Briefing Paper 51: Ukraine’s Political Reforms: One Year on from Euromaidan

Ukrainian reformers and Ukraine’s European partners, such as the Council of Europe’s Venice Commission, have demanded for a long time that significant, widespread political reforms be adopted to break a corrupt and largely inefficient political economy. The Venice Commission alone has published 73 detailed opinions on Ukraine since 1995. The Euromaidan revolution and its aftermath have opened a new window of opportunity to mark this break from the past.

In this briefing paper, DRI and Institute of International Relations of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv take stock of the reform laws adopted so far and chart a course forward for priority political reforms to be achieved in the coming months.
