“The Rule of Law in Ukraine”
Dmytro Vovk, Associate Professor and Director of the Center of Rule of Law and Religion Studies at Yaroslav Mudryi National Law University in Kharkiv, Ukraine
This talk provides an overview of how the rule of law requirements have been implemented in Ukraine's legal system. Ukraine has been relatively successful in establishing and maintaining democratic institutions (competing political systems, independent media, freedom of speech, association and religion), but much less successful in establishing the rule of law in the narrow sense (independent judiciary, effective law enforcement system, fight against corruption, accountable government, oligarchic economy etc.). This has ramifications for the war and other challenges the country faces at this time.
Dmytro Vovk is an expert on constitutional law, rule of law and religious freedom. He is the author of numerous academic articles and op-eds on rule of law and legal reform, involving civil liberties and human rights, in post-socialist societies.
