  Abstract:  

This paper`s aim is to show the influence of the notion of `knowledge economy` on Polish politics and political discourse. Knowledge economy, a concept developed by social scientists, was brought forward by institutions such as the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development, the World Bank or the European Union and is currently followed and replicated by documents, theories, strategies and opinions. The text considers knowledge economy to be an actively employed utopia and ideology among politicians and professionals. In the paper I illustrate my thoughts with two examples: legislative and public education reforms. In those two spheres, I stress how the utopia of `knowledge economy` is employed and outline its role in the state reform process.

Keywords: knowledge economy, Poland, Central and Eastern Europe
