Ukraine is a modern European country with a fully developed system of democratic institutions and information society (Webster 2002). Yet, being one of the largest post-Soviet countries, it inherited a number of complex geopolitical problems, which since 1991 have been constantly monitored by key international actors such as The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) and Human Rights Watch (see Ukraine 2020).

Through this monitoring, large-scale political conflicts – such as the armed conflict in the Donbass region, the annexation of Crimea (2014) and the Ukraine/U.S. relationship – and their human rights implications have received extensive research and human rights coverage (see for example Pifer 2017; Menon & Rumer 2015; Grias 2016, as well as my own research on the topic Pasholok (Korolkova) 2013), while smaller case studies attract significantly less attention. Yet, it is these smaller cases, and in particular cases related to media and information society development, that interest me in this research. By giving a voice to civil society organisations and non-government social justice actors, this research explores the current state of information society in the country from the bottom up. It questions the state of information society in the country through exploring local civil society organisations, and in the process of evaluation produces a set of action points that may be needed to support the development of information society in Ukraine.
