Senior management[edit]


The Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) was founded in 1990 as a research center of the Sociological Association of Ukraine. In 1992, a partnership was established with the Paragon Research International and thus the research center became a Ukrainian-American research company under the name of KIIS. In 1995, KIIS joined ESOMAR (European Society for Opinion and Marketing Research).
