IES Director Jeroen Dewulf with Dariusz Adamski

by Davit Gasparyan

On March 7, the IES was honored to welcome Dariusz Adamski, professor of law at the University of Wrocław, Poland, for a presentation titled “European Economic Integration and Populism: Foes or Allies?” Centered on the current rise of populism and its relation to European economic integration, the lecture shed a unique light on the phenomenon of populism and how certain countries may be more prone to its rise than others.

In February 2019, IES Administrative Director Gia White was interviewed about the Black History Cemetery Tour. You can read more about it here.
