Civil society in Ukraine continues to drive the country’s Euro-Atlantic trajectory from the ground up. Dynamic leaders and organizations are dismantling the old Soviet-era institutions and replacing them with modern, uniquely Ukrainian entities. Government bodies also play a significant role in reshaping independent Ukraine. The Ukrainian Culture Fund, state broadcasting company Suspline, state-owned energy company Naftogaz, and others have evolved into more effective catalysts for change in Kyiv and beyond.

Since 2019, what substantive changes has civil society produced in Ukraine? How can Ukrainian NGOs and reform-minded government institutions work together to create a stronger, more democratically vibrant country?

Yevhen Hlibovytsky, partner at Ukrainian consulting firm Pro Mova, joins Melinda Haring, deputy director of the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center, for a discussion on the evolution of Ukrainian civil society.
