Kiev, Ukraine was the site of a workshop on constitutional law focused on the country of Ukraine and it’s fight to become democratic. While America was worried about the 2016 election, America stood strong and acknowledge a transition of power, thanks to the framework of the United States Constitution. The U.S. Constitution has become one of the finest documents ever written and has become the map for other countries to follow, who are seeking to become democratic.

The Ukraine government does not have balanced system of checks and balances, so policies are difficult to put in place. Ukraine is in a unique place because it has a president and prime minister, making government a misguided process. Related article on law.nyu.edu.
