Maciej Kisilowski

Strategist, public management scholar


Maciej's talk will be in English.

Knowing that strategically focused, knowledge intensive public-sector institutions are a prerequisite to successful, flourishing economies, Maciej Kisilowski is driven by a passion for identifying and promoting non-dogmatic approaches to public management and public law. He  established and co-directs the Initiative for Regulatory Innovation, a research centre at the Business School of the Central European University (CEU), focused on finding creative and innovative solutions to regulatory problems in Central and Eastern Europe.

At CEU, Maciej also works as an Associate Professor of Law and Public Management, specializing in the executive education of senior business and governmental managers with a practical, problem-oriented approach. He designed and teaches a number of graduate classes, including a course on the Legal, Political and Policy Environment of the Market (LPPE), which integrates tools of legal, political-economic, and policy analysis to help executives strategically manage their interactions with governments. 

Maciej holds a doctorate and a master’s degree from Yale Law School, an MPA in economics and public policy from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs as well as an MBA with distinction from Insead. In his native Poland he co-founded and led a number of educational NGOs. His research appears in leading journals, including Law and Social Inquiry and International Business Review, while his commentary on current affairs has been featured, among others, in Foreign Policy, Politico, Project Syndicate, EU Observer, Eur Active and Euronews. He is a co-author of Administrategia, Central Europe’s first practical guide on strategic management of public institutions, which has been translated into Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, and Ukrainian.
