The implementation of good governance principles and norms (especially in the public domain) has been a focal point for Ukrainian society and its leadership for many years.

Despite many successful endeavors in this area, good governance remains fragile, and this significantly contributes to lowering the level of trust in public institutions, thus posing serious obstacles to the further modernization of Ukrainian society.

This program is intended to support the exchange of ideas and experiences between Ukrainian leaders, domestic and foreign experts on anti-corruption strategies, development, and implementation of regulatory norms, and the search for solutions to common problems.

In 2018, Aspen Institute Kyiv conducted an open Good Governance Forum, which became the first event of the program area. In 2019, the Aspen Institute Kyiv began a new phase in the development of a program area that includes the Forum of Good Governance, the creation of Digital Threats to Democracy working group, and the dialogue with key stakeholders on decentralization reform, which will have proposals for public policy.

The Good Governance Program provides two seminars (September 2019 and May 2020) devoted to the methodology of dialogue with stakeholders, as well as four two-day dialogue sessions (from October 2019 to March 2020) with key stakeholders in the decentralization reform. The exact schedule of the Program activities will be provided to selected participants.

Representatives of the key stakeholders of the decentralization reform are invited to participate including Parliament, Government, Local state administrations, Local governments, Scientific and expert environment, Business associations, Civil society organizations, international organizations, and projects. In 2019, 26 participants will be selected. More details >> 

Good Governance Program is supported by a grant from Luminate and NED.
