Analytical centers will help the authorities rebuild Ukraine after the war and prepare for EU accession.
Transparency International Ukraine, with the support of the EU, has teamed up with other CSOs to work with state authorities in policy development and communication to overcome the effects of the war and bring Ukraine closer to EU membership.
“Civil society has always been a reliable partner of the government on the European integration path. Working together, we achieve great results. After Ukraine applied for EU membership, we worked as one incredibly powerful team, whether it was filling out a questionnaire from the EU or advocating in EU member states. Granting the candidate status launched the process of Ukraine’s accession to the EU, which will require significant expertise and internal mobilisation. Thanks to EU funding a new stage of our joint work has begun – the government and the civil society – for the sake of the European future of Ukraine”, Olha Stefanishyna, Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine, commented about the importance of the project.
“Recognising a key role of Ukrainian civil society in Ukraine’s recovery and promoting its European integration process, the EU is pleased to support a cross-sectoral project designed by a consortium of Ukrainian think tanks to help the Parliament and the Government to address current challenges in several policy areas. The project covers regional governance, elections, support to internally displaced people, analysis of compliance of Ukrainian legislation with EU acquis, economic policy, public procurement, anti-corruption, judicial and prosecutorial reforms, communication on European Integration policy”, Matti Maasikas, Ambassador of the EU to Ukraine, said on the occasion of the project start.
The new Project “Civil Society for Ukraine’s Post-war Recovery and EU-Readiness” aims at increasing policy capacity of the Cabinet of Ministers and the Verkhovna Rada in the process of overcoming the consequences of the war and on the way to Ukraine’s membership in the EU by providing expert and communication support from civil society organisations in the course of designing and implementing relevant laws and policies.
The Project will promote a systematic approach to policymaking based on a thorough problem analysis, economic impact assessment and positions of stakeholders. It will also help to improve quality of baseline data and analytical documents, including EU law compliance analysis and legislative impact assessment at both the Government and Parliament levels.
In particular, the project will provide expertise the following areas:
- reintegration of refugees and IDPs;
- restoration of the legitimate governance in the liberated territories;
- overcoming the war, post-war and other barriers to accessing justice;
- improving public procurement policies and anti-corruption infrastructure;
- designing economic reforms in line with war and post-war challenges.
