Post-war reconstruction in Ukraine might be the largest such rebuilding effort in modern history. A recent RAND study analyzed previous, relevant reconstruction efforts—including in Western Europe following World War II, in Central and Eastern Europe following the Cold War, and after natural disasters—to draw key lessons for creating a prosperous and secure future for Ukraine.

In this Policy Lab, coauthor of the study, Howard Shatz, will break down the key findings. An overarching conclusion is that reconstruction will be most successful if Ukraine sets the priorities, the United States leads on security assistance, and the European Union leads on reform and economic assistance.
