About these proceedings


Ukraine is without doubt geographically a part of Europe. And yet, the integration process into international and European structures, which Ukraine has consistently pursued since its independence in 1991, is not firmly anchored in the perceptions of either Ukrainians or most international observers. To many Ukrainians the road to Europe is synonymous with membership in the EU or at least with a treaty of association. To travel this road, however, Ukraine will have to first mobilise its economic potential by accelerating and intensifying the process of transformation and by opening its economy. In this volume the authors - German advisors to the Ukrainian Government, researchers and politicians from neighbouring countries and representatives of European institutions - provide proposals for the reform of the Ukrainian economy that will help it move closer to Europe. Europe is many things - certainly more than the EU, and certainly Ukraine is part of it.
