“Poland – Europe 2050: Social Fiction Exercises” Debates
The Center for International Relations is the architect of the initiative, in cooperation with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and the Yunus Social Business Chair at Korczak University in Warsaw. The debates “Poland – Europe: social fiction exercises” (“Poland – Europe – World” – June 9, 2015 and “Future of Europe” – June 12, 2015, CIR headquarters at 25 Mińska St. in Warsaw) were addressed to representatives of the young generation: experts, political and local government activists, representatives of public administration, non-governmental organizations and think tanks.
The seminar “Poland – Europe – World” was devoted to the future of the European Union and the position of Poland on the Old Continent, the Europe’s strategy and foreign policy towards new challenges (especially resulting from Russia’s expansive actions and the situation in Ukraine), the changing international order and the universality of the global governance concept. The discussion during the “Future of Europe” meeting focused on scenarios regarding the directions of development of the European Union – visions of the European economic model (including the role of the social market economy and the social business idea ), as well as political concepts shaping the European future.
