Biography

Adam Ploszka graduated from the University of Warsaw with an M.A. law (first place in the 2013 class) and a B.A. in international relations. His doctoral degree in law, with distinction, is from the Faculty of Law and Administration of the University of Warsaw, for the thesis, ‘The Public-law Status of an Extremely Poor Person’. His Ph.D. thesis was rewarded by a well-known Polish scientific publisher. Adam is the author of many scientific publications on human rights, case law of the European Court of Human Rights and constitutional law.

Adam also practised law for many years; he worked at the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights, conducting cases related to freedom of media and freedom of speech. He also coordinated the HFHR’s educational programme for students, the Law Clinic Human Rights and Taxes. Adam also became a member of the Warsaw Bar Association in 2017 and worked in one of the law firms based in Warsaw where he focussed on human rights and criminal law.

At the EUI, Adam will be working on his new project, ‘At the origins of illiberal democracy. The relationship between the constitutional socioeconomic status of an individual, populism and the rule of law’.
