The project aims to create a network of civil society organisations and experts for a democratic Belarus, in the cooperation with German, Polish and Belarusian partners. The project is based on a Working Group (“Arbeitskreis Belarus”) of German organisations interested in Belarus. It brings together around 100 institutions/experts (as of March 30, 2021). As part of the project, numerous activities with civil society and expert institutions are planned, such as online talks/networking, expert discussions/scenario workshops and strategic documents on Belarus, advocacy activities, co-organisation of the Congress for Belarus, a monthly newsletter about Belarus, institutional support and know-how for the Belarusian diaspora in Germany.
As a part of this initiative, we co-organised in November 2022 the Roundtable about Belarus. It took place in our castle in Wojnowice. Aureliusz Marek Pędziwol kindly shared his photos from the event with us.
