O przywództwie polonijnym w rzeczywistości globalizacji świata

Andrzej Chodubski


This paper indicates that the development or decline in the activity of the Polish diasporato a large extent depends on how active its leaders are. It shows that the cultural andcivilizational reality generates a model of a leader – a participatory individual that solves bothhis own problems and the problems of his community. In the new civilizational reality, educa-tion and professional qualifications are becoming the basic criterion in social stratificationand one’s position in the system of socio-political governance.The picture of the Polish diaspora shows that its leaders are usually individuals with strongpersonalities; psychological features are of primary importance in individuals functioning inpublic life, including the complexities of life in a diaspora.At present, there are two typical models of leadership in the Polish diaspora. One points tothe representatives of the ‘old’ immigration, aiming to cultivate the traditional forms of lifeamong Polish émigrés. The other one represents the latest wave of émigrés, who support theimplementation of the values of the global civil society, where national and cultural diversityplays a significant role. In conclusion, it is noted that an important element that generates lead-ership among Polish émigrés is constituted by traditional political culture, including suchmythicized elements as Catholicism, anarchy, democratic ideas and the cult of modernity.
