Scope and Content of Collection

Pamphlets, serial issues, flyers, leaflets, election campaign literature, and other printed matter relating to various aspects of Belarusian history, and to political conditions and elections in Belarus following establishment of its independence.
An increment received in 2011 contains campaign material from the Belarusian presidential election of December 2010. The victory of Alexander Lukashenka in this election was never in doubt, although the opposition fielded a number of candidates. The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe called the election "flawed," and the European Union issued a strong statement condemning the violence (the beating of two opposition candidates) during the polling process. As a result of the violence and other irregularities, the opposition organized a mass protest, which was put down by government forces. Some of the opposition candidates who were bold enough to contest Lukashenka were arrested; some were sentenced to lengthy prison terms.
