#UkraineReforms project was launched in November 2014 by Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies in partnership with the Kyiv School of Economics, Reanimation Package of Reforms and Stronger Together

Project Mission

A successful transformation in Ukraine encompassing the rule of law, pluralist democracy and a functioning market economy is an essential condition for a peaceful and prosperous future not only in the country but for all of Europe as well. For that to happen the country needs to go through profound reforms. The urgency for reforms in Ukraine concerns measures which will have far-ranging effects on the Ukrainian population. Therefore, the way these reforms are perceived by the Ukrainian public is crucial and decisive for the success or failure of the entire reform process. #Ukraine Reforms campaign was launched under the leadership of President of Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies Mikuláš Dzurinda, former Prime Minister of Slovakia and successful country reformer, to bring together the expertise of senior EU decision makers in support of the reform process in Ukraine.

Project Overview

This transfer of experience is organised through public events, town-hall style meetings, TV debates, online articles and interviews. Senior European policy-makers that have already taken part in expert visits to Ukraine as part of the project include Mikulas Dzurinda, Ivan Miklos,  Andrius Kubilius, Leszek Balcerowicz, Juhan Parts, Jan Bielecki, Janez Jansa, Einars Repse, Ivan Kostov, Alojz Peterle.
