Event information
Venue:University of Miami


The Miami-Florida Jean Monnet Center of Excellence would like to share this upcoming in-person event organized by the American Institute of Polish Culture and The Center for the Humanities at the University of Miami College of Arts and Sciences.

From the very beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Poland has abruptly become a frontline state. Absorbing and accommodating endless waves of refugees, delivering humanitarian assistance to Ukraine, and propping up its military effort to fend off the Russian aggressor. Poland’s perception as an important geopolitical node has risen significantly, as has its overall standing on the international stage. Will recent developments lead to a long-term shift in European politics, with Poland as a new crucial player?
