Support for Rule of Law Reforms in Ukraine (PRAVO II) Project
The European Union funded ‘Support for Rule of Law Reforms in the Areas of Police, Public Prosecution and Good Governance Project’ (known as PRAVO II) has the overall objective of supporting Rule of Law in Ukraine through strengthening the systems in place to support policing, prosecution and civilian governance in Ukraine and to align its functioning with the best European and International practices.
This PRAVO II Project supports the creation of an efficient law-enforcement system respectful of human rights in support of the people of Ukraine, through the provision of necessary support to the National Police and other Ukrainian authorities in charge of civilian law-enforcement.

The PRAVO II Project further provides support to law enforcement agencies (LEAs) capacity to upgrade their Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) supported processes and infrastructure, as well as ICT management capacity through the provision of ICT assessments, procurement of ICT equipment, and a range of other ICT solutions. This in turn will contribute to enhanced efficiency and effectiveness of LEAs’ services, while improving their accountability, transparency, and respect of human rights.
