Only 1,2% of Belarusian population in age from 14 and older are involved in civic education programs that are put in practice by the Belarusian non-governmental organizations. These are results of the analysis of the civic education sector in Belarus that was prepared in 2013 by the “Office for European expertise and communication” (Minsk) and “Office for democratic Belarus” (Brussel).

“Today more than 40 NGOs are working in the civic education sector. In spite of legal base in Belarus that doesn’t forbid non-governmental organizations to participate in civic education processes, cases of their inclusion in lists of executors of governmental programs are rare”, remark the authors.
