Ukrainian School of Political Studies (USPS) is a joint project of the Agency for Legislative Initiatives and the Council of Europe, founded in 2005. It unites successful young people: representatives of politics, civil service, civil society, academia, business, media and arts from all over the Ukraine.
The project aims to become a milieu for young Ukrainian changemakers to connect and find like-minded people who would promote democratic values through their professional and personal engagements, to be a one-stop shop for democratic education and raising general political culture.
The mission of the School is training, networking, information, intellectual support, and value orientation of responsible leaders, changemakers and opinion leaders on national and local levels.
The comfortable interactive atmosphere and innovative approaches create favorable conditions for learning and ideological development of participants and alumni of the School.
USPS activities include school sessions, participation in the World Forum for Democracy, meetings of the USPS club, alumni seminars and study trips. The USPS Conference is also held annually.
Agency for Legislative Initiatives implements a number of other projects on the basis of the Ukrainian School of Political Studies. School of Community Leaders aims to develop and strengthen the effectiveness of local communities by involving civil society and the vanguard of active youth and volunteers in local politics and improving their competence. USPS Parliamentary Program creates a permanent educational and communication platform for interaction between the newly elected MPs and expert circles in order to increase the quality of political process and provide them with skills and knowledge necessary for the adoption of sound political and state decisions in the parliament. Party Innovation Hub is a unique platform for disseminating knowledge about the use of modern technologies and innovations for the development of party democracy in Ukraine.
