Department of International Organizations and Global Security Studies

Research areas

The Department engages in scientific research on major global trends, challenges and policy-making, especially in the context of international organizations. Shifts in global economic connections and the crisis (decline) of liberal international order call for comparative research on transformation of multilateralism, global and regional international organizations and great power politics.  This should be complemented with in-depth scholarly reflection on the transformation of the state, which is increasingly confronted with internal and external challenges, notably related to security, climate change, including access to water, or migrations. Members of the Department conduct research on the European Union, NATO, UN, regional integration and cross-border cooperation in Southern Asia and Eastern Asia, as well as on internal politics and policies in China, France, India, Indonesia, Mongolia, Germany, Poland, the US and the UK.

Ongoing research projects conducted by members of the Department focus on diverse EU integration and disintegration, EU’s foreign and security policies, which includes institutional determinants and decisionmaking process, strategy of civil society organizations in times of authocratization on the example of a regional organisation ASEAN, strategy of resistance and nonviolent action in Eastern Europe, states’ resilience to hybryd warfare threats, but also sedentarization and urbanization in the postnomadic areas of China and Mongolia.

The Department organizes a research seminar dedicated to new theoretical and methodological approaches in international relations, and their empirical application. We are hosting outstanding scientists and prominent researchers from leading academic centers from Europe and beyond.

Members of the Department actively shape public debate in Poland on international affairs, notably by organizing expert debates in cooperation with Asia Research Centre, Centre for Security Studies, War Studies University.
