In March 2017 GEOP organized Museums and Their Publics at Sites of Conflicted History – an interdisciplinary conference which brought together about 220 scholars and professionals from over 25 countries.

In 2018, within Global Education Outreach Program were organized two significant international conferences. “March ’68: 50 Years later” explored the causes, events, and results of the anti-Semitic campaign of the 1960s from various perspectives. “November Hopes: Jews and the Independence of Poland in 1918”, which took place at the end of the year, brought together researchers from Poland, Germany, United States, Canada, and Israel. POLIN Museum also hosted a series of lectures, entitled: “Old and New Questions”, throughout the year.
