The reform of political parties legislation and regulation can act as a platform from which to consider a wide array of crucial issues in the development of a stable and lasting democratic party system. These include, inter alia, political party financing, internal party democracy, the participation of women, registration and monitoring of political parties.
In partnership with the OSCE`s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) and with the financial support of the European Union, Denys Kovryzhenko and his colleagues at the Agency for Legislative Initiatives (ALI), led an in-depth consultative process with key stakeholders in Ukraine on the issue of political party legislation reform, raising problems and proposing possible solutions.
The result is Regulation of Political Parties in Ukraine: the Current State and Direction of Reforms, a comprehensive report which thoroughly analyses the particular problems and issues in Ukraine’s legislative and regulatory framework for political parties. Looking forward, and based on the results of the consultations, the report proposes an agenda for reform based on international European standard and best practice.
This document has been produced with the financial assistance of the European Union, within the framework of a joint project of the European Union and the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR).
