The Institute of Innovative Governance is a public non-governmental organization which aims to strengthen the capacity of innovative democracy by introducing technology projects which benefit civil society. We believe that the innovative type of development that is based on respect for human rights will enable Ukraine to become a developed country, accelerate its integration into the European Union and help to build sound civil society.
Innovations in our opinion are new, effective solutions to the existing problems that meet the needs of society. Innovations are often associated with the concepts of creative design and creativity that emphasize the need for thorough research of existing problems and allow to find the most interesting and optimal solutions, ideas, products or concepts.
A person and his/her needs and rights are in the center of every innovation. Thus, one of the approaches used by the Institute in its work is an approach based on human rights. According to the United Nations definition, a human rights-based approach is critical to peace, sustainable human development, democracy and security. The approach helps to raise the level of citizen engagement in managing decisions, take into account the interests of vulnerable groups of society, increase transparency and accountability, promote respect for human rights and assist authorities in promoting fundamental human rights.
