Ukraine’s Corruption Battle: Is the Justice System Fit for Purpose?
Ukrainians identify corruption as one of the main problems facing the country. Despite the creation of new anti-corruption institutions, the reform effort has lost momentum since 2015. Ukraine climbed only one point in Transparency International’s 2017 Corruption Perceptions Index. A lack of political will and the low level of trust in Ukrainian courts impede the fight against corruption.
The event will address the key issues in establishing rule of law in Ukraine. Mr Lutsenko will assess the prospects for a new anti-corruption court, the interaction between the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU), the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office and the new State Bureau of Investigation. Mr Lutsenko will also provide an update on the asset recovery cases of former President Yanukovych and his inner circle.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
