Poland’s membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization influenced the change of the national security system of our country. Important transformations took place primarily in foreign and economic policy as well as in the sphere of military security of Poland. The Armed Forces of the Republic of Poland, functioning so far mainly in the state defense system, faced the task of participating in the collective defense system of NATO and were prepared to carry out stabilization and preventive tasks during peace and emergency response tasks during the war, including tasks carried out also outside the country. In the article, the author undertook an attempt to analyze the nature of involvement in the conflict on the territory of Kosovo of the Polish Armed Forces as part of the KFOR operation. In its analysis, it took into account the scope and nature of the participation of the Polish military contingent in the KFOR operation and attempted to define its role in building security in Kosovo.
