Belarus: the aftermath of a perfect storm (Part 1)
Play • 26 min

2020 was a hectic year for many reasons, but for Belarussians it was the year when something unexpected happened, something that had never happened before, since Alexander Lukashenko has been president of the country, 26 years ago.

People on the streets gathering, social media bursting with evidence of human rights violations, communities gathering together to talk, think and dream about change.

Why now, and what next? On this last episode of the first season, we talk with Ognjen Radjonic, manager of ForumCiv´s Eastern Europe regional office, about the different forces that combined to build up the perfect storm.
