It has been 7 years since the beginning of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine. The legislation and state policy in the country have evolved markedly over this time. While both the Ukrainian authorities and international partners of Ukraine have accumulated a great deal of experience in resolution and conflict mitigation.
There was an online presentation of the analytical report “Overview of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine – a context and conflict analysis” held on April 9th and 12th.
The report was prepared by experts of the Center for Security Studies #CENSS, Vadym Chernysh and Viktoriia Voronina within the framework of the “Local Self-Government and the Rule of Law in Ukraine” project, which is implemented by the Folke Bernadotte Academy.
For the first time the report reads analysed and systematized information on:
- current state of the conflict, as well as compiled general conflict profile;
- context of some manifestations and implications of the conflict as well as outlook for its resolution and possibilities of relief and mitigation;
- mechanisms, formats and results of international cooperation in conflict resolution and mitigation.
