About the department

The Department of Regional Strategic Studies gathers scholars specializing in political philosophy, geopolitics, security and regional studies, with a special focus on the Euro-Atlantic area and particularly East Central Europe defined as the civilizational legacy of the historical Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The faculty includes both researchers and active diplomats. The Department provides lectures and research work in a number of procedural languages. It contributes to the internationalization of its home Faculty of Law and Administration.
