In 2019, Wojciech Sadurski published Poland's Constitutional Breakdown, in which he described the legal and political events that led to the country's recent turn towards illiberalism and democratic backsliding. Join us as he gives an update on the developments in Poland since: what has changed? What has remained the same? And what does Poland's constitutional future hold?
