Since 2015, International IDEA has initiated multiple projects in Ukraine that aim to support democratic consolidation. To fill a knowledge gap, it provided translations of some of its more well-known publications into Ukrainian and Russian, including on money in politics and design of electoral management bodies. At an early stage of constitution-reform process, the Institute shared knowledge with national civic groups on how to increase public engagement in the constitution-building process, and more recently, hosted discussions with national experts how to structure powers and relations between the three branches of government to enable effective functioning of semi-presidential governments.
International IDEA also gives technical advice for combating political corruption. The Wider Europe Programme is conducting a range of assessments of the state of local democracy in Ukraine. This especially focuses on mid-sized cities, where past conflicts between mayors and city councils have hampered effective functioning of democracy at the local level.
