We invite you to participate in the scientific conference entitled "Divergence or the community of interests? Relations between Poland and Germany in the European Union." It will take place on June, 13th at 10:00-14:00 in the Faculty of Law and Administration of the Jagiellonian University (33 Krupnicza Street, Blue Hall). The aim of the conference is to present, analyze and discuss the results of the POLGER research project ("Divergence or community of interests? Polish-German relations in institutions and the legislative process of the European Union / Ziehen an einem Strang - gemeinsame oder jedes Land an einem Ende?" Deutsch-polnische Verhältnisse in den Institutionen und im Gesetzgebungsprozess der Europäischen Union "). The project is financed by the Polish-German Foundation for Science.

The conference will focus on three research questions. First of all, what is the state of Polish-German cooperation in the EU, in particular in the European Parliament and the Council? Secondly, is Polish-German cooperation, understood as agreeing positions and building coalition, profitable for both countries, i.e. does it bring more success in the EU legislative process? Thirdly, what actions should be taken to improve cooperation between Poland and Germany in the EU, in particular what are the barriers, how to overcome them and whether it is worth doing?

The POLGER project is implemented by a consortium of the Jagiellonian University (leader) and the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder). The project manager is Adam Kirpsza, Ph.D.
