Integrity and Inclusiveness of the Democratic Process in Ukraine

From November 2018 to January 2019, UNDP Ukraine undertook a research initiative on the integrity and inclusiveness of the democratic process in all 24 regions of Ukraine. The research was conducted within its overall democratic governance programme by a team of 24 regional analysts, with a core analysis team based in Kyiv.

The analysts gathered contextual information and data on how state institutions, political parties, media, businesses and civil society interrelate and affect the integrity and inclusiveness of democratic processes in the regions.

They conducted interviews with representatives of local government bodies, political parties, businesses, media, civil society organizations and vulnerable groups and reviewed all relevant, publicly available sources. The present report is a synthesis of the interim findings from this research, and it includes an agenda for the deeper and further analysis to be conducted later in 2019 and 2020.
