On June 8th and 9th 2018, the Casimir Pulaski Foundation will organize the Polish International Experts Congress. The Congress is to serve as a meeting place for the Poles working in international institutions, think tanks, analytical centers, Universities, and commercial entities, therefore fostering the discussion on a multidimensional approach to Poland’s security policy, economic cooperation, as well as promotion of human rights.

Among key questions posed during the Congress will be those related to promoting Polish experts and leaders working in international institutions, private sector, NGO’s, fostering communications and cooperation between Polish expats working in a professional environment, as well as defining and setting priorities for the development of Poland’s expertise. The primary goal set for the Congress is to establish a network of Polish experts and professionals  working in international security, academia, NGO’s, and commerce, in Poland and abroad.

Special emphasis will be placed on sharing experiences and establishing networks between the attendees coming from different professional backgrounds, and consequently promoting enhanced cooperation between Poles working in international institutions and building Poland’s position as an important player on the international arena, consequently developing awareness of the importance of strategic thinking in the context of Polish soft power.

A platform designed to bring together experts and leaders in Poland and worldwide will be unveiled during the Congress, alongside the “Global Experts Hub” – a presentation of firms and institutions. Among those in attendance will be the Deputy Director-General of the European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Department at the European Commission Maciej Popowski, Executive Director of the European Endowment for Democracy Jerzy Pomianowski and Bogusław Winid, an advisor to the President of the Republic of Poland, and a former Polish ambassador to the UN and NATO.
