In 1989 this date - April 5th - had been written into the history, and not only of Poland.  At that time - exactly 17 years ago - the agreement of two months lasting negotiations of the Polish Round Table had been signed. The event has led our entire region of the world toward the postsocialist transformation. What had brought the Round Table negotiations? What caused the collapse - or was it overthrown? - the previous system of the socialist centrally planned economy? What kind of expectation were there in Poland and other countries of the region in 1989 and what we were able to accomplish during the last 17 years? What major policy mistakes have been committed and why it did happen? Who are the losers and who are the gainers? What conclusions should be drawn from these experiences thus far and what we may expect and must be concerned for in the perspective of the next 17 years, until 2023? These are just some of the crucial questions for which we tried to answer during the special public lecture and seminar entitled "The Un-round Anniversary of the Round Table", presented by Professor Grzegorz W.
