WORKING CLOSER TOGETHER WITH UKRAINE

The ECMI has been now active in Ukraine for several years. The ECMI Eastern Partnership Programme NATIONAL MINORITIES AND ETHNOPOLITICAL ISSUES: BELARUS · MOLDOVA · UKRAINE (EPP), supported by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, finished in 2018 and resulted in a substantial amount of findings. As part of the EPP, the ECMI has collected extensive data about current ethno-cultural relations in Ukraine. This has resulted in a number of recommendations on how to improve existing frameworks and design new measures to enhance national minority protection. The results of the Programme will continue to be disseminated among Ukrainian stakeholders in 2019. Thanks to the Programme, the ECMI was able to found a significant cooperation with the Ministry of Culture in Ukraine and will continue the cooperation in the form of expert support and consultations. An ECMI representative in Ukraine received a status of an observing member of The Expert Council of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine for Ethnopolitical Affaires which allows the ECMI to continue its work as an important monitoring and observing entity in the area of national minorities in Ukraine. It is the vision of the ECMI to continue its work in the promotion and protection of the rights of national minorities in Ukraine. The research focus includes mainstreaming in decentralisation, indigenous rights, IDPs' rights, equality in education and the media.
