Poland’s former Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski has been appointed by Harvard University’s Center for European Studies as a non-resident Senior Fellow.
Sikorski, who was a key figure of the Civic Platform government serving as a Foreign minister from 2007 to 2014 and a Marshall of the Sejm, stepped down from his position in June 2015, following the so called Waitergate affair, in which illegally made recordings of prominent politicians were published.
Sikorski will be expected to“participate in CES activities, engage in seminars and discussions with the faculty and students, and help to advance the academic mission of CES by stimulating new thinking and research in Europe,” a statement issued by Harvard University said.
“I am delighted to share my experience of Polish and European politics with the American faculty and students,” Sikorski said.
“The pursuit of ‘Veritas,’ as in Harvard’s motto, is always exciting,” he added.
