Belarusian identity: Presentation of an analytical product

Recently, profound changes have been taking place in Belarusian identity. They are partly related to current socio-political processes, and partly to long-term trends within society, business, and state structures.

We attempted to capture the changes in national identity for August—October 2020 with a specially designed ‘Identity Index’. What we want to present now is the first issue of  the Index, which is meant as a pilot one.

The presentation will take place on April 21, 5 pm Minsk time.
