Ukraine – Prospects for 2018

22 January 2018


Ukraine has come a long way since Maidan. In the past few years, there have been many positive developments, especially in the areas of decentralisation, rule of law, and energy. However, recently, the speed of reforms has slowed down, with even some open attacks on the newly formed anti-corruption institutions. The upcoming presidential elections in 2019 will be a precarious moment, and could decide which path Ukraine will take in the near future. At this Policy Dialogue, a panel of experts discussed the reasons for the slowdown of the reform process, the many challenges the country is still facing, both internal and external, and what Ukraine’s prospects are for 2018.

Speakers included: Amanda Paul, Senior Policy Analyst at the EPC, Svitlana Kobzar, Programme Officer (East), European Endowment for Democracy; Assistant Professor, Vesalius College, Peter Wagner, Head of Ukraine Support Group, European Commission, Bruno Lété, Senior Fellow, the German Marshall Fund of the United States, Artem Remizov, Researcher, Centre for European Policy Studies
