 Our Programme

The EUACI is a joint EU and Government of Denmark financed programme aimed at supporting Ukraine in its efforts to reduce corruption at the national and local level through the empowerment of citizens, civil society, businesses, and state institutions. The overall objective of the EU Anti-Corruption Initiative is to improve the implementation of the Ukrainian anti-corruption policy by supporting the key anti-corruption state institutions: strengthening oversight of reform implementation by Parliament; and at the regional and local levels supporting civil society, investigative media, business and local governments, thus substantially improving Ukraine’s overall performance in the fight against corruption.

The full-scale Russian invasion has changed the context of the program. The EUACI is now pursuing four thematic areas: Reconstruction and anti-corruption, EU -integration in the field of anti-corruption, asset recovery and tracing and resilience of EUACI’s partners.
