The Reanimation Package of Reforms with the assistance of the Centre for Democracy and the Rule of Law and the Prague Civil Society Centre are organizing a week-long study trip to Ukraine, between the 23rd and 29th of April 2017, for the representatives of five post-Soviet countries, including Azerbaijan, Belarus, and Armenia.
Activists, opinion-makers, experts and representatives of independent media from Eastern Europe, South Caucasus and Central Asia to visit Ukraine to learn first-hand how a broad alliance of civil society, MPs and experts are driving reforms inside the country. Participants of the program will meet lead civil society representatives and experts working on development and implementation of Ukraine’s post-Euromaidan reforms, analyse recent progress and discuss the future path of the reform process.
Participants will also be able to develop relationships with fellow democracy activists from different countries and engage in critical reflection, dialogue, experience-sharing and knowledge dissemination, with the aim to stimulate fact-based, collaborative and strategic thinking on solutions for the future of the region.
The costs of the trip, including flights to Kyiv, accommodation and meal allowances will be covered by the organisers.
The seminar will take place in Russian – fluency in Russian is therefore necessary. English language skills would be an advantage but are not a precondition for selection or participation.
The deadline for completed applications is Monday 20 February 2017.
