| Kyiv Dialogue

Dear Sir or Madam,

with the Maidan revolution in 2014, the Ukrainian society has set a clear sign against corruption and increasing authoritarianism in the country. Today comprehensive reforms in the administrative and executive areas are necessary to eliminate the preconditions for corruption and to establish transparency and the rule of law. What progress has been made since 2014? Which hurdles and challenges has the new Ukrainian government encountered and, more importantly, how can they be overcome? How can the EU better support Ukraine in fighting corruption and establishing transparency and accountability of governmental work towards the society? What are the expectations of civil society towards international actors and networks?
