The Center for Economic Strategy is a non-governmental think tank on economic policy, founded in May 2015. The task of the CES is to support reforms in Ukraine in order to achieve sustainable economic growth. The Center carries out an independent analysis of the most important aspects of public policy, as well as works to strengthen public support for reforms.

Many think tanks focus on studying the virus and its impact on economic, political, social and cultural processes in certain countries and in the world as a whole.

We have launched a new section – COVID-19: Research, where we monitor the leading research, analysis and statistics on Covid-19 in think tanks. We publish these materials so that our readers have access to quality analytics on those issues.
