Kasia is a 2nd year PhD researcher at the Department of Law. She engages in a comparative analysis of constitutional identity in Poland and Hungary as evolved since 1989 from the perspective of the domestic case law. She poses her research against the EU law background and the analysis of Article 4(2) TEU.
Kasia graduated from the University of Warsaw, where she obtained a Master’s degree in law (writing a thesis on constitutional populism), as well as a Master’s degree in sociology (with a thesis on identity of the Polish researchers at the EUI). Her research topics mainly focus on identity-building, Central and Eastern Europe after 1989, national identity in the EU and the challenges of constitutional pluralism.
Apart from engaging in a PhD, Kasia regularly publishes in diverse places. A shortened list of her non-academic publications can be found below bio. Furthermore, Kasia systematically writes about books – from classics to contemporary hits – on her Facebook blog, co-authored with another PhD researcher at the EUI. She is keen on writing on topical problems of our modernity, comprising identity, community and the EU.
