‘Belarus in Focus: Through the eyes of international journalists’
‘Belarus in Focus: Through the eyes of international journalists’ is the collection of winning articles from an international competition (www.focus.solidarityby.eu) for both citizen and professional journalists held by Solidarity with Belarus Information Office in cooperation with Press Club Polska in 2011.
The fourteen articles by authors from eight countries (Belarus, Germany, Latvia, United States, United Kingdom, Poland, Slovenia, Spain) explore the aftermath of the 2010 presidential elections – from the mass searches and trials to the ‘silent protests’, to relations with the EU; the economic crisis that gripped Belarus between July and August 2011; as well as the artistic expression of political discontent and dreams for the future in music and theatre. The year 2011 is also documented with images by professional Belarusian photographers. The book is in English and Belarusian.
The project ’Belarus in Focus’ was kindly supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
’Belarus in Focus: Through the eyes of international journalists’ was presented during a series of press conferences and roundtables (http://spotlight.solidarityby.eu/activities) held in five European capitals (Brussels, Berlin, Warsaw, Budapest, Prague) in May 2012.
