Crisis in Belarus. How should the West respond?
A special new Policy Paper co-published with the Institute of Central Europe is now available.
This special series of IEŚ Policy Papers is the result of collaboration between the Institute of Central Europe in Lublin, the New Eastern Europe journal, together with international researchers from American and Canadian universities including Harvard University (George Soroka), University of Alberta (David R. Marples), and European and Polish institutions such as: EAST Center and the German Marshall Fund of the United States, Warsaw office (Veranika Laputska), New Eastern Europe (Maxim Rust) and the Polish Academy of Sciences (Agata Kleczkowska). We would like to give our special thanks to the authors for their commitment to providing their input and analysis on Belarus’s domestic situation and how the West should react. We hope that this special series of the IEŚ Policy Papers will be well received by readers and will encourage experts who study Belarusian politics to continue their research.
