We invite you to listen to a conversation with Dr. Justyna Kajta, a sociologist from the SWPS University in Warsaw, about national movements and the reasons why they attract new people.

The conversation, prepared in the form of a podcast, is part of a project "Laboratory of Dialogue" carried out by the Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe together with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Poland.

What is school (as an institution and as a place)? How should we, as a society, treat it? Is there room for dialogue and concern for the welfare of students and teachers? What needs of the school and people who make it up have been reminded to us by the pandemic?

On 28 June, a meeting with Prof. Jacek Pyżalski was held under the title: "Between the institution and the space of relations. What have we learnt about school in the era of the pandemic".

It was the second meeting in a series of meetings organised as part of the 'Laboratory of Dialogue' project carried out by the Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe together with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Poland.

We recommend the article "1990: The year when Europe as we know it today was born" by Dr Łukasz Kamiński, which appeared on The text was written as part of the project "1990 / Year One. The democratic transformation in former Eastern Bloc countries" carried out by "Krzyżowa" Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe as a part of program "Europe for Citizens - Memory of European Past" and is co-financed by European Commission.

(…) Our memory of the fall of communism is dominated by the events of 1989. We remember the round table in Poland, the 'Baltic chain', the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia. Meanwhile, many key events took place in the following year.

We are pleased to announce that "Krzyżowa" Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe, in cooperation with Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Poland has started a second edition of a project "Laboratory of dialogue and reconciliation".

It is an international project which aims to create a space for presentation and exchange of experience and ideas among people actively working to support constructive dialogue based on mutual respect.

We will inform you more about the upcoming activities of the project soon.
