Resolution of international conference "Human Rights and Combating Extremism" Document
On June 4, an international conference "Human Rights and Combating Extremism" took place in Minsk. The event was induced by the growing concern of the human right community in Belarus about the increase in incidents of prosecuting citizens for distribution of extremist materials. Intentionally for the conference, the human rights coalition has prepared a report on the antiextremist law-enforcement practice in Belarus including analysis of the current legislation.
The conference invited international experts to analyze the problem of combating extremism from the perspective of international standards in the field of human rights. Foreign experts also presented the analysis of the fight against extremism in Russia and the CIS countries. In addition, the issue of combating the distribution of extremist materials in Belarus has been discussed.
Following the conference, the Belarusian participants adopted a common resolution.
