About the project

Aware of multiple ethical and sociopolitical challenges resulting by the rapid spread of SARS-CoV-2, the BISS team launched the special research-and-policy project 'Covid19. Optimal Solutions in a Situation of Uncertainty.'

The main goals of the project are the following: 1) analysis of various responses to the coronavirus pandemic; 2) assessment of short- and long-term risks entailed by particular responses; 3) making practical recommendations on how best to deal with the pandemic in Belarus; 4) building horizontal solidarity for dealing with the pandemic's consequences in Belarus.

The main focus is on the situation in Belarus, but we also pay much attention to the global context.
