As the world watches events develop after more than 100 days of conflict in Ukraine and Russia’s failed attempts at a quick victory, the international community is focusing its efforts on supporting resilience on Ukraine’s home front and designing a massive post-war recovery programme.
Ukraine has already secured an unprecedented commitment from the EU, the US and G7 countries, as well as from international financial institutions, for significant financial support to assist with rapid economic reconstruction. The European Investment Bank will play a central role in securing financial assistance for Ukraine and estimates the country needs as much as 1 trillion euros.
Alongside infrastructure and social service rebuilding, Ukraine needs to modernize politically. Its EU candidate status requires accountable governance and Ukrainian citizens are demanding a competitive and transparent recovery programme. Post-war Ukraine could excel in institutional transformation where the influence of vested interests is limited and prosperity is shared by many.
A panel of experts investigates key questions including:
What are existing approaches by Ukraine and key international donors to set up a new recovery facility?
What is key to getting recovery right?
How can Ukraine navigate challenges including raging war, high risks for FDI and global economic recession?
Can Ukraine ensure the return of its refugees from European nations as part of the reconstruction process?
For further information, please refer to Chatham House’s work on reconstruction in Ukraine in partnership with the US Anti-Corruption Research Centre: Accountability in Reconstruction: International Experience and the case of Ukraine.
This event is part of Chatham House’s ongoing work on The Future of Conflict.
As with all Chatham House member events, questions from members drive the conversation.
