My outreach and engagement activities
The dissemination of academic knowledge and participation in public debates constitute an important part of my job and I enjoy it a lot. I was a speaker at several non-academic conferences and public events i.a. Foresight in the EU, College of Europe, Bruges 2023, European Economic Forum 2023, Vienna Peace and Security Talks 2020, Budapest European Agora, Globsec Forum, Belgrade Security Forum, Dahrendorf Forum. Academia Europea de Yuste. I was also invited by various public institutions i.a. Polish Foreign Ministry, US Department of State, G20 Insights Platform, The European Commission Representation Office in Poland, The European Parliament Representation Office in Wroclaw to share my expertise.
