Nearly 30 years after its democratic breakthrough, Poland poses a puzzling and fascinating case for scholars, public intellectuals, and journalists. Has Warsaw since 2015 truly witnessed an „illiberal turn”, or rather a „democratic regeneration”? To what extent can we speak of a continuation of the transformation’s logic, and to what extent is this a construction of a new state model by the current Polish government? In this context, the country’s intellectual, social, economic and political ties to Britain, and other parts of Europe seem more important than ever. The project Knowledge Bridges Between Poland, Britain and Europe, generously supported by the Oxford Noble Foundation, aim to look more closely at these and other currents of change in a comparative and international context.
