The EU and Belarus: seizing the opportunity? (2016:13epa)
Författare: 

The relation between the EU and Belarus through the Eastern Partnership framework is complex. The country's domestic authoritarian character as well as its foreign policy balancing act between the EU and the Eurasian Economic Union hinders the implementation of major reform packages. In this European Policy Analysis, the writer outlines a roadmap for long-term political engagement between the EU and Belarus on a technical-sectoral level, based on international norms and values.

The publication is in English and is part of SIEPS´ research project The EU as a global power.
