1 ROADMAP Modernization of the System of Professional Training of Public Servants National Academy of Public Administration, Office of the President of Ukraine

2 Freedom requires sophisticated organization  A debate rages today in post-Soviet countries about a “historic choice” between freedom and order. Freedom is equated to chaos, so the tendency is to favor “order without freedom.”  Ukraine also faces the risk of losing the political freedoms it won for itself, because those government institutions that are supposed to ensure that the new political objectives are being met remain unreformed.  We are all witnesses to the fact that the gap between real political freedom and the absence of political order inevitably leads to chaos and corruption. National Academy of Public Administration, Office of the President of Ukraine

3 A democratic Ukraine through a democratized government  The best intentions of reform cannot be carried out when the knowledge and skills necessary to work in the environment of openness and fierce political competition are completely lacking.  The 2 June 2006 Presidential Decree has challenged the National Academy to fill the gap in disseminating these unfamiliar democratic skills and knowledge. National Academy of Public Administration, Office of the President of Ukraine
