland, what potential role does the nation’s long-standing partnership with the United States play in that process?
Please join AEI for a conversation with Polish Deputy Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki about how Warsaw and Washington can work together to strengthen economic growth and liberal democratic values on both sides of the Atlantic.
