EU-Ukraine Association Agreement: Guideline for Reforms
On September 10, 2012 presentation of a new KAS-publication took place in Ukrinform. Publication by the Ukrainian experts is the first attempt of a deep, holistic analysis of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU as an innovative legal document and phenomena of international law that will affect all significant regulatory spheres in Ukraine. Authors highlight the key aspects of the AA and analyze consequences of the AA's implementation for general population.
Decentralisation, federalism and local self-governance are integral parts of political reform processes in many countries of the world. Today there is hardly any country that has a purely centralised political organisation. Decentralisation alone does not lead to more democracy, but it can promote the democratisation process.
Political parties play a central role in democratic societies because they represent the interests of society and they allow the citizens to exert influence on the political decision-making process. The present publication of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung is thought to offer an introduction to organisational structures and functions of political parties as well as to depict their place within a democratic society.
