CIM Advanced Studies

cim-AS

CIM Advanced Studies (CIM AS) is a new project of the Centre for International Initiatives. Its main goal is to bring closer to our readers the most recent scientific papers published abroad.

Texts published under CIM AS in the form of short “critical reviews” are to introduce the Polish reader with the newest scientific papers and various reports published abroad. Project participants wish to, at least partially, fill the existing gap in the field of in-depth cogitation about the most recent trends, ideas and research results conducted outside Poland.

The new initiative is not only about simple reviewing of ideas or data comprised in selected texts, but mainly to make their critical assessment in the context of previously gathered knowledge in a given field.

What makes CIM AS so different from other reviews which can be found on the Internet?

Above all, it is the orientation on the newest research in the field of widely understood international relations, in-depth theoretical cogitation, as well as interesting style of our experts, who will subject to critical assessment, in exquisite manner, everything what is worth-noting in contemporary world.

Through the realization of this task, the team of CIM Advanced Studies carries out the mission of the Association, which is to popularize in Poland issues connected to international relations.

The project is coordinated by Kamil Mazurek (editor-in-chief of CII Analyses).
