The Warsaw Institute Review
The Warsaw Institute Review (WIR) is an English-language quarterly magazine published by The Warsaw Institute Review editorial board. It presents a wide spectrum of topics related to international affairs from the perspective of Poland – the leader of Central and Eastern Europe. The content is presented in the form of analytical articles on political, legal, economic, social, historical, cultural and institutional issues. The authors of the articles published in the quarterly are professors, analysts, experts and people who have an active and practical impact on political, economic and cultural life in Poland and in the world.
The editors of the The Warsaw Institute Review quarterly run a separate website, on which articles and other activities are presented. The Warsaw Institute is the publisher and organizer of weekly online expert debates, podcasts, interviews, and actively participates in promoting Poland abroad, e.g. through weekly appearances in the Polish community media in Chicago.
PGNiG, a gas champion overseen by the Polish Government, has won USD 1.5 billion in the arbitration in Stockholm. This is arguably one of the most remarkable victories in an international dispute for liberated Poland in over 30 years.
Over the last decades, Moscow and Beijing have strengthened their military relationship. This partnership, however, should not be described as a traditional alliance. China particularly avoids this kind of wording.
History is one of the areas in which Moscow is applying its ‘active measures’ to undermine the unity of NATO and the EU, as well as to weaken the countries which are clearly opposing Russia’s aggressive policy in Central and Eastern Europe.
Iran is accused of conducting an aggressive foreign policy and being the biggest, and sometimes even the only, force destabilizing the Middle East. Iranian diplomacy, however, is trying to shape a completely different image of their country.
A conscious choice of domestic products and services by consumers can be a driving force for the rapid development of the economy, building synergies between local companies, and the expansion of these companies onto global markets.
The UK’s exit from the EU has become a strategic opportunity for the French elite to push their own vision of European integration. Another call for the political offensive is the weakness of Germany, which is currently facing problems in its own backyard.
The Indo-Pacific, already a concept that attracted interest in foreign policy circles, increased significantly in importance after it was included in the 2017 US National Security Strategy and the 2018 Defence Strategy.
Emmanuel Macron has never really taken an anti-Russian stance, even though this is the image of the French president that the Russian media have repeatedly presented. When he was Minister of the Economy and Industry, he advocated that the sanctions against Russia should be lifted, and two weeks after he became President, he invited Vladimir Putin to Versailles.
