    Sprawa deportacji Johna Bagota Glubba z Jordanii. Z badań nad kryzysem dominacji brytyjskiej w świecie arabskim w 1956 r.
    (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego, 2013) Wróblewski, Bartosz
    John Bagot Glubb is an almost unknown person to Polish readers. He was the commanding general of the Jordanian Army in the1940s and 50s. J.B.Glubb played a very important role in the politics of the Middle East. The article is based on British political correspondence and monographs which describe the relationship between Great Britain and Jordan. The article presents the career of J.B. Glubb and his powerful position in the Jordan government between 1946 – 1956. His unique position was a symbol of the political power which the British government had in this region at that time. J.B. Glubb was suddenly deposed from the Jordan government on 1 – 2 March 1956 . The main aim of the article is to emphasize why his demission was such a political sensation in 1956. That deposal was connected with a decline of British power in this region. The government in London previously had a great influence on Middle Eastern politics and they directed national politics from behind the scenes. J.B. Glubb was at the same time a faithful subject of the Jordanian monarchy and the ideal person to lead informal policy in the behalf of the British government.

    Stanowisko Parlamentu Europejskiego wobec procesu stowarzyszeniowego Ukrainy z Unią Europejską
    (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego, 2013) Staszczyk, Artur
    The article discusses the role played by the European Parliament (EP) in the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. The aim of this process is to establish a close and mutual political and economic cooperation on both sides. By stressing the importance of EP as the only EU body having democratic legitimacy, and thus defines itself as a "guardian of democracy" in the modern world, analyzing its position on the conclusion of an EU association agreement with Ukraine. It should be noted that the EP pays particular attention in the context of the association to the development of democracy in Ukraine and its respect of democratic standards. This authority recognizing the geopolitical importance of Ukraine is in favour of deepening the EU's cooperation with that country through the conclusion of an association agreement and calls for granting Ukraine a potential European perspective. However, what is worth noting the EP in numerous resolutions makes conditional the progress in the bringing Ukraine to the EU from the incorporation of the values defined as European (democracy, rule of law, protection of minorities, etc.) by Kiev. Therefore, events that indicate a crisis of democracy in Ukraine pay such important matter for the European Parliament (e.g. the imprisonment of opposition politicians, including former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko) to which the authorities usually adopt a clearly negative position, often contrasting with more "balanced" opinions of other EU institutions.
