Hundreds of thousands of employment disputes occur every year in Ukraine. Most of these disputes are about people’s most valuable human capital – their ability to work, earn stable income and guarantee the future for themselves and their families. Fair and secure employment relationships are the backbone of inclusive societies and prospering economies.

It has been a very intense, interesting and fruitful time lately for HiiL in Ukraine. We’ve been trying and pushing hard to uphold the justice entrepreneurship spirit in Ukraine in 2016. Since it is the end of the year I’ve decided to wrap-up main stepping stones of this not even full year of HiiL’s activities.

You have probably heard about Rechtwijzer (or you certainly will be if you have visited the HiiL website!) Our online separation platform has been live in The Netherlands for the past year and a half, guiding couples through the difficult process of separation step by step. It was born out of a Justice Needs Survey completed in Holland in 2014 which clearly spelled out the impact divorce has on Dutch society. ¾ of all divorce related problems result in mental health problems, be they stress or something more severe. 22% result in violence. Citizens reported financial worries, confusion as to the complexity of the process, and that agreements certified by courts do not always work for the couple when acted out in real life. And this impact stretches further than the separating couple themselves, but reverberates through their children, family and friends.
