Moderator: Jeff Goldstein, Senior Policy Analyst for Eurasia (Open Society Foundations)
Light refreshments will be served  
 

Following Ukraine’s downgrade from “Free” to “Partly Free” in its annual Freedom in the World report, Freedom House, with support from the Open Society Foundations, conducted an on-ground assessment mission of the current state of democracy and human rights in the country.  At this event, the authors of the report -- David Kramer (Executive Director, Freedom House), Damon Wilson (Vice President, Atlantic Council) and Robert Nurick (non-resident senior fellow, Atlantic Council) – will outline Ukraine’s current socio-political atmosphere, explain their conclusions regarding Ukraine’s current trajectory, and state concrete steps that both Ukraine and the international community need to take to prevent further democratic backsliding and to promote democratic values in Ukraine.  
 

Please RSVP by following the link below. Reservations will be accepted until Monday, April 25 at 10:00am.
