The Department of Public Policy at Central European University (DPP) in collaboration with the Global Labor Organization (GLO) and the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) hosted the CEU-GLO-CEPR Workshop on the Reconstruction of Ukraine as a part of the GLO Global Conference 2022 on December 1, 2022 in Vienna.
Following up on the CEPR blueprint on the reconstruction of Ukraine, the CEPR has put together a group of scientists around the world, with two lead authors on each chapter – one from the EU and one from Ukraine – to provide a salient detailed roadmap covering various sectors and policy areas for the reconstruction of Ukraine from Day 1. CEU and GLO have contributed several experts to this endeavor and held a workshop on the reconstruction of Ukraine covering the chapters of the report broadly related to labor issues.
“The efforts to reconstruct Ukraine will need to be based on salient evidence so that the valuable resources and social and political capital available are put to their most effective use. It will be crucial to ensure the participation of all social groups in the reconstruction efforts to enable and empower them to be part of, and contributors to the state- and peace-building efforts,” remarked Martin Kahanec.
