Overview

A Ukrainian anti-corruption activist and political advisor, Kateryna Handziuk was attacked with sulphuric acid in July 2018, and died from her injuries on 4 November 2018. Five suspects have been arrested, including a former police officer believed to have led the assault. But it does not appear any of those arrested ordered the attack... The killing of Kateryna Handzyuk is only the tip of the iceberg in a series of more than fifty-five attacks against civil society activists in Ukraine since 2017; for which only a handful of actual perpetrators have been arrested and none of the people who ordered the attacks have been identified. Critical, but also deeply sensitive and humane, this book explores social scientific and ethical approaches, so that fundamental human rights can be restored in Ukraine. Social challenges ? such as abuse of power and political corruption ? are also explored in this work, as corruption still highlights one of Ukraine's main problems; Ukraine being the most corrupt country in Europe.
