Multilingual Education in Ukraine

Multilingualism has been conceived and practiced as a tool for dialogue, building capacity and performance around the world, and has proven particularly relevant in multi-ethnic societies in need of dialogue and reconciliation. Following several positive experiences in the former Soviet region, and an expression of interest on the side of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, PATRIR has engaged since 2014 on an initiative to assess the context and later to pilot a multilingual education project (MLE) in three Ukrainian regions:  Odessa, Chernivtsi and Transcarpathia. Upon confirmation of interest in such an initiative by the main stakeholders in Ukraine, the objectives were set as three-fold:

  • ensure capacities for quality education
  • develop inter-community understanding, interaction and interdependence and
  • improve social cohesion and reduce tensions, with a first year focused on piloting and capacity building
