Book launch: "Civil Society Revisited: Lessons from Poland"
Mon 22 May 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
In much social scientific literature, Polish civil society has been portrayed as weak and passive. However, recent developments, including ‘black protests’ against the proposed abortion ban and demonstrations against Peace and Justice party politics, suggest otherwise. The book Civil Society Revisited offers some insights which may help to understand current events as it challenges the characterization of Polish civil society as underdeveloped on both theoretical and empirical grounds.
This book launch event will feature a discussion between editors Professor Kerstin Jacobsson and Dr Elżbieta Korolczuk and two of the contributing authors: Dr Gabriella Elgenius and SEES Director Professor Jan Kubik.
