12:17 PM 1-3-2017

IWP analyst Daria Gaidai represented the Institute of World policy at the UkraineLab 2017: Fair of project ideas in Support of Reforms in Ukraine, which was organised by the Ukrainian Think Tanks Liaison Office in Brussels on the 22nd February 2017.

The event was conducted with the support of the European Endowment for Democracy, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, the Mission of Canada to the EU and the International Renaissance Foundation.

The first panel of the Lab was devoted to the reformation of the different areas (from the energy sector to the public administration reformation). Also, the participants of the Lab focused on the Minsk process, on the counter to the Russian propaganda, as well as on the development of possible scenarios in Donbas during the discussion on the second panel. The participants especially emphasised on the so-called red lines of the confict settlement.

As the discussion has demonstrated, the EU representatives are more positive about the Ukraine’s achievements in the reformation than Ukrainian experts are. However, Brussels awaits concrete results of the judicial and administrative reformation in 2017.
