PPSY Seminars in 2017
The Polish Political Science Yearbook invites all scholars to participate in international seminars coorganised by the PPSY. In 2017 we asked researchers to consider and discuss challenges of security in Central Europe (February 21), transformations of international trade and investments (May 16), dealing with the legacy of totalitarian regimes (September 5), as well as the future of electoral systems (December 5). We also co-hosted, with the University of Łódź, the Seminar on the transitional justice (June 6, 2017) in Łódź, which objective was to discuss legal and political aspects of this process in a comparative context.
