Victor Liakh, 2008 Fellow
President of the East Europe Foundation (EEF)
Since 2012 Victor has been the President of the East Europe Foundation (EEF), a privately-managed, not-for-profit organisation which seeks to mobilise public and private resources for social development in Ukraine. EEF was launched in January 2008 and is a member of Eurasia Foundation Network. It focuses on four programme areas: local economic and social development, support for good governance, corporate social responsibility and responsible philanthropy, and business and economics education.
As President, Victor has guided the EEF through a process of transformation – from an internationally-run programme office (sustained by the OSCE) to purely Ukrainian-run sustainable organization.
