Inauguration of the Polish-Hungarian Platform 2023


Scientists from Poland and Hungary will conduct research on more effective protection of farmers and children with disabilities, cybercrime and freedom of conscience. – We would like to develop universal models for legal solutions that would benefit our communities, not only in Poland and Hungary, but also throughout Central Europe,” stressed Prof. Marcin Wielec, the Head of the IWS.


The aim of the Polish-Hungarian project is to revitalize international cooperation among lawyers and develop new methods of drafting projects and legislative demands. The inauguration of the Polish-Hungarian Research Platform 2023 took place during an online video conference, with professors from Warsaw connecting with Budapest. – I am very proud and happy to celebrate with you the beginning of the new year at this unique international research platform, which is one of the best examples of Polish-Hungarian friendship,” said Dr. Gábor Tóth of the Ferenc Madel Institute of Comparative Law in Budapest.


W poprzednich edycjach analizowane były takie zagadnienia jak: mediacja, reforma sądownictwa administracyjnego, praworządność, prawo konstytucyjne, skuteczność wymiaru sprawiedliwości, zarządzanie w wymiarze sprawiedliwości, prawne aspekty sztucznej inteligencji, ochrona prawna osób starszych. – W tym roku  zajmiemy się  takimi obszarami badawczymi jak kwestia skuteczniejszej ochrony rolników, ochrony dzieci z niepełnosprawnościami, problematyką wolności sumienia w aspekcie instytucjonalnym oraz zwiększeniem skuteczności prawa w zakresie przeciwdziałania cyberprzestępczości – powiedział dr hab. Marcin Wielec, dyrektor Instytutu Wymiaru Sprawiedliwości i profesor Uniwersytetu Kardynała Stefana Wyszyńskiego w Warszawie.


The IWS director said that the three editions of the Polish-Hungarian Research Platform are a piece of good, fruitful and effective work that brings results. -Each edition ends with the publication of 4 books on research topics. So it’s easy to count that when this year’s research is over, we will have eleven publications with in-depth analyses by prominent legal scholars from Poland and Hungary,” Prof. Wielec stressed.


The Polish-Hungarian Research Platform 2023 project will establish four international research teams. Each team will be composed of prominent representatives of legal sciences, both theoreticians and practitioners of law. – At the request of the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Poland and after numerous consultations, we are proposing research in the areas of legal protection of farmers, children with disabilities, the issue of freedom of conscience in institutional aspects and cybercrime. Our goal is to conduct an in-depth study and an open discussion correlating the research problem and to develop de lege ferenda proposals, and our results should be applicable to both the theory and practice of law,” said Dr. Paweł Sobczyk, deputy director of the IWS and dean of the Faculty of Law and Administration at Opole University.


The work of the research teams will result in an in-depth analysis of 4 areas of law, the publication of at least 4 peer-reviewed monographs and 24 peer-reviewed scientific papers, and the organization of open scientific seminars and an international conference in November 2023.


The goal of the first research team is to develop proposals for legal solutions for more effective protection of farmers, as well as an in-depth analysis of such issues as livestock welfare, contemporary legal conditions of the agricultural real estate market and countering food waste.


The second team is to develop a proposal for a legal framework for more effective protection of children with disabilities. Important research topics are to include an assessment of existing and planned legislation in light of national and international law standards, as well as future challenges such as new technologies in terms of legal protection of children with disabilities.

The task of the third research team is to develop a draft of legal solutions regarding freedom of conscience in the institutional aspect. Important research topics include views on the doctrine of freedom, jurisprudence on freedom of conscience, as well as the activities of, for example, hospitals, health care facilities, schools, nursing homes, foundations, associations and commercial companies in this aspect.


The goal of the fourth scientific team is to prepare proposals for legal changes to increase the effectiveness of the fight against cybercrime. Among the important topics will be the study of solutions to increase the effectiveness of the law in this area, new types of cybercrime, proposals for methods to protect vulnerable groups from cybercrime, as well as current and future trends of such crimes.
