The presentation on 5 November 2014 will be by:
"How Does the EU Help Ukraine?"
Abstract: The European Union has been assisting Ukraine in many ways. During my presentation I will focus on most important initiatives and ways, through which the EU helps Ukraine to become a modern European democratic state. The focus will not be only on financial programs, but also on other forms of assitance like technical and experts´advice. It can be argued that many of these EU initiatives still remain outside of the interest of the public.
