Combating Corruption and Strengthening Rule of Law in Ukraine

To increase transparency, improve accountability, and prevent corruption in Ukraine, the Combating Corruption and Strengthening Rule of Law project promoted innovative judicial reforms and supported the Ukrainian government in their implementation.
To support USAID’s worldwide commitment to justice and good governance, Chemonics worked with the Ukrainian government to improve the country’s judicial structure through the Combating Corruption and Strengthening Rule of Law project. The project worked with the judiciary, civil society, and Parliament to design and implement measures that reduce opportunities for corruption and improve the skills of justice sector professionals.

 

The project improved the legal framework and bolstered the transparency and efficiency of judicial operations in Ukraine. Activities in court monitoring, citizen report card surveys, public awareness, and court performance evaluation strengthened points of interaction between the courts and their communities to improve public awareness of judicial policies and procedures throughout the judicial process. 20 courts in Ukraine have used these tools to impress upon court staff that courts are public service institutions whose effectiveness depends partly on their success in securing public trust and confidence.
 
Project Results
  • Helped pass a revised Law on the Judiciary and Status of Judges to provide a legal basis for objective judicial selection
  • Facilitated development of Ukraine’s first court staff code of conduct, applicable to all of Ukraine’s 35,000 court staff
  • Provided practical continuing education to more than 1,700 judges and 1,200 justice-sector personnel on judicial topics

Project Duration: 2006 - 2011
