      Pages: 9 - 18
      Abstract: In the paper, the main approaches of British and American researchers to the analysis of German unification prospects in 1945–1949 are stated. The key arguments of supporters and opponents of the united Germany are determined, chronological periods of each approach’s prevalence on the pages of foreign publications established, and the key historical events that determined the final predominance of the supporters of the Germany’s partition identified. Finally, two main trends within the framework of this approach are stated, and the essential characteristics of them defined.

  • The Concept of Climate Justice in the Context of Political Discourse

    • Authors: Yevheniya Tykhomyrova
      Pages: 19 - 35
      Abstract: The article analyzes climate change as a recent threat of the early 21st century. It presents an understanding of the concept of climate justice in the context of political discourse. The purpose of the study is to analyze the nature of climate justice and the protest forms of its implementation. To ensure climate justice, climate policy must embrace human rights, gender equality, inter-generational justice and cultural integrity. In particular, climate justice is treated everywhere by the problems of environmental democracy, climate activism, climate apartheid, climate skepticism. The author believes that climate change should be addressed not only as an environmental issue, but also as a climate justice issue focused on how the most vulnerable people are affected.

  • Agamben’s Two Missing Factors: Understanding State of Emergency through
           Colonialism and Racial Doctrine

    • Authors: Punsara Amarasinghe, Sanjay Kumar Rajhans
      Pages: 37 - 59
      Abstract: : The ideas of state of exception and sovereignty presented by Italian political philosopher Giorgio Agamben in the aftermath of post September 11 context generated a new discourse in the realms of public law and political philosophy on how law and its protection becomes invalid under state of exception. Agamben showed how suspension of constitutional liberties within so called state of exception legally erases any status of an individual regardless of international legal or constitutional norms. However, this article seeks to examine how Agamben had excluded the nature of state of emergency doctrine in colonial societies under European colonialism, where emergency regulations were frequently adopted by colonial masters in subordinating the colonized; at the same time, this article will focus on the racial element appearing behind enacting state of emergency in both colonial era and modern states. The objective of this article lies in underpinning the much important, yet neglected two factors in the whole state of emergency scenario. The results emerging from this article will demonstrate how Eurocentric academic thinking has abandoned some real pertinent issues in constructing the notion on state of emergency.

  • Nigeria: A Few Words about Political Corruption, the Presence of Boko
           Haram, and the Growing Power of Fulani Extremists

    • Authors: Anna Kotasińska
      Pages: 61 - 73
      Abstract: Nigeria is a country associated with oil wealth, ubiquitous corruption and Boko Haram’s terrorist activities. All this means that despite having the necessary resources and the theoretical capacity for economic development, being one of the wealthiest countries in Africa does not lead to its flourishing. What is more, 2018 showed that another problem is gaining strength, namely the functioning of the Fulani extremists, through whom the number of deaths from attacks in Nigeria is steadily increasing. Will the corrupt Nigerian authorities be able to counter the new wave of terror in the country effectively'

  • Between Digital Elections and the Information War: Post-truth, New Media
           and Politics in the 21st Century

    • Authors: Przemysław Łukasik
      Pages: 75 - 92
      Abstract: While the search for the essence of truth has its ancient record, the concept of post-truth is the most modern one. The concept of post-truth means situations in which facts have less influence on shaping public opinion than emotions and personal beliefs. New media, in particular social media and digital society, are an important medium nolens volens shaping reality. The existence of the notion of post-truth in the discourse, above all politicians, political scientists and media people, is beyond doubt. However, the very nature of this phenomenon is seen differently. When I started writing the text, I asked myself the following research questions: What are the features that define post-policy' To what extent does the concept of truth refer to a new phenomenon, and to what extent is it a new term for the phenomenon that has always accompanied politics and elections' What is the specificity of new media and the digital generation' Do they play the role of determinants or are they just a medium for shaping the post-truth process' Are modern elections digital or more information warfare' Looking for answers to these research questions, I will examine two cases of campaigns: the British Brexit campaign and the American presidential campaign Clinton-Trump. The text also undertakes an analysis of the post-truth phenomenon in the information war that has been taking place in eastern Ukraine since 2014.

  • Problems of Enclaves from the Perspective of Interethnic and Interstate
           Relations in the Ferghana Valley

    • Authors: Zhandos Karinbayev
      Pages: 93 - 126
      Abstract: The Ferghana Valley is the most densely populated part of Central Asia. The borders of Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan intersect across the Valley. The state lines of these three post-Soviet states were determined during the national-territorial land division in the 1920s. Borders of these three post-Soviet states were drawn during the 1920s, which was a period of territorial land divisions in the early Soviet period. The boundaries drawn at that time have not been universally accepted by these modern post-Soviet states, and have thus become the subject of fierce debate since the time of their independence. This region has a high population density and a high growth rate. These facts, along with the water policies and the objectives of each state, has caused the Ferghana Valley to become a geographical focus of regional conflicts.Enclave problems appear as one of the factors leading to local conflicts at the interstate level. The purpose of this article is to classify Ferghana enclaves in accordance with international scientific definitions and to assess their impact in the context of relations between the kin- and surrounding states. This problem will be discussed from the perspective of interethnic and interstate relations in the Valley. The article shows the evolution of enclaves in Ferghana, their problems, the history of interstate relations in the post-Soviet period, the position and role of the Ferghana states in resolving disputes about the state borders.

