Contribute to the strengthening of USPS institutional potential
The Ukrainian school is one of 21 schools of political studies operating under the auspices of the Council of Europe. The USPS programme was launched in 2005 as a democratic achievement of the Orange Revolution and on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Ukraine's accession to the Council of Europe. The School is an educational project, designed to improve culture of public politics in Ukraine, coming out of principles of justice, trust and dialogue. USPS today is:
years of experience
Alumni in the Community
Promotion of democratic
and European development of Ukraine
and European development of Ukraine
USPS contributes to establishment of fundamental human rights and freedoms in Ukraine, to formation of new democratic mindset of Ukrainians and integration of our state into the European Community.
Responsibility to the Community and society
USPS has a clear and unshakable values framework that we adhere to in our activities and within the Community. We are aware of responsibility for our work and crystallise the School as a territory of trust and dialogue. Therefore, alumni, who violate our principles, leave the Community.
Unity in diversity
The School unites primarily personalities -- people from different regions and various environments. USPS Alumni are united in the value dimension and desire to work on development of Ukraine as a strong and independent state.
Independence and non-partisanship
The School has always been politically neutral and non-partisan, maintaining dialogue between different parties, movements and platforms and was out of influence of any political force. USPS will never have a dialogue with political forces of pro-Russian orientation.
