In its annual Freedom in the World report, Freedom House downgraded Ukraine from “Free” to “Partly Free.” With support from the Open Society Foundations, Freedom House went on to conduct a supplementary assessment of the current state of democracy and human rights in the country.
Freedom House and the Open Society Foundations invite you to the release of “Sounding the Alarm: A Freedom House Report on the State of Democracy and Human Rights in Ukraine.” At this event, the authors of the report will outline Ukraine’s current socio-political atmosphere, explain their conclusions, and outline concrete steps for both Ukraine and the international community to prevent further democratic backsliding and to promote democratic values in Ukraine.
- David Kramer, Executive Director, Freedom House
- Damon Wilson, Vice President, Atlantic Council
- Robert Nurick, Non-Resident Senior Fellow, Atlantic Council
- Jeff Goldstein, Senior Policy Analyst, Open Society Foundations (moderator)
Light refreshments will be served.
