On 4 October, International IDEA will co-organize an international roundtable in Kiev on “Parliamentary immunity and indemnity. Amendments to the Constitution”. The debate will focus on the restriction of parliamentary immunity for Ukrainian MPs. The main purpose of the discussion is to examine the positions of parliamentary factions about the immunity of MPs and to discuss whether to limit parliamentary immunity.
The roundtable is conducted together with the USAID Program “RADA: Responsible Accountable Democratic Assembly”, the Centre of Policy and Legal Reform, and the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe, with the support from the European Union. The event follows on from the recent International IDEA publication and event on “Semi-presidentialism and Inclusive Governance in Ukraine”.
