The IWP started the advocacy campaign to support the European integration of UkraineUnder the Institute of World Policy initiative, city lights were placed on the central street of Kyiv under the title “There is a better side of Europe” Four layouts were designed to demonstrate the advantages of integration of Ukraine into the European Union. Among them:
The need for the campaign is justified by the fact that Ukraine has reached a key stage in its cooperation with the European Union: it depends from Ukrainian government whether Ukraine will be able to sign the Association Agreement by the end of 2013.
The campaign of IWP is a reminder for Ukrainian politicians about the kind of state they need to build. It is also a reminder for Ukrainian citizens about what kind of country they should demand from their government.
The next phase of the advocacy campaign is that of “Street universities” across the regions of Ukraine, which will be devoted to European integration.
This campaign is part of the project “Soft Power of Ukraine in the European Union”
that is implemented under “Ukraine National Initiatives to Enhance Reforms” (UNITER), funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Pact in Ukraine
