Focus on Ukraine
The Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung has supported the democratic transition and the protection of human rights in Ukraine for years. Since 2008, the hbs office in Kiev has supported civil society groups engaged in political education, regional projects for climate protection, gender and equality politics, and the protection of human rights.
The future of Ukraine has also been a prominent topic in the political discourse in Washington, DC. Hbs North America promotes a progressive transatlantic dialogue on the problems facing post-Maidan Ukraine. Our activities include workshops, roundtable discussions, and study trips to Ukraine, often in cooperation with other offices of the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung as well as institutes and think tanks in Washington, DC.
