04 Aug 2017 37 pages


This study was built on data and expert opinions generously provided by local social workers and justice actors, including judges, prosecutors, police, legal aid, representatives of the Ombudsperson’s Office and of local administrations. Several organizations also offered invaluable assistance, including Country of Free People, Danish Refugee Council, HelpAid, IDLO, Slavic Heart, “Suchasnyy Format” the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Special Monitoring Mission, and US Department of Justice. UN agencies, including UNAIDS, UNHCR, UNICEF, UN-OCHA, OHCHR and UN Women have also provided helpful assistance and cooperation.

Above all, this report would not have been possible without the 3,900 respondents who volunteered their time and gave invaluable insights to better inform our understanding of community justice and security in conflict-affected areas of Ukraine.

This report was prepared by Survey Methodological Expert Heather Goldsmith.

This publication has been prepared in the framework of the UNDP Ukraine Rule of Law and Community Justice for Conflict-Affected Areas in Ukraine Project with financial support from the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ukraine.
