The tradition of Congresses of the Jagiellonian Club is not only making diagnoses, but most of all suggesting solutions. To every panel, apart from the author of the presentation, there will be invited reviewers, who will evaluate suggested ideas of how to streamline our country.

10:15-11:30 am – 1st PANEL: What kinds of metropolises?
Soon, it will be 20 years since the administrative division of Poland. Although discussions on transferring competencies between boroughs, counties and voivodeships, which has lasted since 1999, are not over yet, currently the discussion of local governments is focused on questions concerning metropolitan policy. Wojciech Przybylski, a member of the Jagiellonian Club, will explain why and using what tools should we conduct it. Finally, he will answer the question, whether concentrating on metropolises will not increase development gaps between big and small Polish cities.
presentation: Wojciech Przybylski (The Centre of Analysis of the Jagiellonian Club, President of Kraków Technological Park)
11:45 am – 1:15 pm – 2nd PANEL: What kind of judiciary?
For many months, judiciary is the hottest political issue. Changes in the Constitutional Tribunal, and then suggestions to reform the National Council of the Judiciary, not only sparked a lot of controversy, but also resulted in two presidential vetoes. The Centre of Analysis of the Jagiellonian Club presents the authorial idea of how to reform judiciary by Jacek Sokołowski, PhD.

The question concerning why and how to reinforce the Sejm will be answered by the member of the Jagiellonian Club’s management board and editor-in-chief of jagiellonski24.pl – Piotr Trudnowski. He will justify the need to change the way presidents of constitutional institutions are chosen, as well as to empower deputies themselves, also the ones from opposition parties.
presentation: Piotr Trudnowski (Jagiellonian Club, editor-in-chief of jagielloński24.pl)
4:30 pm – 6:00 pm – 3rd PANEL: What kind of electoral law?
Many observers of political scene put forward a thesis that current electoral law needs to be changed. During the first presentation, Paweł Przewłocki, PhD, will present the assumptions of STV electoral law (Single Transferable Vote). He will try to encourage to introduce it in Poland as well. In discussion part, there will be for sure many questions concerning STV’s advantage over the system of single-mandate electors or mixed electoral law in the German style.
presentation: Paweł Przewłocki, PhD (stv.org.pl)
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm – 4th PANEL: Which values in the constitution?
Are we able to reach the compromise of values in the era of identity divisions? Can the Left come to an agreement with the Right when it comes to constitutional changes in this scope? Are such changes needed at all?
This time, politicians, not experts, will answer the above-mentioned questions. The representatives of different political environments: centre-right and not only, will be the guests of the “Round Table”.
conducted by: Krzysztof Mazur, PhD (President of the Jagiellonian Club)
