Ukraine: Fighting Corruption During a War and Beyond
- April 05, 2023
The decades-old issue of corruption in Ukraine was overshadowed by Russia’s invasion last year. However, it regained prominence earlier this year when President Zelensky (who had campaigned against graft) removed several senior officials, including the administration’s deputy head. More recently, the government appointed a new anti-corruption head, after almost a year without one. How important is fighting corruption to the war effort and beyond, what are the challenges and opportunities – and what role does the media play? Join the Stigler Center for a conversation on these topics and more with Roger Myerson (University of Chicago), Tymofiy Mylovanov (Kyiv School of Economics) and Olga Rudenko (Kyiv Independent), moderated by Stephen Carroll (Bloomberg).
