Columbia International Affairs Online: Working Papers

The Polish Institute of International Affairs


The Polish Institute of International Affairs (PISM) was set up under an act of Parliament dated December 20, 1996. The organisation of the Institute commenced in 1999 and the first employees joined PISM in 2000.

PISM replaced an entity bearing the same name which had existed between 1947 and 1993 as a research institute operating under the auspices of  the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA). It was closed by Krzysztof Skubiszewski, the then minister. The PISM library and the employees were taken over by the MFA while PISM publications were handed to the Polish Foundation of International Affairs.

In 2002 custody of the library returned to PISM.
