In the six years since the Revolution of Dignity, Ukraine has not answered its most important questions: how will the country ensure democratic values and finally deliver justice? Much of Ukraine’s hope lies in its young leaders who may be the ones to drive the country forward.
The 2019-2020 Ukrainian Emerging Leaders in residence at Stanford University Kateryna Bondar, Artem Romaniukov, and Pavel Vrzheshch outline their objectives for strengthening public administration, civil society, and economic reforms in Ukraine. Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law Mosbacher Director Francis Fukuyama will deliver a keynote address. Diane Francis, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center and editor at large with the National Post in Canada, will moderate the discussion.
Ukraine has moved tentatively toward an open society and market economy since independence. The country has held several democratic elections but largely failed to address state control and corruption in its economy. Since the 2014 Maidan Revolution, Ukraine has undertaken significant economic reform and moved decisively toward a Europe-focused foreign policy.
