Overview

Since 2014 Ukraine has been facing challenges unprecedented in recent history, as it tries to transform its ineffective state while constantly under the pressure of Russian military aggression. Success in unlocking economic potential depends upon securing boarders, eliminating corruption and establishing a rule of law. The government in Kyiv has undertaken a series of reforms in attempt to open the country to the West, increase transparency and stabilize the economy. But much remains to be done.

With coverage of Ukraine largely absent from the Western media, this Chatham House conference will provide a high-level ‘warts and all’ discussion about Ukraine’s successes and its failures. Does Ukraine matter for European security? If so, how? What are the domestic political impediments to change? How can economic growth be kick-started?

This Chatham House conference will take place the day before a joint UK-Ukraine hosted intergovernmental Ukraine reform conference on 6 July, which will bring together Ukraine’s international partners to launch its Reform Action Plan 2017-20 in front of the international community.
