First Workshop Implemented for the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine

Prof. Dr. Mathias Jopp, Director of the IEP, and Anne Bercio, Project Leader at the IEP, success­fully imple­mented the first workshop at the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on basics of the Deep and Compre­hensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA). With the EU-Ukraine DCFTA entering into force on January 1, 2016, the series aims at enabling members of the Verkhovna Rada to under­stand the content, pre-requi­sites, and legal dimen­sions of the Associ­ation Agreement for sound imple­men­tation. The partic­i­pants are members of parlia­mentary committees and secre­taries in the Verkhovna Rada.

The project is kindly supported by the Federal Foreign Office of the Republic of Germany.
