Since 1993, Internews has been working in Ukraine with journalists, public officials, activists and citizens to provide targeted technical assistance and training to local partners who promote the public service role of responsible media, increase the quality and quantity of investigative reporting, help traditional media increase online offerings, provide legal support to journalists and media outlets, and reform media legislation to meet improved standards.

Kateryna Miasnykova, the executive director of the Independent Association of Broadcasters (a local partner of Internews and a NED grantee) will provide an update on the reform process in the media sector, the pre-election environment in the country, the increased regulation of content under the pretext of national security matters, as well as the situation with media in the regions.

Jeanne Bourgault, the President and CEO of Internews, will make remarks on the Internews’ work in Ukraine since 1992 and describe how it evolved over the past twenty five years. 

Vitaliy Shpak, Program Officer at National Endowment for Democracy, will moderate the discussion.
