The recent violent protests in Kyiv, which took place during parliamentary debates about constitutional changes and autonomy for eastern Ukraine, underscore the country’s daunting domestic challenges. Please join the Harriman Institute and the Ukrainian Studies Program for a discussion with Balazs Jarabik and Andrew Weiss about the Ukraine Reform Monitor, a new initiative by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The conversation will focus on the progress of domestic reforms in Ukraine, the key challenges facing the Poroshenko government, and the situation in eastern Ukraine.

Balazs Jarabik is a visiting scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and co-manager of the Ukraine Reform Monitor. He currently serves as a project director for Pact, Inc., based in Vilnius, Lithuania. 

Andrew S. Weiss is vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, where he oversees research in Washington and Moscow on Russia and Eurasia.
