CASE Ukraine was founded by the Polish CASE Foundation with the aim of promoting research in the economic, political, and social spheres, thereby contributing to the process of development of civil society in Ukraine. CASE Ukraine staff have worked in a number of joint projects with the Harvard Institute for International Development (HIID), the Soros International Economic Advisory Group (SIEAG), the Barents Group, and others. CASE Ukraine is a member of the CASE Network, established by the CASE Foundation, which includes think tanks in Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, and Kyrgyzstan.
