Presidential elections in Belarus
The 19th of December the presidential elections will take place in Belarus. Together with our Belarusian colleagues we will monitor the situation extra carefully during the remaining two months. We fear that the persecution of civil activists, non-governmental organizations, independent journalists and pro-democratic politicians will intensify.
From today on we will publish news from Belarus on our homepage. Among other things you can read the compile made by Belarusian Association of Journalists about the reporting of the presidential elections in Belarusian media.
In cooperation with more than 50 Belarusian and international organisations we regularly compile reports regarding the human rights situation in Belarus. The reports capture key developments concerning civil society in Belarus and are designed to inform policymakers about developments in Belarus during the ongoing EU-Belarus Dialogue Process. In October, the EU will again consider its future relations with Belarus and the possibility of sanctions.News.
