The results of the research conducted in four towns in Ukraine pictured that 25% of Lutsk locals show active citizenship. Except Lutsk, the research was done in Odessa, Chernihiv and Severodonetsk.

Experts state that among all these towns Lutsk authorities extensively involve the population into problem solving. Just in Lutsk there is such an institution as local initiative and a workgroup, that elaborates town development strategies. Besides, there were two public hearings initiated by the locals.

The imperfection of power cooperation with the community is the lack of ‘general meeting’ mechanism in the town.
