Ukraine: A Captured State? How to Put the Country Back onto the Path to Reform
Konferenz | Berlin | 26.05.2016 | 9:00 - 15:30 Uhr | DGAP
The resignation of the Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and the decreasing public support for the current leadership highlight the decline of Ukraine’s reform process. This development forces the EU, as Ukraine’s most important partner, to pressure the Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko and the new Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman to implement serious and sustainable changes.
This conference gathers experts from both Ukraine and EU member states to discuss the current state of the Ukrainian reform process and to identify instruments that could revitalize it. What reforms are needed to stimulate the economy? How can one sever the close ties between oligarchs, corrupt politicians, and officials in the legal system? What measures are needed to establish an independent judiciary and public prosecution based on the rule of law, not only to fight corruption but also to increase the public’s trust in the state?
