Russia's War Against Ukraine

Intro Map
Russia's invasion of Ukraine has been a humanitarian disaster. It has also presented unprecedented challenges for a functioning government, ranging from the destruction of infrastructure to displacement and loss of staff.

International IDEA, together with a network of Ukrainian legal experts, has provided expertise to the parliamentary leadership on how the legislature can best operate during war, including looking at how other countries have coped with providing public services during conflict.

The network has also addressed questions from citizens, ranging from labour and employment rights under martial law to the operation of the courts. Legal advice was provided to citizens through social media, leading to 580,000 views on Facebook.


This page offers links to International IDEA's research and analysis on democracy in the region, including policy briefs, opinion pieces from our experts, podcasts, webinars and our flagship Global State of Democracy Indices on European nations.
