Summer and winter schools:

The Centre for Political Thought organises Summer Schools for the higher school students from the whole Poland. Until now, the following schools were organised:

Ethical foundations of politics

The Centre for Political Thought and the Tertio Millennio Institute organise Winter Schools on the social teaching of the Catholic Church. The participants are seminarists of the theological seminaries from the whole Poland and university students (approximately 50 people). The schools' director is Father Dr Maciej Zieba OP. These schools are organised under the auspices of the archbishop Józef Zycinski. So far, nine Winter Schools were carried out (Pasierbiec 1992, Pasierbiec 1993, Pasierbiec 1994, Wroclaw 1995, Wroclaw 1996, Jaroslaw 1997, Jaroslaw 1998, Jaroslaw 1999, Jaroslaw 2000).
