Wojciech Fałkowski, PhD is an Undersecretary of State in the Ministry of National Defence. He is a university professor and historian specializing in the Middle Ages.

After graduating from the University of Warsaw, he was appointed as an assistant at the university, but Professor Fałkowski’s employment was terminated because of his support for the workers of Ursus following the June 1976 protests. He was active with the Workers' Defence Committee (KOR) and took part in organizing underground publications, remaining without employment until the creation of “Solidarity”. He was subsequently reinstated at the university, where Professor Fałkowski earned a doctoral degree in 1986. From 1993 to 2001 he was the Secretary General of the Polish Committee for UNESCO. Professor Fałkowski received tenure in 2000. After two years he became an Adviser to Lech Kaczyński, Mayor of Warsaw. He was the head of the team that estimated the losses of the city during World War II.
For four years (2008-2012) Professor Fałkowski lectured at the Paris-Sorbonne University as a Visiting Professor. He has been a full professor since 2003. Professor Fałkowski is the longtime chairman of the Standing Committee of Polish Medievalists (2003-2012) and, since 1994, is the Chief Editor of the international scholarly yearbook "Quaestiones Medii Aevi Novae".

He was awarded the Gold Cross of Merit, Knight's Cross of the Order of Polonia Restituta, and Latvian Officer's Cross of the Order of Merit.

Professor Fałkowski is married and has four children.
