Reforms in Ukraine: Lessons learned

The Auditorium of the Finnish Institute of International Affairs; Ankkurikatu 5, 4th floor, Helsinki · 22.05.2017 10:00 - 11:30

In 2014 Ukraine launched a set of ambitious and potentially far-reaching political, economic and security reforms at the backdrop of weak statehood, dominance of corrupt elites and the conflict in the East. Three years since, the results are mixed, and though Ukraine made notable progress in a number of areas, main political and economic challenges are still to be resolved. This seminar analyses the progress achieved, and in particular discusses key factors behind Ukraine’s main achievements and failures. What are the main lessons that can be learned from the path of the Ukraine’s reforms and what is the current reform trajectory?
