This Working Paper focuses on the situation of the Belarusian minority in Poland, an autochthonous ethnic group which traditionally resides in the eastern parts of today's Podlaskie Voivodship and represents an integral part of the Belarusian-Polish borderland. The author argues that although Polish minority-related legislation formally complies with the international standards, its general effectiveness is significantly impeded by overall regional development of the Padliašša/Podlasie region.
