The Polish Green Movement ten years after the fall of communism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In 1996 the Polish sociologist and Green activist Piotr Glinski summarised the state of the Polish Green movement thus: 'This movement is on the road: from opposition to citizen participation; from an elitist isolated counter-culture to civil society; from the emotive to the pragmatic; and, finally, from informal spontaneity to mature institutionalisation and professionalisation'.1 Poland's parliamentary elections of September 2001 represent an opportunity to assess how far along this road the country's Green movement has travelled.
