About

I graduated from the Centre for Europe at the University of Warsaw (BA degree), and from the Institute of International Relations of the University of Warsaw (MA degree) and National Defence University in Warsaw (MA degree). In 2007, I defended my PhD thesis in Political Science at the Faculty of Journalism and Political Science of the University of Warsaw. Next, in 2014, I obtained the degree of Doctor habilitatus in Social Science in the Field of Political Science at the Faculty of Journalism and Political Science of the University of Warsaw.

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Warsaw, Faculty of Political Science and International Relations in the Institute of International Relations, where I have worked since 2015. Previously, I worked for the Department of Security Science in the Institute of Political Science, Faculty of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Warsaw. Besides my academic practice, I acted as Deputy Director at the Head’s Office within the National Security Bureau, Poland. I have been a visiting researcher at the European Centre for Higher Education of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO-CEPES) in Bucharest. In 2017, in order to increase my scholarly competences, I took part in an academic practice programme at the Institute of Political Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAS) in Warsaw.

Since 2017, I have been a co-editor of the Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft (Baden-Baden, Germany) book series entitled Poland’s Foreign Policy Library (together with Professor Dariusz Popławski) which focuses on Poland’s bilateral relations with other countries. Since 2017, I have been the managing editor of the academic journal Studia Politica Germanica, editing three volumes on: ‘Cooperation of German-speaking Countries in the Field of Security’ (Vol 5, No. 16, 2016), ‘Defence in German-speaking Countries’ (Vol 6, No. 1, 2017) and ‘Diplomacy of German-speaking Countries’ (Vol 7, No. 2, 2017). Further, I have published in professional academic hubs, both in Poland and abroad, such as the Polish Academy of Sciences, the Romanian Academy of Science ‘C.S. Nicolăescu-Plopşor’ Institute for Research in Social Studies and Humanities in Craiova (Romania), and the National Institute for the Study of Totalitarianism of the Romanian Academy. My editorial practice also includes participation on the International Advisory Board of the Yearbook published by the Romanian Academy of Science’s ‘C.S. Nicolăescu-Plopşor’ Institute for Research in Social Studies and Humanities, and an Honorary Membership in the National College for Home Affairs Scientific and Records Committee of the Romanian Journal of Home Affairs by the Romanian Police Academy.

I merge my research interests with attending and organising domestic and international conferences, and carry out research projects. In 2015–2016, I headed two international projects, both supported by the Foundation for Polish-German Cooperation and in cooperation with Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn.

The first project was entitled ‘Polish-German Cooperation in the Field of Security: Twenty-Five Years of Common Experiences’ whose outcome was an international conference I organised, namely the Jubilee Conference on the Occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Treaty between the Republic of Poland and the Federal Republic of Germany on Good Neighbourliness and Friendly Cooperation. The conference was held in Warsaw in 2016 (see more at: http://www.en.ism.uw.edu.pl/polish-german-cooperation-2016/).

The second project was entitled ‘25×25: Dimensions of Polish-German Cooperation in the Field of Security: Assessment of the Twenty-Five Years of Shared Experience’ and led to the publication of a book under my editorship (Reconciliation–Partnership–Security: Cooperation between Poland and Germany 1991–2016, Baden-Baden: Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft 2016, 266 p., see more at: https://www.nomos-elibrary.de/10.5771/9783845280363-1/titelei-inhaltsverzeichnis?page=1).

In 2017 and 2018, I headed a research project entitled ‘The Republic of Poland’s Treaties on Good Neighbourhood after 1990’ carried out at the Faculty of Political Science and International Studies of the University of Warsaw. Within that project, and in cooperation with the European Migration Network, I organised an international conference entitled ‘Good Neighbourhood Treaties of Poland after 1990: Good Neighbourhood and the Challenges of Migration’, Warsaw 2018 (see more at: http://www.en.ism.uw.edu.pl/international-conference-titled-good-neighbourhood-treaties-of-poland-after-1990-good-neighbourhood-and-the-challenges-of-migration-warsaw-february-22-2018/).

I am the author of a number of monographs, chapters, academic papers and reviews, and the editor of volumes, all of which have been published both in Poland and abroad. Among others works, I authored Bezpieczeństwo wewnętrzne państw członkowskich Unii Europejskiej: od bezpieczeństwa państwa do bezpieczeństwa ludzi [Internal security of the Member States of the European Union: from the security of the state to the safety of people] (Warsaw: Aspra-JR, 2012, 639 p.) and recently edited Reconciliation–Partnership–Security: Cooperation between Poland and Germany 1991–2016, published by Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft (Baden-Baden 2016, 266 p.).

Areas of Expertise and Research Interests

My research focuses on three main areas, the first of which is the theoretical and practical dimensions of internal (domestic) security. I am interested in the internal security of EU Member States (particularly those in the Mediterranean Basin and Northern Europe), and also in the issue of the resilience of some non-European states, such as Australia, to non-military threats. Secondly, I have explored the theoretical dimension of human security, and have examined case studies of the above countries, taking into account their human security practice. Thirdly, I am intrigued by public diplomacy and the interplay between it and the security of states.

Teaching

I conduct classes and seminars for MA students of International Relations as well as PhD students, both in Polish and in English. My MA classes cover a variety of topics related to both internal security and diplomacy, particularly public diplomacy. I teach such classes as: Methods and Techniques of Contemporary Diplomacy; Diplomacy in International Relations; the EU Area of Freedom, Security and Justice: External Aspects; Public Diplomacy; The Organisation and Functioning of the British Foreign Service; Human Security; and Australian Foreign Policy. As well, I give classes to MA students of the Institute of European Studies of the Faculty of Political Science and International Studies, University of Warsaw, namely, EU Diplomatic Institutions, and Promotion in Diplomacy.

Seminar Themes

I am interested in supervising PhD students in the broad areas of: the theoretical and practical dimensions of internal (domestic) security of EU Member States (mainly of the Mediterranean Basin region and the Northern European countries); Australian affairs; human security; contemporary diplomacy and public diplomacy.
