LL.M. in Human Rights and International Dispute Resolution

The increasing importance of human rights, their progressive internationalization and, at the same time, an increasingly diversified catalog of their sources necessitate the search for new and adequate methods of researching this issue.

Between a Europe of nations and a superstate – a report on the federalization of the European Union

Costs of family breakdown

The Collegium Intermarium university inaugurated the activity of the Family and Demography Research Center.

A Free University of Central Europe

The nations of our part of the world are connected by many shared characteristics and values. A common culture, respect for the past, and love for the achievements of European civilization, which is undermined by so many today. We love freedom, but we know that it lasts only when it is established in order.

Inaugural Conference of Collegium Intermarium

It is our wish that the inauguration of the university will also provide an opportunity for an in-depth discussion on the future of higher education and the unique development opportunities that currently stand before the Intermarium area.

Collegium Intermarium: a new university connecting academics from Central Europe

Collegium Intermarium is the first university registered in Poland after the great reform of the higher education system. Its mission is to build a platform of co-operation between academics from the countries of the Intermarium region. Multilingual study courses will start in October.

Collegium
Intermarium

Collegium Intermarium was established as an answer to the crisis of academic life. At a time when the sense of order, purpose, and meaning is fading away, our university has a fixed point of reference – unchanging ideas of Truth, Good, and Beauty. When there is less and less room for free academic debate, the Collegium is a space for scholars and students who are not afraid to pose serious questions. Taking up courageous challenges is not only a privilege, but the duty of everyone who co-creates the community of the university. When education has become mass, one-dimensional, and widespread, we remind about the true goal of education – integral human development. In the reality of the university, its condition is a direct cooperation between master and student. The Collegium brings together the elites of the Intermarium countries, whose nations were for decades deprived  of the opportunity to create their own academic institutions. It is not only a place to talk about the common culture and the diversity of traditions of our region – but above all about scientific, social, and economic cooperation both today and in the future. Our university is also a haven for all those who, in their search for freedom and order, are not afraid to refer to the achievements of previous generations, including the foundations of our civilization – Roman law, Greek love of truth, and the living heritage of Christianity. Upholding the classical idea of the university, Collegium Intermarium invites you to study and participate in postgraduate courses that develop the knowledge and skills of professionals.

Mission 

and values

Collegium Intermarium is set on the fundamental values of Western civilization, committment for reliable research and providing the highest qualifications for students. The mission of the University is also to educate the elites of the Intermarium region. Each student commencing education at the University will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and overall formation. The University’s program is focused on developing cooperation skills and is based on tutoring between the lecturer and the student.

Position and role of the expert witness in the Polish legal system

The position of the expert witness in the trial before Polish courts, both civil and criminal matters, is an excellent expression of our attachment to the classical definition of truth deriving from Aristotle's Metaphysics, then shaped by St. Thomas Aquinas, and put...

{Freedom of the mind requires not only, or not even especially, the absence of legal constraints but the presence of alternative thoughts. The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside

{You will be responsible for social order and the moral one, for order of thoughts and feelings. Be responsible for duties taken upon yourself, for space that you are taking in your homeland, in your nation and in your working life as well.

{Justice renders to everyone his due

Saint Thomas Aquinas

{This is the first precept of law, that “good is to be done and pursued, and evil is to be avoided.”

Alasdair MacIntyre

{What is the point and purpose of this ordering? For most of the students at Paris, Oxford, or elsewhere the point and purpose of their studies was—as it has been with students ever since—to acquire whatever qualification was needed, if they were to proceed successfully to the next stage in their chosen future career. For many therefore the point of their studies was—and is—to put those studies behind them. But from Aquinas’s view the point and pur-pose of a university education is to teach students that such a view of their studies is mistaken, that their studies are or should be designed to direct them toward the achievement of their final end as human beings, toward the achievement of a perfected understanding. And it was with this aim in view that Aquinas proposed this ordering of the different disciplinary enquiries.

{If then a practical end must be assigned to a University course, I say it is that of training good members of society. Its art is the art of social life, and its end is fitness for the world.
