Foreign Affairs Club at Warsaw School of Economics (SGH) is an organisation uniting university students with an interest for international relations, the current political landscape and diplomacy. Our main objective is to deepen our understanding of current issues and to share that understanding objectively with our academic community.
Our organisation was founded in 2000 under the Department of European Integration of SGH. Since then prof. Elżbieta Kawecka-Wyrzykowska has been our tutor. We have become one of the most active groups within the university. Among our members are students of economics, finance, law. We organise debates, study trips, film screenings and unique projects. We also assist our university during visits of foreign officials.
