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 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.
