National expert forum/ 30 May, Kiev, Ukraine


Published on

The Gorshenin Institute is an independent, non-profit analytical and research centre studying social and political processes in Ukraine, Europe and across the world. The Gorshenin Institute holds regular events aimed at providing a platform for broad expert discussions on the topical political, social and economic, cultural and other issues of concern to our society.

In February 2013, the Gorshenin Institute organized the National Expert Forum "Ukraine 2013. Forecast". The National Expert Forum is a communication platform for Ukrainian and international politicians, government officials, members of parliament, experts, pundits, diplomats and public activists. The goal of the forum is to discuss prospects for Ukraine's development. The range of issues on the expert agenda covers Ukrainian politics, economy, civil society, economic and energy security, geopolitical developments and the country's role in the global world.

Over 400 participants attended the Expert Forum in February. It was broadly covered by Ukrainian mass media. You can find a more detailed report about the February 2013 National Expert Forum here

Extensive feedback provided by the forum participants and mass media suggests that there is a need in Ukraine for regular expert analysis of ongoing processes as well as for search for development strategies. Therefore the Gorshenin Institute made a decision to hold panel discussions within the framework of the Expert Forum on a quarterly basis.

Given the high profile of your organization, we would like to invite you to cooperate and partner us with us in holding the next stage of the National Expert Forum scheduled for May 2013. We will be happy to answer any queries you might have with regard to the forum.
