Briefing Paper 77: Freedom of Peaceful Assembly in Ukraine

Freedom of assembly plays a special role in Ukraine. Since independence, the country has seen massive demonstrations and violent suppression by authorities. The Euromaidan protests, which represent the tragic culmination of this recent history, brought a breakthrough in a citizen’s right to assemble freely.

DRI’s briefing paper written jointly with the experts from the Centre of Policy and Legal Reforms (CPLR) in Kyiv looks at the long-lasting gap in terms of a clear legal framework for the conduct of peaceful assemblies in Ukraine, respective court decisions and recent attempts to clarify the constitutional guarantees to assemble freely.
