In December 2010 the 1st conference on the history of anarchism was held in Poland, which was devoted to the history of Polish anarchism. Following the conference “Essays on the history of Polish anarchism” were published. On May 30, 2014 we will be celebrating the 200th anniversary of an outstanding thinker and anarchist activist Mikhail Bakunin and this will be the occasion for our conference. His personality was extraordinary, his contribution to the theory and practice of the socialist movement cannot be overestimated. It is also widely know that Bakunin supported Polish peoples liberation movement. We would like our conference to be part of a series of events in different European countries that aim to point out and emphasize the significance of Bakunin for the European political thought, especially the anarchist thought.
