Making the ends meet: The Word and Action in the Office of Ukraine’s 1994-1999 President

Valery Shyrokov, UNU-MERIT / School of Governance

The research adopts a cross-disciplinary approach to the identification of election pledges (linguistic analysis) and the verification of their fulfilment (political and legal analysis), both being qualitative.

Being at the heart of the election campaign, the Election Programme sets forth Candidate’s aspirations and orientations for future policymaking, goals and objectives, and, most importantly, the ways of achieving the declared ends. As such, it needs to appeal to the diverse strata of the voting population.
