What do the events in Belarus tell us about previous academic attempts to understand Belarus: its dictatorship, its politics, its foreign policy? What do the events tell us about the politics of protest? And what is the significance for the wider region? Andrew Wilson's book 'Belarus:  The Last European Dictatorship' will be published in a new updated paperback edition in Spring 2021 to cover the events of this summer.

Registration is free but essential via Zoom.
