In Search of a New Democracy – Study Abroad Program

Country: Ukraine
Category: Educational Development Programs


This program was a team effort between PH and the School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University and provided annual one-month intensive academic programs for two years. In Search of a New Democracy offered MSU students a unique opportunity to study first-hand Ukraine's transition from communism to a free-market economy, providing classroom and field experience that included homestays in Lviv and Kyiv. The program had special focus on old and new problems facing Ukrinian law enforcement and their struggles to adapt, consolidate and reconfigure their system and deal with new criminal issues arising in an open and free society.
