In the first days of December a group of visitors form Ukraine met in the MFA with representatives of departments responsible for human rights, Eastern policy, development aid, public diplomacy and cultural cooperation. They came to Poland as part of the realisation of the Lech Wałęsa Solidarity Prize. The participants were recommended by Mustafa Dzhemilev leader of the Crimean Tatars and laureate of the Solidarity Award. The study tour was organised by the MFA, the Solidarity Fund, Polish Cultural Institute in Kiev and PAP.
During the tour, the participants will have an opportunity to visit public institutions, NGOs as well as higher education institutions in Warsaw and Gdansk. There are also meetings scheduled with the parliamentary committee on minorities and representatives from the Muslim and Tatar communities. Those interested in studying in Poland, will be able to learn about the offer of Polish universities.
As Poland is celebrating 25 years of freedom, our guests will be able to learn the history of democratic transformation in Poland. They will also visit a new Polin museum in Warsaw.
