The Warsaw Institute Review

The Warsaw Institute Review is a free Polish magazine of the Warsaw Institute Foundation. We would like to present a broad spectrum of topics concerning Poland, a leader among East-Central European countries, in the form of analytical articles on political, legal, economic, social, historical and institutional issues. The authors of the articles in The Warsaw Institute Review are, on the one hand, analysts and experts, and on the other hand, people who have an active and practical influence on Poland’s political, economic and cultural life.

Despite this, the V4 states are not immune to the threat of extremism and terrorism and must possess well-developed counter-measures.
