Support for Rule of Law Reforms in Ukraine (PRAVO POLICE) Project

The European Union funded ‘Support for Rule of Law Reforms in the Areas of Police, Public Prosecution and Good Governance Project’ (known as PRAVO POLICE) has the overall objective of supporting Rule of Law in Ukraine through strengthening the systems in place to support policing, prosecution and civilian governance in Ukraine and to align its functioning with the best European and International practices.

This PRAVO POLICE Project supports the creation of an efficient law-enforcement system respectful of human rights in support of the people of Ukraine, through the provision of necessary support to the National Police and other Ukrainian authorities in charge of civilian law-enforcement.
