HOW CIVIL SOCIETY IS REFORMING UKRAINE AND WHAT THE WEST CAN DO
On Monday, October 30, Raam op Rusland organises its seventh October Lecture, in cooperation with De Rode Hoed. Just like last year the lecture will be given by a Ukrainian guest: Daria Kaleniuk from the Anti-Corruption Action Center (AntAC) in Kyiv.
In her lecture, Kaleniuk will discuss the role of civil society in wartime. For a year and a half, Ukraine has vigorously defended itself against Russia, which aims to destroy the Ukrainian state and culture. The Ukrainian armed forces are making steady progress, but a military victory does not seem to be in sight yet. Civil society plays an important role in defending the country against Russian aggression. At the same time, numerous civil society organizations continue to push for much-needed reforms within Ukraine. War and reform go hand in hand. The reconstruction of Ukraine cannot be postponed until after the war.
In her October Lecture, Daria Kaleniuk, one of the driving forces behind Ukrainian civil society in the last decade, will not only speak about civil activism in wartime, but also appeal to the West to take more initiative.
After the lecture there will be a public discussion and an opportunity to ask questions.
