Belarus: What’s Next?

This online event aims to discuss the recent developments in the country, focusing on the radical change within Belarusian society, the driving force of the revolution.

Mass protests have rocked Belarus since the 9 August presidential election, with thousands of people marching in Minsk and other cities throughout the country, demanding the resignation of Alyaksandr Lukashenka. The unprecedented wave of unrest was triggered by the results of the election, that handed Lukashenka a crushing victory with 80% of the vote. His main challenger, Svyatlana Tsikhanouskaya, and her supporters refused to recognise the validity of the result. In the first days after the vote, Belarusian authorities cracked down brutally on the protesters, detaining hundreds of protesters and prosecuting top activists. Many prominent members of the Coordination Council for the Transfer of Power have either been arrested or forced to leave the country. This online event aims to discuss the recent developments in the country, focusing on the radical change within Belarusian society, the driving force of the revolution. How can the EU support the nation’s transition to free and democratic elections? Will Putin give his unconditional support to the last dictator in Europe? These and other questions will be tackled during the discussion.

Expertengespräch

The World HandCOV’d: UK - Strategic dilemmas facing the UK in the post-corona world

he pandemic of the new coronavirus is on everyone’s mind. Besides the conspicuous immediate implications for our personal lives the unprecedented events unfolding in front of us seem to have historical magnitude. Even though most analysts agree that the global outbreak of the coronavirus, as a virological phenomenon, is in itself hardly a game-changer for world affairs, it looks increasingly likely that the repercussions of the reactions by governments around the globe will have a significant impact on the international system beyond the pandemic. Among the multitude of ongoing transformations, some will accelerate while others might slow down, take a halt or change direction. But since hardly any of them are likely to remain completely unaffected, it is fair to say that international politics as a whole have fallen captive to COVID-19.

What is currently happening around the world? What strategies are the national governments adhering to? What is the public attitude towards the present situation? In this series of online discussions, we will explore these questions with the country office directors of KAS as well as discuss the pandemic’s future implications on the economic, political and social life in their countries.

Leading Belarus to the EU

Rede von Alexander Milinkiewitsch auf dem EVP Kongress in Bonn

Das Schicksal der Demokratie in Belarus hänge von einer gut koordinierten Zusammenarbeit der belarussischen Zivilgesellschaft mit der Europäischen Union ab, erklärte Alexander Milinkiewitsch auf dem EVP-Kongress in Bonn am Mittwoch. Es gebe für sein Land keine Alternative als eine schrittweise Annäherung an die EU, betonte er. Europa dürfe aber nicht müde werden, in dem Dialog mit Belarus moralische Prinzipien zu betonen.
