Brief description:

Despite daily reports of conflict in Eastern Ukraine, the Government of Ukraine has put forward over 60 new reforms. These Internships will work with the Research Initiative on Democratic Reforms in Ukraine Project, which explores three dimensions of reform: good governance and the rule of law; post-secondary education reform; and nationality and language policies.

All three topics investigate both as they emerge in Ukraine and as they impact the diaspora in Canada and beyond (http://ridru.artsrn.ua lberta.ca/).
