This blog provides analysis of the Polish political scene by Aleks Szczerbiak, Professor of Politics and Contemporary European Studies at the University of Sussex. Contemporary Polish politics is one of my main research interests and I am author of Poles Together? The Emergence and Development of Political Parties in Post-communist Poland (Central European University Press, 2001), Poland Within the European Union: New Awkward Partner or New Heart of Europe? (Routledge, 2012) and am currently working on a book on the politics of transitional justice in post-communist Poland.
