Share this project
In response to public distrust of the justice system, the Ukrainian government has been engaged in a major reform of the judiciary since 2015. Launched in late 2017, the PRAVO-Justice project is part of a large-scale programme to promote justice sector reform, with financial support coordinated by several international backers. Funded by the European Union, the project is led by
Expertise France, in partnership with JCI (France), CPMA (Lithuania), DCAF (Switzerland) and CFI for the implementation of its media component.
Television is the main source of information in Ukraine. The media landscape is characterised by a lack of credible public sector broadcasters, while private channels are monopolised by a handful of oligarchs who use them to promote their own economic and political objectives. The result is a widespread lack of public trust in the media.
Aimed at both Ukrainian journalists and members of the country's judiciary, the ultimate goal of the project is to improve public understanding of judicial reforms through the media.
