GMF’s Warsaw office, established in May 2011, serves as a forum and source of ideas for strengthening transatlantic cooperation, with particular focus on issues critical to Poland, Baltic States, and Central and Eastern Europe more broadly.
The work of the office, led by Michał Baranowski, focuses on three main policy areas:
- Transatlantic security and defense policy
- Energy security policy
- Democracy in EU’s Eastern Partnership countries
GMF has a long history of engagement with Poland, including grants to Polish organizations since 1990 and the participation of many distinguished Poles in GMF’s Marshall Memorial Fellowship Program and other programming such as Brussels Forum.
