Direction "Rule of Law"

The rule of law in the state provides clear rules of the game and allows citizens to live in an independent democratic country. The government must work in a qualitative and effective manner, enforce laws and ensure independent and impartial justice so that such rules are established and operate in the state. The rule of law is about the quality of life of citizens, the economy and the investment attractiveness of the country. 

BY CHANNELING OUR EFFORTS INTO THE DEVELOPMENT OF RULE OF LAW IN UKRAINE, WE ARE WORKING IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS:

  • Elections. To establish democratic institutions, it is important to support the implementation of electoral reform, improvement of electoral legislation, exercise of citizens’ right to make informed choices, and the right to be elected through transparent and clear democratic processes.
  • CHESNO Civil Movement. As co-initiators of CHESNO Civil Movement, we have been working with Centre UA since 2011 to improve the quality of Ukrainian politics.
  • Filter the Judiciary! It is a public control campaign in which we focus our efforts on promoting fair justice by upgrading and clearing the judiciary and creating a unique online database of judges’ profiles.
  • Access to information. CEDEM experts, being co-authors of the law on access to public information, pay particular attention to the implementation of the law through the training for civil servants and citizens, develop a community of activists in this field and develop successful case law.

Within this area, CEDEM experts prepare analytical and information products, develop projects to address problematic aspects of the field, conduct information and advocacy campaigns.
