On April 10, the 3rd Belarus Reality Check meeting took place in Brussels organized by the EESC and the European Endowment for Democracy (EED, Brussels) with the support of Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (Germany) and Pact (US). The event gathered together key international and Belarusian experts as well as donors and policy makers.
The Reality Check policy review is held under Chatham House rules. This allows different local and international perspectives to be presented and encourages the emphasis on facts and evidence.
As a result of the meeting, the peer review non-paper was released aiming to contribute to the policy debate on Belarus, in particular at a time when it is being strongly influenced by the crisis in Ukraine. The Belarusian Reality Check Non-Paper No 3, as well as previous policy papers, is access free and can be downloaded here.
