Abstract

European Dilemmas in Belarus – Political Game or Illusion?

The policy of the European Union towards Belarus violating human rights did not bring expected results. In view of the so far inefficient strategy of co-operation with the unwanted regime, the change of the attitude to Belarusian authorities seems necessary. After the years of authoritative regime, also in Belarus there is a need for evolutionary internal changes and for the readjustment to the changing geopolitical situation. A worsening economic situation and growing problems in relations with Russia made the Belarusian authorities rebuild satisfactory political and economic relations with the European Union. It is essential to ask if this tendency is permanent or it is another tactical manoeuvre on the spur of the moment. The Belarusian party proposes to determine the economic dimension as the major dialogue area, leaving out the political issues. That is why it is highly probable that the Belarusian gestures of goodwill are elements of political game and balancing in order to gain short-lived temporary economic benefits.
