"Current Politics and Economics in Poland," by Dr. Richard J. Hunter  

Polish Flag with Eagle Coat of Arms On Thursday, November 16th, 2017, at 6:30 p.m., in Fahy 236, the Slavic Club, will be sponsoring a lecture, "Current Politics and Economics in Poland," by Dr. Richard J. Hunter.

This lecture will consider current political and economic events in Poland as it appears that Poland is looking inwards for economic and political solutions to its problems. Dr. Hunter will draw a contrast to the early period in 1989-1990 when Poland boldly embarked on its policy of economic transformation. "The Legal, Economic and Political Context of Lustration (Vetting) on Poland: Is Lustration a Necessary or Inevitable Part of Political and Economic Transformation?"
