The Centre for Strategic Analysis of the Institute of Justice supports the activities of the Institute of Justice in the field of close cooperation with Hungarian Ferenc Mádl Institute of Comparative Law in the field of legal research. The aim of the planned research work is primarily to strengthen the position of the Central European region in expert debates in the field of legal sciences and to develop solutions in the field of matters related to the transparency of the work of international courts, protection of the family in international law and freedom of conscience and religion in Europe. Scientific cooperation with the Ferenc Mádla Institute of Comparative Law will be an opportunity to exchange research experiences and develop new, universal and comprehensive answers to legal issues.
International cooperation allows for a comparative approach and analysis of legal regulations existing under international law and the normative orders of other countries, as well as an examination of the social context of their functioning, which may contribute to the improvement of Polish legal regulations by adjusting foreign patterns to the standards resulting from the Polish legal order taking into account the native social context. A comparative approach and the involvement of foreign research centres in cooperation gives the opportunity to exchange experiences between experts from different parts of the world, which undoubtedly allows for broadening the perspective and gives the opportunity to work out the best solutions. As part of international cooperation, scientific and research teams are being formed gathering experts from Poland and foreign scientific and research units, including researchers specializing in legal sciences, but also from other than legal sciences fields of science, which gives the opportunity for an interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach to the explored issues. The interdisciplinary approach going beyond the field of law gives the opportunity to acquire knowledge crucial for the functioning of law also in other scientific fields related to a given issue, thanks to which given legal issues are consulted with representatives of sciences other than only legal one.
