ICPS economists believe that the European Union and especially its newest member countries provide Ukraine with an excellent model of successful transformation. For this reason, ICPS has long supported and promoted European integration for Ukraine and has been working to move the country in this direction.
Ukraine has very clear objectives in terms of carrying out reforms in line with its commitments under the Association Agreement, including the Free Trade Area with the EU. The essence and scale of these objectives represent a major challenge for the country, but success in fulfilling them will make Ukraine a far more democratic and progressive country.
ICPS has applied its knowledge and experience in reforms to provide stakeholders with information and instruments that will make reform possible, allow for the progress of reforms to be properly monitored, and project Ukraine’s Eurointegration prospects.
One of the cross-cutting reform themes in Ukraine is the quality of how policy is written and how it is carried out. The reason for this is the absence of a workable, effective mechanism for consultations with voters and interest groups during the policy drafting process.
ICPS has been working to change democratic governance in Ukraine, applying universal methods that can be extended to other spheres as well. Our business concept includes six such key areas of activity: problem analysis, engaging stakeholders, public consultations, legislative and institutional audits, oversight and monitoring, and training and capacity-building.
Since its inception, ICPS has been actively engaged in developing and instituting studies in the power sector in Ukraine. Together, ICPS management, analysts and associated experts represent a high level of professionalism in this area that allows us to draft fundamental propositions regarding electricity policy and the country’s Electricity Strategy.
Our goal in the power sector is to put together a public proposal that includes the new principles of Ukraine’s Electricity Policy, to draft a strategy, and to develop the mechanisms for implementing it.
ICPS was the first think-tank in Ukraine that began to offer regular forecasts for the development of the country’s economy. Today, ICPS analysts understand that there is a need for further medium-term forecasts for Ukraine’s economy based on in-depth analytical experience and current statistical models and approaches to policy analysis and projection.
Our goal in this sphere is to provide quantitative and qualitative predictions of changes in Ukraine’s economy as a whole and in its various sectors, to provide opportunities for open lobbying of needed reforms, and to offer timely warnings about emerging risks and obstacles to growth.
ICPS supports individuals who are currently engaged in reforms or plan to be so engaged in the future. We are in process of systematizing our experience in a form that will be possible to transfer to others, and propose the entire range of critically necessary skills to civil servants, NGOs, company managers, and community activists.
