DEJURE Foundation fights for ethics and integrity within the judiciary

“We strongly believe that democracy is not possible without justice – which can only be achieved, in Ukraine in particular, through structural reforms. Without achieving justice, it is impossible to have a good sustainable European democracy; which Ukraine tries to be.” 
In November 2016, the Ukrainian Parliament passed a new law on the judiciary and the status of judges, establishing a Public Integrity Council (PIC) to support the High Qualifications Commission of Judges (HQC) in determining the professional ethics and integrity of candidates for the judgeship.

Domestic violence through COVID-19

In many countries, including Ukraine, domestic violence is a major issue that can manifest in various forms: e.g. psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional. Though it remains usually underreported to the local authorities, official statistics from the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine indicate that Ukraine has seen a clear increase in the number of cases reported over the first half of 2020.

As people are staying more at home under the COVID-19 quarantine measures, the domestic violence situation becomes more acute in the country. That is why EUAM Ukraine keeps on supporting counterparts like the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MoIA) and the National Police of Ukraine (NPU) with awareness-raising campaigns on gender-based violence and violence against children.

Gender responsive leadership at EUAM
