Since 2014, Ukraine has been showing an impressive effort in coping with multiple domestic and external challenges. Kyiv has chosen the European path of strengthening democratic institutions, the market economy and the rule of law. Concrete steps have been taken in key reform sectors such
as energy, administration, judiciary and anti-corruption. Western support for the country has also been unparalleled but not unconditional. Still, Ukraine faces obstacles that need to be tackled – be it corruption, the further implementation of democratic and economic reforms or the (current) security challenges.
Together with our highly distinguished speakers we will debate how far Ukraine has come with its reform ambitions. Is the reform legislation voted by the Rada taking root and are the already implemented reforms irreversible? The event will also commemorate the 5th anniversary of the
Revolution of Dignity in Majdan, as well as the successful wrap-up of #UkraineReform, a programme initiated by the Martens Centre in 2014 to encourage and support the reform process of the country.
