Dr. Marek Jan Chodakiewicz mentioned in article on Intermarium concept

Dr. Marek Jan Chodakiewicz, Kosciuszko Chair in Polish Studies at The Institute of World Politics, was recently referenced in an article in East/West: Journal of Ukrainian Studies. The article, titled “The Intermarium in Ukrainian and Polish Foreign Policy Discourse,” was written by Oleksii Polegkyi and discusses the Intermarium concept in the context of Polish-Ukrainian security relations. Polegkyi mentions Dr. Chodakiewicz as a leading authority on the Intermarium, the idea of strong interstate relations between Baltic and Black Sea states as a counter to Russian influence in the region.

Polegkyi also references Dr. Chodakiewicz’s book on the concept: Intermarium: The Land between the Black and Baltic Seas. Polegkyi uses the book to reaffirm his argument that Polish survival, and the survival of other Intermarium states, may depend on this hypothetical grouping.

At IWP, Dr. Chodakiewicz holds the Kosciuszko Chair in Polish Studies and is the director of the Center for Intermarium Studies. He teaches courses on Geography and Strategy, Russian Politics and Foreign policy, and Contemporary Global Politics. His full bio is here.
