European Civilization Chair

Thanks to the support of the European Union, and in particular the European Parliament, the Natolin campus of the College of Europe in Warsaw created the European Civilization Chair in memory of Professor Bronisław Geremek †. The mission of the Chair is to teach and encourage reflection on recent European history within the wider context of European Civilization, in the conviction that understanding Europe's past helps us to imagine and shape Europe's future. In particular, there is a focus on twentieth-century Europe's division and reunification. This is in keeping both with Professor Geremek's achievements as a medieval historian and the role he played in Poland and in Europe both before and after the fall of Communism.  » more information
