In an unexpected move, Polish President Duda has said he will block two bills meant to reform Poland's judiciary by increasing the government's influence over the judiciary. Thousands of people across Poland have protested against the reform.
Poland's president has drawn comparisons between his country's EU membership and its 123 years of partitions. The government, under pressure from Brussels, rarely misses an opportunity to bare its patriotic teeth.
The University of Warsaw's most popular course is a new offering: its Institute of Sociology course analyzing the country's most powerful politician, Law and Justice (PiS) party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski.
Warsaw doesn't appear ready to back down as the EU targets its judicial reform. Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of the ruling Law and Justice party, has said that the program of "deep changes" in Poland "will not slow down."
In a surprise move, Polish President Andrzej Duda has vetoed a large part of the government's controversial justice reform. The decision will make a lasting change in the political climate in Poland, says Bartosz Dudek.
