This includes conveying Poland’s perspective to Western policymakers in the ongoing debate on Eastern policy, and collaborating with international analytical centers to develop concrete steps aimed at achieving the goals set within the Eastern policy framework. The forum will also promote a return to closer cooperation within the Weimar Triangle as one of the leading regional bodies capable of coordinating policy towards Russia.

The forum will communicate to audiences across the region Poland’s active role in shaping Eastern policy, including its support for Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations and the future democratization of Belarus.
