Since 1994, the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) has played a key role in the emergence and modernization of democratic electoral processes and institutions in Ukraine. During this period, IFES has developed a reputation as a reliable source for impartial analysis and high-quality technical assistance in the fields of electoral and political finance reform, social inclusion and gender equality, election administration, civil society capacity building, civic education, and public opinion research.
Key directions of IFES programming in Ukraine include: defending Ukraine from cybersecurity vulnerabilities and threats in and around the electoral process; training electoral management bodies based on international standards and good practice; supporting civil society, academia and strengthening civic engagement; fostering dialogue on electoral and political finance reform; enhancing inclusion in the electoral process for underrepresented populations; strengthening key electoral and politically-exposed institutions.
IFES’ efforts have resulted in the continued enhancement of electoral administration, consensus-based electoral law reform discussions and implementation, improved cooperation on political finance oversight between government and civil society, the strengthening of Ukraine’s cybersecurity resilience, increased capacity of key civil society actors to act as partners and monitors, as well as the growth of engaged and informed civic and voter participation across the country.
Inclusion and gender equality are mainstreamed throughout IFES’ programming to promote structural reforms that will benefit all citizens of Ukraine. In addition to policy analysis, capacity building, and work with electoral management, IFES partners with Ukrainian civil society organizations to develop and promote measures that address women’s underrepresentation in Ukrainian politics and inclusion of minority populations in the electoral and political process.
IFES is a leader in the field of public opinion research in Ukraine. Since 1994, IFES has conducted 29 nationwide public opinion surveys in the country, examining socio-political issues, and attitudes toward elections and democracy, among other topics. Data from these surveys have enabled IFES to focus its technical assistance and provide valuable and up-to-date information and analysis.
