The Polish Institute of International Affairs is an analytical institution established by an act of Parliament in 1996 to carry out research and provide expertise in international affairs. PISM disseminates information on contemporary international issues and maintains contacts with academic and political centres in Poland and abroad. The Institute runs courses for public servants, maintains a library (open to the public; 165,000 books and journals), organises conferences, and publishes books, periodicals and documents on Polish foreign policy and international matters.

The funding for PISM comes from the budget. The director is appointed by the prime minister for a term of five years, following consultation with the minister of foreign affairs. The minister supervises the Institute and appoints its advisory council, which includes a representative of the President of the Republic of Poland, academics and officials.The Trump administration intended to robustly respond to the “immediate” missile and nuclear threat from North Korea. Its strategy would be, to a large extent, a continuation of previous policy. A new element, though, was pressure on China to take full advantage of its leverage over Kim Jong Un’s regime. Growing tensions on the Korean Peninsula could have significant implications on the relationship between the U.S. and its European allies.
