Democracy and young people
Belarusian National Youth Council RADA is a voluntary union of 32 youth associations, being created with the purpose of consolidating of youth organizations and initiatives of Belarus. “RADA” operates in the areas of representation, promotion and defending common interests and freedoms of youth organizations and young people of Belarus. Unfortunately, because of the political situation in the country and restrictions imposed by the state on the freedom of association, the Belarusian National Youth Council was liquidated in 2006 by the decision of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Belarus. Since then RADA has been operating underground as many other youth organizations and activists repressed by the authorities. In 2014, RADA registered a technical office in Lithuania in order to provide legal safety and to make its work more transparent. Regardless the unfavorable conditions created for the civil society organizations in the country, RADA continues its work for the benefit of the Belarusian youth and Belarus.
