In my talk I am going to present results from my study of the use of presidential vetoes in the new EU member states in Central and Eastern Europe and compare these findings with how Ukrainian presidents from 1998 to to 2012 have used their power to block legislation.

Place: Ukrainian Institute

The talk will be held in English; admission is free and everybody is welcome! There will be an opportunity of Q&A after the talk as well as a wine reception.
