As part of the dissemination of research results, scientists involved in the work of the CoE took part in the 26th international conference of the Central European Political Science Association – the largest scientific organisation dealing with political issues in the Central and Eastern Europe. This year several hundred scholars from Europe and North America debated the topic “Democracy After Coronavirus: Facing New Political Reality”. During the deliberations organised by the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia on 2 and 3 June, the UAM team prepared a panel entitled ‘EU External Actions in the Contested Global Order – (In)Coherence, (Dis)Continuity, Resilience’, which was attended by several dozen scholars. Prof. Łukasz Donaj discussed ‘EU-post Soviet space relations after February 24, 2022. Challenges and Perspectives’, Prof. Tomasz Brańka investigated ‘Seeking a greater role in the Arctic – a new(?) EU policy’ and Prof. Jarosław Jańczak looked at ‘The European Union – Japan Strategic Partnership in the Contested Global Order. External Relations of the EU before and during the time of conflict”.
