Information for JOURNALISTS
What can Belarus offer foreign journalists?
If you're a foreign journalist willing to report on Belarus and in Belarus, keep in mind that Belarus is ranked 157th in Reporters Without Borders' World Press Freedom Index - just above Pakistan and Egypt but lower than Myanmar or Singapore.
Belarusian Association of Journalists (BAJ) prepares annual press freedom reviews on Belarus - the latest can be downloaded here. Another useful resource on press freedom in Belarus is Freedom House's Press Freedom Index.
Those who are not discouraged by the less-than-welcoming environment for free press in Belarus, should apply for accreditation from Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This accreditation can be short-term or long-term. Find out more about that on Belarus MFA's webpage.
You can get news on Belarus in English from a handful of in-country sources as well; check some of them out below.
