Discussed Schools for Democracy in Ukraine

Norway's Ambassador to Ukraine Ole T Horpestad visited EWC while in Oslo earlier this May. During the meeting Ana Perona-Fjeldstad and Iryna Sabor presented EWC's ongoing work in Ukraine in support of educational reforms.


Results from one year democratization projects in schools were discussed, with new procedures for democratic governance of schools, reducing bullying and mobbing, innovative integration of EDC/HRE into subjects, partnerships promoting equal relations established. Ana Perona_fjeldstad also presented EWC policy advice efforts in the country as part of the New Ukrainian School reform group.

The ambassador highly appreciated the work EWC does in Ukraine and agreed that continued efforts are needed to help make the school system more participatory and provide future generations of Ukrainians with quality education rooted in democracy and human rights.

Earlier in the month, Ingjerd Schou, Head of the Norwegian Parliament's delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), and Eric Christensen and Dorthe Bakke from the International Department at the Parliament, visited the centre for an update on the EWC's work and discussions on current European issues.
