Dr. Andrei Fedarau at Georgetown on March 24th, 2009


U.S.-Belarus Relations: Current Issues & Future Directions

Dr. Andrei Fedarau Fulbright Scholar

Tuesday, March 24th at 12pm, Room ICC 462

This talk will illuminate the current state of Belarus-US relations and consider possible scenarios for the future.  The Republic of Belarus and the United States do not enjoy a positive diplomatic relationship.  This is surprising, given the potential that existed in the early 1990s.  The main reasons for the strained relations are the lack of democratic and market transformations in Belarus.  Yet though many post-Soviet states can be described in this way, their relationship with US is not affected in this way.

Dr. Fedarau was awarded the PhD in Physics. He worked at the Institute of Physics of Belarus' Academy of Sciences, then in the Supreme Council (parliament) of Belarus, as a head of International Relations Department. Since 1997, he has worked as an independent journalist and analyst of international relations and security.
