Reference: “Ukraine: The Way of Reforms” is a project within which a group of experts develops training cases based on examples of transformations that have taken place in Ukraine in recent years that will be collected in the “Reforms Book”. Changes are observed in almost all areas – the public sector, business and public administration. The process of reforming certain areas is so innovative for Ukraine, which requires separate study and analysis. Understanding the strategy of change and having successful examples, society becomes more active in the reform processes. The “Reforms Book” will be a collection of 12 case studies.
