At the EUACI, we are making a difference in preventing and fighting corruption in Ukraine.

We provide strategic capacity building, institutional and legislative support. We are bringing the best international anti-corruption expertise to Ukraine.

In 2024, a new phase of the EUACI is launched. The EUACI strategic objectives are that: corruption in Ukraine is reduced; Ukraine advances with anti-corruption reform; and reconstruction in war-affected areas of Ukraine is implemented within a framework that incorporates transparency, accountability and integrity.
