Working Group on Ukraine 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The CoR Working Group on Ukraine was created by the CoR Bureau in April 2020, under the auspices of the Conference of the Local and Regional Authorities for the Eastern Partnership (CORLEAP), as a continuation of the former Ukraine Task Force, set up in 2015. The Working Group aims to provide targeted political and technical support to Ukrainian partners to help them achieve good governance at all levels, reinforce local democracy, and advance decentralisation reform.​​
In view of the Russian military invasion in Ukraine, the Working Group took up its political role of formulating CoR response and supporting our Ukrainian partners through these enormously difficult times​.

​Peer-to-peer cooperation

The work of the Ukraine Task Force has evolved over the years from offering general policy advice towards more concrete projects, focused on developing capacity-building in support of public administration reform. In 2018, a peer-to-peer cooperation initiative was implemented with the support of the U-LEAD programme. Five EU-Ukrainian pairs of partners worked on projects in the field of local economic development, tourism, energy efficiency, rural development and citizens' involvement. At the final wrap-up event on 13 February 2019 in Brussels, the stakeholders concluded that the aims of the pilot phase of the peer-to-peer cooperation were achieved.

The next phase of peer-to-peer cooperation is planned to take place in 2022, with the support of the European Union Anti-Corruption Initiative (EUACI) and its "Integrity Cities" concept. The cities will exchange experience in the field of fighting corruption and raising transparency of local public administration.

​How is it composed?

The Working Group is led by Ms. Alexandra Dulkiewicz (EPP/PL) and consists of six CoR members. They meet twice per year. The members of the Working Group are: Mr Stavros Stavrinides (PES/CY), Mr Pavel Branda (ECR/CZ), Mr Gints Kaminskis (Renew Europe/LV), Mr Krzysztof Iwaniuk (EA/PL) and Mr Florian Siekmann (Greens/DE).
