Arkadiusz Lewandowski, Solidarity Electoral Action: The Centre-Right in Search for a Cooperation Model
Languages of publication
The monograph is the fi rst attempt to comprehensively show the activity of the Solidarity Electoral Action (AWS) — one of the most enduring and also the longest present on the Polish political scene (in the Third Republic) — center-right coalition. Although — ideologically — AWS was an eclectic group, it ruled for four years (initially in a coalition), constituting a political base for the Cabinet of Jerzy Buzek. By specifying the limits of the research fi eld, the author takes into account the whole range of political activities of political groups that created AWS, its program, strategy and political thought, and placed the analysis in the wider context of political reality, as well as party and political system. The author runs his deliberations from the beginning of the systemic transformation, sensibly and objectively examining the origins of AWS, until 2002, when the group actually ceased to exist. AWS created foundations for new political structures, including two leading parties: Civic Platform of the Republic of Poland and the Law and Justice.
