In 2020, the name “Belarus” sounded loudly. The previously hardly noticed country seems to gradually appear on the mental map of EU citizens. At the same time, Belarusian history cannot be thought of without European history. And vice versa? Is the Belarusian history considered as a part of the European one?
In our presentation we will not only make a short excursion into the changeful history of Belarus, but we will also discuss the current situation in the country and try to show continuity but also the breaks on the way of Belarus to Europe.
You could join us on zoom with following speakers:
