 The Center of the Political Analysis and Prognosis presents:
“WOMEN-CANDIDATES” FOR PRESIDENCY AS A PUPPET FOR DICTATORS: POST-SOVIET COUNTRIES SPACE

Elections in Belarus and actual presidential campaign in Russia shows the new political tendency, such as using women as alternative, so-called background candidates. Why women are involved into this process, what does it mean for societies? Does it create a better condition for the “elegant victory” for dictators?

We will try to find the answer with experts:

Olga Lavrinenko – Russian political scientist, is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology, Polish Academy of Science. Center for the Political Analysis and Prognosis.

Veronica Laputska – Research Fellow at EAST Center, PhD Candidate at the Polish Academy of Sciences.

Oleksandra Iwaniuk – Is a PhD candidate at Maria Curie-Skłodowska University specialising in elites’ studies.

Moderator Dr. Pavel Usov.

The events will take place in Warsaw 15.11 in the Belarusian House to the address Wiejska 13, lok 3 at 3:00 p.m.

Maciej Falkovski: Poland is not ignorant to what is happening in the neighboring Belarus

Maciej FalkowskiBelarus has been and remains one of the priorities for the Polish Fund of International Solidarity.

Maciej Falkovski feels special sentiment towards Belarus: while a student, almost twenty years ago, he traveled across our country on a bicycle. He hopes to repeat the journey again one day.
On 11-22 September the annual conference on Human Dimension (HDIM) for OSCE member states will be held in Warsaw.
On the first day of the forum there will be a side-event “Human Rights in Belarus – from the cases of patriots to the cases of trade unions”, organized by the Belarusian House in Warsaw.
President of the Polish Foundation of International Solidarity Maciej Falkovski is the guest from the Belarusian Truth.
– Conference on the Human Dimension (HDIM) for the OSCE member states will take place in Warsaw, like in previous years. Why has Poland traditionally been the venue for the forum?
The answer to this is seemingly simple, because ODIHR is located in Warsaw – the office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights. However, this answer is not complete, the choice of the location of the office in Poland was not accidental. In the struggle for freedom, democracy and respect for human rights Poland has always played a special role in Europe, especially in Central and Eastern Europe.
