Civic Initiative "Europe without Barriers""
Europe without Barriers (EWB) aimed at implementing both research and advocacy activities for further strategical cooperation between the European Union and Ukraine in all directions. Among other activities EWB’ is focused on achieving visa-free travel in the whole Europe based on relevant public safety standards. As a temporary benchmark, EWB provides independent monitoring and advocacy for proper implementation of existent legal norms, such as the Visa Facilitation Agreements (VFA) and the EU Visa Code. EWB considers Ukraine a success story in terms of short-term travel regulation, as it has implemented an open country policy model, providing visa-free access for all Council of Europe Member States on the basis of either reciprocity or unilateral asymmetric decision.
