Visit by a delegation from the College of Europe in Natolin
On the 4th of May 2022, a delegation of the Natolin Campus of the College of
Europe staff and students visited the Baltic Defence College (BALTDEFCOL) as
part of their study trip to the Baltic Region. The delegation was headed by
Vice-Rector of the College of Europe in Natolin Dr Ewa Ośniecka-Tamecka,
joined by former BALTDEFCOL faculty member Dr Andriy Tyushka.
The guests were welcomed by the Director of the Department of Political and
Strategic Studies, Dr Asta Maskaliunaite. The programme of the visit
included a presentation on the College and discussions with BALTDEFCOL
Department of Political and Strategic Studies Faculty members.
The overarching theme of the study visit is “Back to the future: Russia's
war in Ukraine” and all the spectrum of security threats in Europe.
The College of Europe was the world’s first university institute of
postgraduate studies and training in European affairs. In 1949, the first
campus of the College of Europe was established in the city of Bruges,
Belgium. After the fall of communism, and in the wake of the changes in
Central and Eastern Europe, the College of Europe campus at Natolin
(Warsaw, Poland) was founded in 1992 with the support of the European
Commission and the Polish government. The College now operates as “One
College – Two Campuses”.
