Barometer of Change "Administrative Reform: impact asessment"
We present you the first issue of the Quarterly "Barometer of Change", dedicated to the impact asessment of administrative reform.
The periodical Barometer of Change is a natural response from Ukraine’s civil society to the strong reformist trend in their Government and its purpose is to analyze and assess the impact that various reforms will have in Ukraine. This kind of impact assessment is an integral component of oversight over reform and of public participation in this process.
This report has been prepared using the classic approach to assessing the impact of reforms that is used in EU countries. The approach involves separating the short-term and long-term consequences of reforms, as well as their impact on the main stakeholder groups. This first issue of Barometer of Change focuses on evaluating the impact of administrative reform as the process that will determine the Government’s capacity to successfully implement all other reforms.
