Clingendael is co-hosting the side event ‘Resilience, Reconstruction, Prosperity: Perspectives for Ukraine’s Economy’ before the Ukraine Recovery Conference 2024 on Monday 10 June in Berlin.

The 2024 Ukraine Recovery Conference in Berlin provides an opportunity to re-set the global policy framework around a concrete plan of action that links Ukraine’s immediate economic needs in the war effort with its long-term re-development goals.

There is a need for high quality policy analysis and research from a range of perspectives to feed into the discussions of the URC’s key themes, i.e. engaging private capital with focus on concrete projects and initiatives; the European aspects of Ukraine’s recovery; regions and cities; and human capital –  including the vital role of social protections.  

Our side conference on the 10 June 2024, Resilience, Reconstruction, Prosperity: Perspectives for Ukraine’s Economy, will be the culmination of a process that feeds research and policy briefs from civil society and the academic community directly into the Berlin Ukraine Recovery Conference.

Louise van Schaik, Head of Clingendael's EU & Global Affairs Unit, is a panelist in the opening session, which will introduce the themes and questions for the day and offer an initial assessment of Ukraine’s progress and challenges in the face of the Russian invasion:
