Despite the fact that the IBA includes national bars of Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania and even Russia
(in the case of Ukraine, Russia and Poland – both territorial and national bars are involved), not a single Belarusian bar association is listed among the IBA members. However, you can find some statements and appeals related to Belarus on the organization's website –– those are usually devoted to the violations of the rights of Belarusian lawyers on the part of the state and the bodies of the Belarusian advocates’ self-regulatory bodies. In 2021, the IBA Prize was awarded to Belarusian lawyers; such an award is awarded annually to attorneys who have contributed to the development of human rights and the establishment of the rule of law.
