State Building in Ukraine: The Ukrainian Parliament, 1990-2003

Synopsis

This book examines the development of the Ukrainian parliament - the Verkhovna Rada - from before Ukraine's independence in 1991 to the present. It shows how the parliament transformed itself from a provincial republican Soviet to the national legislature of a sovereign state, and from a nominal, symbolic body to a genuine legislative and representative institution. It discusses the key role of parliament in the wider state-building process, and examines the evolution of political factions and the committee system in the parliament.
