CIR Comment: “Polexit? Two ways of Polish conservatism”

11 January 2021

“Exit” does not mean leaving the European Union, but a complex process that may take many years. In this sense, polexit is already a reality. Walls instead of bridges are being built between Warsaw and Brussels. At the same time, Poles remain the most pro-European nation in the community (88% of support for membership), beating not only other Central and Eastern European countries, but even the French and Germans. The key to Poland’s staying in the EU will not be the actions of the opposition, but the approach of Polish conservatives – writes Piotr Maciej Kaczyński, CIR expert, in the commentary Polexit? Two paths of Polish conservatism.
