Ukraine Forum

The Ukraine Forum is a unique platform providing insight on internal Ukrainian dynamics in key policy areas.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine makes the country more vulnerable than at any time in recent memory but prior to the invasion, it was already at a critical juncture with a challenging internal reform agenda and a deteriorating economic and social situation.

Complex and fluid internal dynamics are in motion as a result of the ongoing struggle between the system of old rules and vested interests on the one hand, and a strong demand and pressure from society and a new generation of policymakers for new rules on the other.

The forum brings together a dynamic group of stakeholders, including politicians, practitioners, civil society leaders, academics and journalists to examine the political situation in Ukraine.

It is managed by Orysia Lutsevych and governed by a steering committee of eminent academics, journalists and funders, chaired by Simon Smith, the UK’s ambassador to Ukraine from 2012-15.
