THE POLISH INSTITUTE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES
SECOND BIENNIAL LECTURE 2011


POLAND, THE PRINCIPLES OF LIBERTY, AND THE DEFENSE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION

by

DR. JOHN LENCZOWSKI

President and Founder
of the Institute of World Politics
Washington, D.C., U.S.A.

This public lecture will take place on Thursday, February 17, 2011, 7:30 p.m. Auditorium 203, Saint Paul University, 223 Main Street, Ottawa. Free admission.  Refreshments after the lecture - courtesy of the Polish National Union of Canada.

Western Civilization owes its rise, its prosperity, and its freedom to a culture rooted in transcendent values and moral principles that have led to respect for the dignity of the human person and the maximization of human potential.  This civilization has been under attack by a culture of relativism for more than a century.  Whether  it can survive depends on the West’s understanding and adoption of those principles that made it great.  The history and political-cultural tradition of Poland offer great lessons for the rest of the West.  Will Poland set a good example as it has so often in the past, or fall victim to the maladies that are causing civilizational fatigue and decline?


Dr. John Lenczowski, is founder and president of The Institute of World Politics, an independent graduate school of national security and international affairs in Washington, D.C. IWP is dedicated to developing leaders with a sound understanding of international realities and the ethical conduct of statecraft, based on knowledge and appreciation of American founding principles and the Western moral tradition. Offering three Master's degree programs and eight certificate programs, IWP is the only academic institution dedicated to teaching all the arts of statecraft, including: military strategy, the art of diplomacy; public diplomacy, opinion formation, political warfare, intelligence, counterintelligence, economic strategy, and moral leadership. It also focuses on ways of integrating these arts into a national strategy. IWP is proud to be the home of the Kosciuszko Chair in Polish Studies, a professorship designed to sponsor teaching, scholarship, and associated programs on the history, culture, traditions, and international role of Poland and the lands of the ancient Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

From 1981 to 1983 Dr. Lenczowski served in the State Department’s Bureau of European Affairs and was Special Advisor to the Under Secretary for Political Affairs. From 1983 to 1987 he was Director of European and Soviet Affairs at the National Security Council. In that capacity, he served as principal Soviet affairs adviser to President Reagan.


He has been associated with several academic and research institutions in the Washington area, including Georgetown University, the University of Maryland, the American Enterprise Institute, the Ethics and Public Policy Center, the Council for Inter-American Security, and the International Freedom Foundation. He has also served on a Congressional staff.


Dr. Lenczowski attended the Thacher School, earned his B.A. at the University of California, Berkeley, and received his M.A. and Ph.D. from the Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies.
He is the author of Soviet Perceptions of U.S. Foreign Policy (1982); The Sources of Soviet Perestroika (1990), Cultural Diplomacy: A Multi-faceted Strategic Asset of Soviet Power (1991); Full-Spectrum Diplomacy and Grand Strategy (2010) and numerous other writings and addresses on U.S. foreign policy, public diplomacy, cultural diplomacy, counter-propaganda, political warfare, Soviet/Russian affairs, comparative ideologies, intelligence, strategic deception, counterintelligence, and integrated strategy.
