The new long-term large-scale project “How to get rid of Post-Sovietness?” has been launched in the Institute of World Policy. It is being implemented by IWP in partnership with the Georgian Foundation for Strategic and International Studies (Tbilisi, Georgia) and the Institute for Development and Social Initiatives “Viitorul” (Chisinau, Moldova) with support of the Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation of the German Marshall Fund of the US. National expert teams from Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine will be working on this project.

The first project event took place on May 31, 2012. It was an expert discussion (“brainstorming”) on the methodology of the project and indicators of post-Sovietness in politics and social affairs that would be measured within the framework of the project. Experts from three participating countries took part in it.

Ukraine was represented by the professor of the Department for Ukrainian Language of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy Larysa Masenko; the deputy director of the Institute of Sociology (National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine) Eugen Golovacha; the director of the Center for Applied Political Studies “Penta” Volodymyr Fesenko; the head of the Department for Social Psychology (National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine) Olena Zlobina and the political observer of the newspaper Weekly Mirror Volodymyr Kravchenko.
