Belarus is going through the process of transition to democracy. Afterwards, the country will need to go through a transformation and a reform process. There is no doubt that civil society will be actively involved in these processes to pursue freedom and responsibility, equality and justice, solidarity and subsidiarity, dignity of human life. The proof of active involvement of the society in political processes that are taking place at the moment is shown in horizontal activity of local initiatives in the cities and towns. These initiatives are fundamental cells of civil society in Belarus. This publication is divided into 4 parts analysing different grassroot initiatives and providing recommendations from other EU countries.
