Reforming judiciary in focus of Ukraine’s first high-level non-oligarchic international conference.

On 7 and 8 June, the Democracy in Action Conference, organized by the Anti-Corruption Action Center (a leading Ukrainian NGO fighting corruption), was held in Kyiv. It was the first such high-level international conference organized by civil society rather than oligarchs. One of the major topics under discussion was how to fight corruption within the judiciary.

The president of Ukraine, the president of the Venice Commission, other international diplomats, and representatives of Ukrainian civil society agreed that reforming judicial governance was the key issue. Meanwhile, a draft law on judicial reform is being prepared for the second reading in parliament. However, its provisions contradict the intention of real reform.
