Jakub J. Grygiel Joins
CEPA As Senior Fellow
In Residence

Will lead Center’s work on Strategy and Statecraft

WASHINGTON, February 23, 2016 – Dr. Jakub J. Grygiel joins the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) as a Senior Fellow in Residence. At CEPA he will chair a new Strategy and Statecraft Program while advancing research on the future of security and geo-strategy in Central Europe.

“Jakub is one of the finest geopolitical thinkers of his generation on either side of the Atlantic,” said CEPA President A. Wess Mitchell. “He has a grasp for the big picture and perspective as a classicist thinker that are rare in our headline-driven era. CEPA is proud to add someone of his depth, stature and integrity to our growing institute.”

Grygiel has a distinguished career as a scholar, analyst and author. Prior to CEPA, he was the George H. W. Bush Associate Professor at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies. He has worked as a consultant for the OECD in Paris and the World Bank in Washington, and was an international security commentator for the Swiss newspaper Giornale del Popolo (Lugano, Ticino). Grygiel’s forthcoming book on the challenges of barbarians will be published by Cambridge University Press. His latest book, “The Unquiet Frontier,” co-authored with A. Wess Mitchell, was published by Princeton University Press in 2016. His writings on international relations and security studies have appeared in The American Interest, Journal of Strategic Studies, Orbis, Commentary, Joint Forces Quarterly, Political Science Quarterly, as well as U.S., Swiss, Polish and Italian newspapers.

CEPA is a non-profit policy institute dedicated to the study of Central and Eastern Europe with offices in Washington and Warsaw. Since its creation in 2005, CEPA has grown rapidly to become a leading voice for strengthening security and democracy in the countries of post-Communist Europe. The institute’s mission is to promote an economically vibrant, strategically secure and politically free Central and Eastern Europe with close and enduring ties to the United States. Through written analysis and public events, CEPA educates policymakers on the need for sustained engagement, helps transatlantic businesses navigate changing strategic landscapes and builds networks of future leaders.
