LET’S IMPROVE THE GOVERNANCE
Why do we need good governance? For people to be less nervous, smile more and sleep better. For shorter queues, for neighbours being polite in their chats, for working hospitals, for drivers being nice to pedestrians and pedestrians to scooter drivers. Under good governance people do not notice their trips, queues, parking lots, planned renovations, and calmly let other people just ask.

Ukraine does not need a new chief. Ukraine needs good governance. In other words, institutions ensuring that good decisions are made systemically in the best interest of the Ukrainians.

A healthy state is an operator of social interest. A failed state is an operator of interests of certain castes.
Solutions should be based on high quality data and rigorous analysis, not rumours or emotions. Good quality governance can lead the country onto a new level of development, while the usual bad one will constantly push it towards poverty and dependence.
Dragon Capital, co-chair of KSE Board of Directors, member of Supervisory Boards of VoxUkraine and Centre for Economic Strategy
Good governance is necessary so that Ukrainians don’t die early. Since the start of the pandemic, Covid-19 has taken over 50 thousand lives. Part of them was lost because of low governance quality.

What will we do?
Create demand for quality change. Develop a discussion on governance in Ukraine via publications, monitoring of reforms, public discussions and conferences.
Catalogue policy mistakes. Each MP, interested public servants and mayors will receive a handbook with the analysis of major mistakes and success stories of governance in Ukraine over the last 30 years.
Write and distribute the ‘Citizen guidebook’ – a collection of simple and practical recommendations on how each of us can impact government decisions at the central or local level.
