GCSP Global Fellowship-in-Residence, Mr Adam Koniuszewski, was published in the June 2018 edition of the “UN Special” Magazine.

In his article entitled, “General Kosciuszko, a man ahead of his time,” Mr Koniuszewski discusses the significance of human rights advocate, General Tadeusz Kosciuszko, the builder of West Point, the world’s most famous military academy.

Back in March 2018, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) hosted a public discussion on the extraordinary life and deeds of Gen. Tadeusz Kosciuszko, a Polish military engineer, statesman and military leader, who not only became a national hero in his own country, but also played a pivotal role in the War of Independence and advocated for the manumission of African slaves in the United States.
