On 30 June the assembly of teachers and students of the Institute of Contemporary Knowledge was held in Minsk. At the assembly the intention to liquidate the three branches of the institute in Vitsiebsk, Hrodna and Bierastsie as well as the department of law and social technologies in Minsk was declared. It was also said that the liquidation was initiated by the Ministry of Education, which considered that the education at these units of the institute didn’t meet the present standards.

According to the assembly participants the real reason is that the institute is private, that’s why he will follow the fate of Iakub Kolas Humanities University and European Humanities University.

The Institute of Contemporary Knowledge was established in 1990 and is the first non-state educational establishment of the country. It educates specialists in economy, law, humanities and art criticism.
