Assistance to Ukraine in increasing public awareness about NATO: Slovakia’s experience

Supported by: grant of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Slovak Republic

Project time-span: May 2007 –January 2008

Project team: Ms. Oľga Gyárfášová (IVO), Mr. Alexander Duleba (RC SFPA), Mr. Vladimír Tarasovič (CENAA)

: Research Center of Slovak Foreign Policy Association (RC SFPA) and Center Centre for European and North Atlantic Affairs (CENAA)


Project aims to assist Ukrainian NGOs, but also other public actors, to raise Ukrainian public’s awareness towards the integration into NATO, especially in the regions with least support for the NATO accession.

Slovak team – composed of experts in political science, sociology, and public opinion polling and communication, as well as security issues - is going to organize workshops and trainings in several Ukrainian regions. All these experts were actively involved in integration processes in Slovakia and in addition they have rich experiences in working with Ukrainian NGOs.

Main activities:

  • Two regional conferences - Crimea (Simferopoľ), Donetsk (Marioupoľ).
  • Training for opinion leaders (above all journalists and NGOs representatives) in Kiev.
  • The publication (in Ukrainian language) will focus on Slovak experiences from the Euro-Atlantic integration and communication campaign in Slovakia (the publication is co-funded by NATO Public Diplomacy Division).
