On February 6th another event by BHCF took part. This time we have focused our attention on the public control over local authorities. Topics that were discussed as well as questions that were posed and answered are of a high importance today. Especially, in times of Ukraine’s transformation.
The school was a unique case in our practice. This time almost all speakers were invited from the participants of the “Young Generation will Change Ukraine” Program. These were: Natalia Vatamaniuk and Vadym Miskyi, who researched Norway in 2014 and know work as experts for the Reanimation Package of Reforms; Artem Romaniukov, who studied Poland in 2015 (civil activist and member of Democratic Alliance Party in Dnipropetrovsk). We have also invited an old friend of the Foundation and brilliant expert in project management and election campaigns – Maksym Koliesnykov (expert of Friedrich Naumann Foundation in Ukraine and leader of the Network for free local politicians).
Despite being young all the speakers have great experience both in professional field (mainly, civil society). The school had both theoretical part and modeling/cases solving. Such important questions as: tool for control over local authorities; how effectively cooperate with local authorities; advocacy of local reforms; civil movement in regions; open inventory catalogues (data on all available resources, tenders and state operations etc.) and some other.
Based on the School Roman Povzyk, who studies Poland in 2015, has prepared detailed notes on lectures. The last one will be soon available on this website.
The SCHOOL FOR PUBLIC CONTROL OVER LOCAL AUTHORITIES was hosted by Business School MIM-Kyiv.
More than 30 young civil activists took part in it.
