Landecker Fellow Katarzyna Słubik appeared on two podcasts to discuss Polish borders with Belarus, Poles’ public opinions and fears, and more in two podcast episodes.
In the “Rzeczpospolita Rozmowy” podcast (in English “Rzeczpospolita Talks”), Katarzyna discussed the role politicians play in “sipping into the ear of Polish public opinion.” Katarzyna explained how the government should do more to explain certain situations rather than allowing its citizens to fear those who look different from us, have a different religion or come from a different culture. A similar story is that of those who do not want to vaccinate themselves: the government should explain and convince its citizens better. The podcast episode is available in Polish here.
In the “EKG – EKONOMIA, KAPITAŁ, GOSPODARKA” podcast, Katarzyna discussed the current situation on the border between Poland and Belarus, where a group of 30 migrants has been trapped for weeks between security forces of the two countries. Katarzyna explored this situation and added a law commentary to the subject. The podcast is available in Polish here.
Katarzyna is one of thirty Landecker Democracy Fellows. This fellowship, a collaboration between the Alfred Landecker Foundation and Humanity in Action, was created to strengthen a new generation of leaders whose approaches to political and social challenges can become catalysts for democratic placemaking and community building.
