Transparency International Ukraine has completed its third study of transparency of 100 largest Ukrainian cities as part of the Transparent Cities program

For the past two months, the team of the “Transparent Cities” project has been verifying the websites of 100 city councils, analyzing their responses to public requests and compiling the long-awaited ranking. And now we are ready to share its results with you.

  • Who will top the ranking this year?
  • Will last year’s outsiders turn out to have made a big leap?
  • Who made the most progress in 2019?
  • Are local authorities changing in Ukraine?
  • What obstacles do city councils encounter on their way to transparency?

You will find out everything at our event. Everyone interested will also be able to join discussion panels and talk to representatives of local authorities and international organizations.

  • Andrii Borovyk, Executive Director of Transparency International Ukraine;
