Elite Giving in Ukraine: State Relations and Legitimacy

Abstract [en]

Since the late 1990’s, private philanthropy foundations have been initiated by wealthy businessmen-politicians in Ukraine. This article explores whichpurposes these giving organizations serve. The empirical base of the study consists of forty-six original interviews, of which the main part is with donors, directors and project managers of ten foundations in focus. Additional interviews with experts and other donors-businessmen and giving organizations provided me with important viewpoints as well as the institutional framework within which the giving organizations exist. The article shows how the institutionalization of elite giving in Ukraine can be interpreted as a mix of compensating for state failure in order to benefit society, a legitimation strategy of the wealthy elite, and an instrument for state actors to influence business.
