During the panel discussion, invited Ukrainian and EU-based experts discussed a wide range of questions, in particular: How much progress has been made with the reforms? Is the Ukrainian government doing enough? Is support from the international community sufficient to help Ukraine in these difficult times? What is the impact of the recent local elections on the situation in the country, and on the territories affected by the conflict?

Last week on 26th of November the research was presented to the Ukrainian stakeholders in Kyiv.

The research is a material for discussion, so we invite Ukrainian and foreign experts to express their comments and observations. The final version of policy brief will be published later.

This project is implemented under Ukraine National Initiatives to Enhance Reforms (UNITER) program, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Pact Inc.
