The 2nd Forum on European Policy entitled Poland and the EU -Cooperation, Challenges and Prospects will be held in Cracow Oct. 8-9. This conference is organized by the Institute for Strategic Studies in association with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Poland and NATO Headquarters.

The meeting will bring together about 200 invited guests from over 30 countries. Those who have confirmed their participation include Ursula Plassnik, former Austrian foreign minister, Bogdan Klich, Poland's minister of defense, and Radosław Sikorski, Poland's Minister of Foreign Affairs.

The organizers write in their conference letter of introduction that "2009 is a year full of important jubilees-50 years of the European Union, 20 years of democracy in Poland and other Central and Eastern European countries, 10 years of Poland's NATO membership, five years of EU membership. It's worth taking advantage of such dates to initiate a discussion on the future of our country and to sum up its achievements to date. Major anniversaries should be used as an opportunity to ask about the plans for the coming years and to try to solve the economic and social problems Europe, and thus also Poland, is struggling with today."

The Institute for Strategic Studies, previously called the International Center for Development of Democracy, was founded in 1993 by the Jagiellonian University and the Cracow University of Economics. The institute has now established itself as an expert institution that works with a number of centers involved in international affairs and security issues, at home and abroad. Since its inception, the institute has been conducting interdisciplinary programs to address key problems in Poland and the contemporary world. Its areas of activity include international relations with a special emphasis on Poland's integration into the European Union, Euro-Atlantic security issues, Poland's eastern policy and regional policy in Central Europe.
