High-Level Corruption Fight. Where are we and where do we go?
- America House (map)
According to Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index 2017, Ukraine ranked 130 out of 180.
The High Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine, the Independent Investigative Body and the Independent Prosecutorial Body are the three institutions that have been created to combat high-level corruption in Ukraine.
What has been done so far, what are the outcomes, and what still needs to be done? How do the three institutions coordinate their work to achieve the shared mission? What can civil society do to join them in fighting high-level corruption?
We’ve decided to invite representatives from each of these institutions as well as the independent media to discuss these questions and other work they do in their areas.
The opening remarks will be delivered by Eka Tkeshelashvili, Head of Programme, European Union Anti-Corruption Initiative.
Participants of the panel:
Andriy Kalyzhynskyi, Head of Detective’s Unit, NABU
Volodymyr Kryvenko, SAPO Deputy Director
Levan Duchidze, Country Director in Ukraine, IDLO
Denys Bihus, journalist, founder of Bihus.info
The panel will be moderated by Matthew A. Thoresen, the Senior Criminal Justice Advisor for the U.S. Embassy's International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Section.
The event will be in English and Ukrainian with simultaneous translation.
Prior to the panel, visitors will have a chance to see the exhibit “Ukraine without Corruption”, a continuation of the dialogue that began with the Corruption Park - an interactive project created with the support of the European Union Anti-Corruption Initiative (EUACI), financed by EU and co-financed and implemented by DANIDA.
Through a joint effort between America House and the EUACI, the project now continues at America House Kyiv, this time with the addition of youth voices. The exhibit includes digital stories of personal experiences overcoming corruption created by alumni of the U.S. Department of State’s FLEX Program.
The exhibition in America House displays major corruption schemes, as well as methods and approaches being used today around the world to fight corruption. It explains not only how corruption works, but also what is being done nationally and internationally to combat it. The exhibition features those who are fighting corruption in Ukraine today and offers practical tips for everyone to take a stand against corruption.

“Не люди створюють подорожі, а подорожі створюють людей”, — писав улюблений письменник всіх американців та подорожувальників Джон Стайнбек.

Книжки Стейнбека навчили її слухати та помічати інсайти, а Америка стала для неї країною відкриттів, які вона відтворила у скетчах.
