Iryna Shvets
For more than 7 years, Iryna has worked at Civil Network OPORA in Lviv, Ukraine, an NGO that's part of the OPORA network. OPORA's mission is to enhance public participation in the political process by using models of citizens’ influence to impact activities of state and local government.

OPORA is mostly known as a watch-dog network for Ukraine's election process. Since 2007, the Network has implemented three national (involving up to 3,500 observers) and eight local election monitoring campaigns. Due to the rich experience and innovative approaches of OPORA activists, its observation results are highly trusted and enjoy respect among different stake-holders.

Iryna as a team member was involved in the planning and conduct of observation campaigns, especially designing communication strategies, disseminating and promoting observation results on both regional and national levels.
