High-Level Policy Dialogue on Donbas' Future (Fourth Meeting)

Dates:
  • Thu 10 Dec 2020 13.30 - 16.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-12-10 13:30 2020-12-10 16:00 Europe/Paris High-Level Policy Dialogue on Donbas' Future (Fourth Meeting)

The presidential and parliamentary elections of April and July 2019 have led to a significant shift in Ukraine’s political environment and policies, including with respect to the handling of the specific conflict in the Donbas region of Ukraine . However, one and a half year later, after several attempts at achieving a quantum leap in the international negotiating process, the prospect of faster convergence towards a settlement of the conflict, which would have paved the way for re-building the economy of the whole region, is fading away. 

This new reality, which is also shaped up by the coronavirus pandemic, the recent global political changes, and the outcome of the latest economic study of the region, informs the way Donbas’ economic redevelopment is approached. These considerations have guided the definition of the agenda of the Fourth Meeting of the High-Level Policy Dialogue (HLPD), organised by the School of Transnational Governance of the European University Institute.

With representatives and experts from the UN, the EIB, the World Bank, the EU, and the Atlantic Council, as well as high-level Ukrainian decision-makers and policy influencers present, this Fourth Meeting of the High-Level Policy Dialogue will discuss a new approach to the economic development of the Donetsk and Luhansk administrative regions of Ukraine. At a time, when the lines and the distribution of roles between the public, private and non-government sectors have become increasingly blurred, the meeting will critically deepen the reflection on the economic development in the region and propose, where possible, solutions to achieving the newly set development objectives.

This event can be attended on an invitation-only basis. All deliberations will take place under the Chatham House Rule (no views or positions may be attributed publicly to any participants), and, following the recommendations that come out of the discussion, the organisers will publish a policy brief as part of their public mission.
