Research Projects

Law on Higher Education 2.0
- Guidelines for Higher Education System in Poland

Learn more

Polish law on higher education requires a comprehensive reform. The current legislation is based on principles that would only perpetuate the status quo. The reform requires new guidelines, which would allow universities to introduce new solutions and to modernize the academia. The focus is on new quality of higher education, new requirements for academics, and on modern management and financing of universities and research. The team of lawyers from SWPS University, under the leadership of Professor Hubert Izdebski, will take an active role in preparing the guidelines for the new Law on Higher Education in Poland.

Plato’s Conception of Justice
from the Perspective of the Contemporary Foundation of Law in Human Dignity

Learn more

The project, though about Plato, relates to one of the fundamental problems of contemporary civilisation: are human rights, which are  based in human dignity, truly universal in space and time? If they are, then the greatest thinker of the ancient times, Plato, has something interesting to say about it.
