On March, 21 2016 Foreign Council Policy “Ukrainian Prism” in partnership with Friedrich Ebert Foundation on Ukraine and some independent experts will  present a study “Ukrainian Prism: Foreign Policy 2015”.

The analysts have studied more than 30 directions of foreign policy: from cooperation with key partners and international organizations to public diplomacy. For the assessment of the foreign policy of Ukraine 5 criteria were applied, namely strategic vision, political interest/engagement, institutional cooperation, activities and results.  The successes, as well as failures of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Committee on Foreign Affairs of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and other institutions were assessed. The scores were given for their work, based on foreign policy merits and reverses.

Using the system of objectively measured indicators, we have identifed not only success stories, but also the directions and certain aspects of foreign policy activities that need more attention, some corrections, and sometimes even radical change of approaches.
