A panel discussion on the future of EU-Belarus relations takes place on 14 October at the European Parliament in Brussels in the framework of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum (EaP CSF).
The panellists will deliberate on the effect of EU sanctions on Belarus while seeking to answer the major question of whether new geopolitical realities dictate an improvement in relations despite the flawed electoral processes and continued violations of human rights.
The Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum (EaP CSF) was established in 2009 following the Prague Summit, which launched the Eastern Partnership. The EaP CSF aims to support the development of civil society organisations and facilitate their dialogue with public authorities. The first EaP CSF took place in Brussels on 16-17 November 2009.
