Corruption and Conflict in Ukraine: Could Civilian Oversight be a Remedy?
Katherine Dixon, Director, Defence and Security, Transparency International
Olena Tregub, Member, Independent Defence Anti-Corruption Committee; Head, International Development Assistance Coordination, Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, Ukraine (2015-17)
The destabilizing impact of corruption has been felt keenly in Ukraine in recent years. Corruption has stymied reform efforts, undermined military effectiveness in the conflict zone, and eroded public trust in state institutions. This event will analyze new efforts to strengthen external oversight and the accountability of the Ukrainian defence sector. The speakers will present recent research on corruption in the supply of medical provisions to the military and in security assistance. They will also present preliminary findings on illegal trade in Eastern Ukraine and on the reform of the state-owned defence enterprise Ukroboronprom.
This event is being organized in partnership with Transparency International.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
