Launched in 2015, Carnegie’s Reforming Ukraine project is an international multidisciplinary effort to monitor and evaluate Ukraine’s progress in key areas such as the security sector, the economy, the judiciary, and the reform of political institutions. The project’s flagship publication, the Ukraine Reform Monitor, brings together Ukraine-based policy practitioners and analysts and experienced Carnegie fellows to provide rigorous assessments of the Ukrainian reform effort via a series of regular policy-focused publications, workshops, and events in Ukraine and key Western capitals.
At a time when the geopolitical and security aspects of the Ukraine crisis dominate much of the Western discourse, this project focuses on the long-term challenges facing the country and provides practical tools for measuring the depth and speed of change. The project aims to promote a constructive dialogue between Ukraine and its Western partners that informs policymakers by increasing the quality and quantity of available analytical resources on Ukraine during this critical phase in the country’s transition. It is also intended to stimulate creative thinking among Western policymakers about alternative approaches to supporting Ukrainian reform.
The project is carried out by Carnegie’s Washington-based Russia and Eurasia Program and Carnegie Europe, together with a team of independent contributors based in Ukraine, with support from the Open Society Foundations and the Center for East European and International Studies.
