Wymiar komunikacyjny konfliktu dotyczącego zmian funkcjonowania władzy sądowniczej w Polsce (2016–2021)

Strony: 117-129



In 2016 the government of the national-conservative Law and Justice party launched a reform of the Polish justice system. In an effort to increase the effectiveness of its operation, the authorities de facto sought to increase the influence of the executive over the judiciary. Two polarized camps (supporters and opponents of the reforms) were thus formed in the political and media landscapes. Various forms of communication played an important role in their activities. The article is devoted to the analysis of the structure of actors and the instruments they used to promote or disavow the proposed changes, influence public opinion and create the image of themselves and their opponents.