  • Raped Life. Sexual Violence as a Forward-Looking War Practice: Case of
           Bosnia and Herzegovina

    • Authors: Katarzyna Wasiak
      Pages: 127 - 146
      Abstract: Gender equality is one of the categorical imperatives of universal human rights. However, today, in many national contexts, women’s rights and needs are not respected. The war in Bosnia and Herzegovina has shown the world how thin the line is between coexistence and hate, and what is more, it has shown how easy it is to use a woman’s body in political and war games and then forget about their sacrifice.The article is focused on the long-term effects of wartime sexual violence. Based on a quantitative and qualitative analysis of field research, the author wants to show how Bosniak women constantly suffer from sexual violence despite the end of the conflict.

  • Geostrategic Significance of Ukraine in the Region of Central and Eastern
           Europe in the Works of Dmytro Dontsov and Yurii Lypa

    • Authors: Taras Starodub
      Pages: 147 - 158
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to determine the geostrategic role of Ukraine in Central and Eastern Europe and the Baltic-Black Sea region, its geopolitical potential to become a major integration factor for this macro-region, and its ability to withstand the expansive challenges of Russia in extrapolating the views of Ukrainian thinkers D. Dontsov and Y. Lypa.After all, the region of Central and Eastern Europe became the base for a large-scale hybrid war. Undoubtedly, Ukraine remains the main target of Russian military and information aggression. However, in contrast with Russian aggression, countries in Central and Eastern Europe have to develop a common consolidated and coordinated position in order to maintain stability and security in this macro-region.A significant part in the works by Dmytro Dontsov and Yurii Lypa is given to the development of cooperation between the countries of Central-Eastern Europe and the Baltic-Black Sea region to restrain Russia’s aggression. At the same time, Ukrainian thinkers determine the place and the role of the Ukrainian state in the integration of this geopolitical space and its strategic importance in the development of Central and Eastern Europe.

  • Women in Fundamentalist Terrorist Organisations as a Threat to Security

    • Authors: Paweł Olbrycht, Kornelia Serwata
      Pages: 159 - 173
      Abstract: Today, terrorism is undoubtedly one of the major threats to international security. This is confirmed by the fact that the United States Department of State classifies more than 50 groups as terrorist organisations (The United States Department of State Website).In the context of the terrorist threat, we can witness an increasing number of women, especially in the organisations that radically interpret the Quran (Koran) on which Islam is based.The aim of the article was to explore the phenomenon of women’s participation in the activities of fundamentalist terrorist groups.The main research problem took the form of a question: To what extent do women in fundamentalist terrorist organisations influence the level of security' The main hypothesis, however, took the form of an assumption that the increase in the scale of women’s participation in terrorist organisations of a fundamentalist nature determines, in the context of the terrorist phenomenon, the growing threat to security on their part. The article presents the determinants of women’s terrorist activity and their main functions performed within the structures of terrorist organisations.As the main research method, the analysis of literature and Internet media with the use of content analysis techniques, as well as statistical data analysis (desk research) were applied.The research was carried out as part of the research project No. 146/WNB/65/DzS called: The Migration Policy of the Republic of Poland as an Indicator of Its Internal Security carried out at the Faculty of Security Studies at the General Tadeusz Kościuszko Military University of Land Forces (Wrocław, Poland).

  • Representations of the “Refugee Crisis” on Front Pages of Polish
           Weekly Magazines between 2015 and 2018

    • Authors: Aleksandra M. Różalska

      Abstract: Drawing from postcolonial studies and discourse analysis, in this article I will critically look at the dominant narratives and visual depictions of the so-called “refugee crisis” in contemporary Polish weekly magazines (2015–2018) with a special focus on their front pages. For comparative purposes, I will conduct qualitative analysis of the selected press titles representing different socio-political worldviews and aiming at various audiences, such as Tygodnik Powszechny, Wprost, Polityka, Do Rzeczy, W Sieci, Gazeta Polska, Niedziela. I will have a look at the images used to illustrate the humanitarian crisis in combination with the analysis of titles and texts placed on front pages. Importantly, as many European reports underline, the press in particular, and the media in general, participated in framing the arrival of migrants and refugees from North Africa in 2015 as crisis. The term “refugee crisis” was popularized by numerous headlines, press articles, and other media accounts.The analysis of weeklies’ front pages leads to the conclusion that the Polish society and mass media yield to the dominant discourse defining a refugee as “Other,” enemy, terrorist, or invader. As I have shown above, sympathetic coverage is rare. The press, instead of delivering reliable and balanced opinions, rather tends to fuel negative attitudes and prejudices by maintaining the perception of refugees from North African and Middle East as endangering the Polish society.

  • Institution of Non-Partisan Election Observers in the Polish Electoral Law

    • Authors: Magdalena Wrzalik
      Pages: 195 - 205
      Abstract: The paper discusses a new institution in the Polish electoral law – namely, non-partisan citizen election observers. This institution, next to scrutineers and international election observers known previously to the Polish electoral system, is intended as another instrument of social control of the electoral process, increasing reliability and fairness of elections. This new institution was introduced by the Act of 11 January 2018 on amendments to some acts in order to increase participation of citizens in the processes of election and functioning and controlling of certain public bodies.The analysis performed allows to conclude that final evaluation of the role played by non-partisan election observers will be heavily influenced by observation of how this institution is used in actual elections, at least over one full electoral cycle.
