Local councillors play a key role within the decentralisation process in Ukraine
A three-day workshop organised in Odessa, from 13 to 15 June, by the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities, gathered together 32 councillors from 7 Southern and Eastern regions of Ukraine. Discussions focused on their engagement and priorities to develop their communities, as well as on ways to enhance trust of citizens. Notably, they had the opportunity to share their experience in implementing initiatives on local democracy with experts from Ireland, Lithuania and Ukraine. As Sergiy Mazur, member of the Congress (Ukraine, CRE-ECR), pointed out: “Exchanging good practices with councillors from other European countries is key for Ukrainian local councillors to succeed in creating resilient communities”. This workshop was organised in the framework of the project “Promoting local democracy in Ukraine”, which is part of the Council of Europe Action Plan for Ukraine 2015-2017. It aims to improve the implementation of democratic principles in Ukraine, by enhancing the institutional and leadership capacities of local elected representatives (mayors and local councillors), and disseminating nation-wide good practices of local democracy.
