Summary/Abstract: In the midst of a whole series of accelerated changes in and to the EU, Poland’s role in the Union has undergone a spectacular evolution. For anyone who had not earlier noticed this process, last year’s crisis-dominated European debates certainly made it clear. As only a narrow circle of Member States seem to be setting the pattern and rhythm for shaping the future track of the EU, Poland has so far been able to keep up with them. Yet with the change of both the domestic and European setups, Poland needs to rethink its strategy to maintain its European profile. For this, a number of questions need to be clarified: what are the roots of Poland’s recent advancements? What is the Polish vision of the future Europe and where does it see itself in it? What are the potential obstacles standing in Poland’s way of reaching its objectives? What are the stances of other Member States towards the Polish project?
