December 01, 2022 Ukrainian Political And Economic Landscape In The Future: Is There A Place For Women?

Daryna Dvornichenko, PhD, Ass. Professor will share her reflections on women’s engagement in politics and the economy before and after 24 February in Ukraine. Despite the introduction of various instruments for mainstreaming gender-balanced policies, their effectiveness was relatively low in pre-war Ukraine. The numerous persistent factors that hamper women’s political participation prove that Ukraine still had much to do to create a level playing field for men and women in politics and the economy. Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022 has dramatically changed the political and economic landscape. There is a high risk of rollback of those not-so-numerous achievements gained before 24.02.2022. The findings from the interviews with women politicians and entrepreneurs presented at the meeting will provide a clear picture of the challenges women face in pre-war and post-invasion Ukraine. Founding PRME B4P Working Group, Co-Chair John Katsos from the American University of Sharjah, and Sophie Kacki from PRME Secretariat will also give a few remarks. Darina Dvornichenko is a Project Coordinator for the project entitled “Utilization and Implementation of the Association Agreement between the EU and Ukraine in the field of trade/EU4Business: SME Competitiveness and Internationalisation,” led by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. Darina received her Ph.D. in political science from Odesa I. I. Mechnikov National University, where she also earned an M.A. and B.A. in international relations. Additionally, she earned certificates at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the European Academy of Diplomacy (Warsaw), and the British Law Centre. Before 24 February 2022, she worked as an associate professor at the National University Odesa Maritime Academy and as an adviser to the head of the Research Institute of Informatics and Law of the National Academy of Legal Sciences of Ukraine. In addition, she has been a guest lecturer at the University for Foreigners in Perugia, the University of Zagreb, and Ukrainian Catholic University. She is the author of over 40 publications on issues of European integration and gender. In 2021, Darina was affiliated with the University of Wroclaw as a Kirkland Research Fellow, and in 2022 she completed a year as a Fellow at the German Marshall Fund of the United States doing research on the role of women in politics in Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova. She is also a founder of “Agents of Change!”—a nongovernmental organization that promotes women’s participation in decision-making and non-formal education in Ukraine.
