Dr. Weronika Priesmeyer-Tkocz
Granica? Jaka granica? For EAB seminar director Dr. Weronika Priesmeyer-Tkocz, barriers or frontiers are there in order to be overcome. Even before EU enlargement to the east, the student of political sciences moved from Wroclaw to Berlin. And years before the crisis in the Crimea she explained to readers of her doctoral thesis that the Polish-Ukrainian border was not of necessity the EU eastern border. In the Academy Weronika designs major and minor projects and, in her function as coordinator of the seminar directors’ team, ensures that programmatic planning continually breaks new ground both thematically and methodologically. And there is also a practical contribution which ‘WPT’ of course is making towards integration in Europe: this is through her wholehearted commitment to German-Polish relations.
