ACADEMIC RELATIONS BETWEEN FRANCE AND POLAND AT THE END OF THE COMMUNIST PERIOD
Languages of publication
This article attempts to show how academic relations between France and Poland were shaping up at the time of the dawn of the communist regime. Focusing on the example of the Scientific Center of the Polish Academy of Science in Paris, the article shows that political events did not had an immediate influence on the character of scientific cooperation. Weakening of scientific relations occurred before 1981, but the martial law did not lead to their demise. On the other hand the fall of communism did not lead to further deepening of mutual relations. Without regards to current political events both countries did not change their main policies as regards to the scientific exchange, seeing a priority in the disciplines of maths, physics and chemistry. These plans weren't accomplished and the fall of communism did not bring any major change here. On a larger picture, the article attempts to see what was the role of the Paris Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences in that process.
