This annual three day conference is packed with both plenary sessions and with workshops, which are organised around presentations of the ongoing and finalised research that is being conducted by 1000 participating scholars from across the country.

Dr Skrzypek also took part in the meeting of the Network of Critical Thought of the Progressive Academics, where ways for political sciences to remain independent and constructive in safeguarding democracy where the main topics.
