Workshop on a Concept for Local Self-Government Reform in Belarus

On 21 February 2013, the Swedish Association of local authorities and regions International (SKL International) and the NGO Lev Sapieha Foundation, ALDA's main partner in Belarus, held a workshop in Vilnius gathering experts and actors in local democracy such as Stefan Ericsson, Former Swedish ambassador to Belarus.

This event provided the participants the possibility to discuss Lev Sapieha Foundation’s proposal for reform of the system of local self-government in Belarus. ALDA took part in the roundtable together with The Congress of Local Authorities from Moldova (CALM) and other experts. ALDA shared with the participants how this proposal can be linked to the work of the Civil Society Forum and could be further linked to CORLEAP and discussions in the Eastern Partnership process. The discussions went in to details of how the local self-government system in Belarus could be reformed, but also concerned the challenges triggered by political constraints in Belarus.
