Dr Agata Fijalkowski

Lecturer, Director of ELS Degree, University of Lancaster.

Studied at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Was a Fulbright Scholar in Poland (1992-1994), where she carried out research on Polish courts in the post-Communist period. She received her Ph.D. entitled, Rule of Law Revived: The Polish Experience, 1918-1998, at the University of London in 2000. She also has worked in the field of international law in the Netherlands and, most recently, was a Europa-Fellow at the Europa-Universität Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany, where she began post-doctoral (Habilitation) research concerning the judicial decision-making of the Polish Supreme and appellate courts in the post-Communist period. The project is her most current work-in-progress. One of her main interests concerns legal transformation and the growth of legal culture in Central and Eastern Europe (and how this fits into the broader European context), as well as developments in other post-totalitarian/authoritarian states in the criminal justice and civil liberties/human rights area.
