Poland’s foreign-policy turn

Poland’s foreign-policy turn
Poland’s foreign-policy turn
Following its 2015 parliamentary and presidential elections, Poland has reversed its consistently pro-European foreign policy, marking a radical departure from its post-1989 course. Whether this turn is the result of some well-developed strategy, or merely a natural extension of illiberal domestic reforms introduced by the new government, is irrelevant.1 What matters is the outcome. Poland is no longer an engine of European integration, nor does it seem to value its relationships with Germany and France. Instead, the new government has pledged to revive an interwar alliance of central and eastern European (CEE) states, which Poland, as the largest country of that region, would naturally lead.

Abstract

Following its 2015 parliamentary and presidential elections, Poland has reversed its consistently pro-European foreign policy, marking a radical departure from its post-1989 course. Whether this turn is the result of some well-developed strategy, or merely a natural extension of illiberal domestic reforms introduced by the new government, is irrelevant.1 What matters is the outcome. Poland is no longer an engine of European integration, nor does it seem to value its relationships with Germany and France. Instead, the new government has pledged to revive an interwar alliance of central and eastern European (CEE) states, which Poland, as the largest country of that region, would naturally lead.
