In the past year, major reforms in Ukraine have proceeded slowly against a backdrop of President Petro Poroshenko’s consolidation of power, resistance from oligarchs, opposition in the parliament, and conflict in the country’s east and with Russia. Nonetheless, despite a slim and fragile parliamentary majority and continual accusations of corruption, the government has maintained reform momentum. At this pace, can Ukraine manage to overcome the daunting political, economic, social, and security challenges still facing the country?

Panel Discussion featuring:

  • Anastasiya Leukhina (Ukrainian expert)
  • Valerii Pekar (Ukrainian expert)
  • Balázs Jarábik (Carnegie)

This event will also mark the relaunch of Carnegie’s Ukraine Reform Monitor, which provides regular independent, fact-based, rigorous assessments of the scope and quality of reforms in Ukraine.

The first edition of the Ukraine Reform Monitor from April 2017 can be found here.

This event is part of Carnegie’s Reforming Ukraine project and is supported in part by grants from the Center for East European and International Studies (Zentrum für Osteuropa- und internationale Studien, ZOiS) and the Open Society Foundations.
