The triggers of growth of the transition period are close to exhausting their potential. No clear alternative sets of policies leading to higher sustainable economic and social progress have been prepared. This project will formulate such policies in four areas: consolidation of public finances; education, measurement quality and (labor market) results; high unemployment; and enhancing integration chances of Ukraine. Workshops; best practices analyses and policy papers are to reach these goals.

Partners:

Institute for Economic and Social Reforms (SK)
