Coalition and consensus building of political parties in Ukraine
In cooperation with NDI, the Oslo Center is supporting political parties in strengthening political processes and institutions. Exchanging information and experiences related to coalition and consensus building is one of the projects main tools.
The Oslo Center has been working with the political parties in Ukraine since 2015. In a cooperation with National Democratic Institute, a specific focus has been given to providing the political parties with experiences related to coalition and consensus building from a Norwegian perspective.
Through a range of seminars and trainings on consensus and coalition building, key actors from the Verkhovna Rada are sharing international experiences and best practices from practitioners from other parliaments and governments.
The Oslo Center seeks to assist in building a culture of consensus and trust among the political parties in order for them to promote the reforms requested by the Ukrainian people at Maidan in 2014.
The Oslo Center has participated in consultations and workshops with the political parties, and assist the political parties upon request. Immediate results have been visible in the form of constructive multi-party meetings.
The Oslo Center is very much engaged in the ongoing reform process in Ukraine. We hope to assisting in equipping the political parties with the tools to overcome political barriers and deadlocks, leading to an improved relationship within and between political parties.
