Debate: “Sovereignty of Poland and its borders” with the participation of the CIR

Economic sovereignty doesn’t exist and this is not a result of globalization. The extent of connections between the states is so deep, that sovereign decision is so expensive even for major powers – said Eugeniusz Smolar, expert and member of the Council of the CIR foundation, in the introduction to the debate: “The sovereignty of Poland and its borders” organized by The Batory Foundation. Other panelists at the meeting were: Katarzyna Pełczyńska-Nałęcz (The Batory Foundation), Lidia Raś ( and Piotr Trudnowski (Jagiellonian Club). They discussed during debate on what means sovereignty today and how accession to the European Union changed the character of Polish sovereignty.
