Public Discussion: “The Future of Belarus in the Shadow of the War”, October 27 (LIIA, Latvia)

Since the onset of the war in neighboring Ukraine, Belarus has almost disappeared from the agenda of regional policymakers. The question of how to support the opposition and civil society of Belarus to help ensure its sovereign, democratic status is ever more pertinent.
