On April 15-16, 2019 the 11th International Scientific Conference “Protection of Human Rights during the Crisis of Liberal Democracy” was taking place in Warsaw. The conference has been organized annually, starting from 2009, by the Jan Kochanowski University with the support of the Association of Polish Parliamentarians. Prominent Polish scientists studying different areas of law and their influence on the system of international relations and development of political processes on national, regional and international levels attended the event.

Research Advisor of the Conference Professor Jerzy Jaskiernia shared results of the previous conference, dedicated to the 70th anniversary of adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and presented a published collection of reports made by participants at the conference.

Representatives of educational institutions from Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Lithuanian, Spain, Serbia, Kazakhstan, Slovakia and Sweden took part in the conference in 2019, which was dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the Lisbon Treaty and the 15th anniversary of the Poland’s membership in the European Union. Presentations of the participants focused on problems faced by the modern society in protection of human rights under the influence of democracy transformation processes and problems in interactions between the state and the society. During the discussion, causes of development of crisis phenomena in a liberal-democratic society and their influence on development of integration processes in Europe, including in providing protection of human rights on the national level under conditions of the changing social structure of the society, were analyzed. The discussion of those problems will continue next year at the conference dedicated to “Challenges of Human Rights on the Verge of the Third Decade of the 21st Century”.

President of the Federation of Peace and Accord Dr. Victor Kamyshanov took part in the conference and presented report “Crisis of Liberal Democracy as a Challenge to Peace and International Security” at the plenary session of the conference.
