CUSUR 2016 - Project I
US-UA “Working Group” Initiative

The US-Ukraine “Working Group” Initiative was launched in 2007 in order to secure an array of experts in "areas of interest” for CUSUR and its various forums/proceedings; at the same time, it was hoped that the ‘experts’ might agree to write a series of ‘occasional papers’ to identify “major issues” impacting on US-Ukrainian relations.

CUSUR 2016 - Project II
Publication Efforts

Recognizing the urgent need to set up proper channels for the maximum circulation of the information/analysis CUSUR possessed or had at its disposal, the Center long focused on having ‘a publication presence’ of some form or another.

CUSUR 2016 - Project III
DC Occasional Briefings Series

CUSUR did not turn its attention to having a DC presence until summer 2012. Borrowing space when the need arose (particularly for various forum steering committees meetings) from the American Foreign Policy Council, its longest abiding partner, seemed to suffice; an Acela ride from the Center’s NY office did the rest. If there was a concern, it was to open an office in Kyiv.

CUSUR 2016 - Project IV
Kyiv Seminars for UA Officials

The several visits of young, fresh minded, reform oriented UA military commanders and national security analysts to various top flight foreign policy think tanks and institutes of higher diplomatic or military learning in DC (prompted in good part by CUSUR invitations to its Occasional Briefings) in the latter part of 2014 prompted the UA MOD to propose a slightly different arrangement for similar discussions/conversations in 2015.

A seventh running of the US-UA Security Dialogue will happen on February 25, 2016 on the Hill. AFCU, CUSUR, the Jamestown Foundation and the Potomac Foundation plan to bring together a select number of senior defense officials and experts to engage a seminal discussion entitled: Taking New Measure of Russia’s ‘Near Abroad’: Assessing Security Challenges Facing the ‘Frontline States’. A preliminary program is now available. For details please contact us.



An UA HES Special Event entitled: 'Za Samostinist: Ukraine's Century of Struggle' is contemplated for mid Spring 2016 in Cambridge MA at Harvard University's Davis Center. The gathering will take an effort to do a historical and comparative political/social analysis of Ukraine’s various movements for national liberation in the 20th & early 21st centuries, starting with the Union for the Liberation of Ukraine and ending with the Euro-Maidan phenomenon. A preliminary program is now available. For details please contact us.



A US-UA WG Yearly Summit gathering wlll again serve to provide Ukraine with an assessment of its performance in six areas of ‘nation building’. The event, the fourth of its kind and co-sponsored by all of CUSUR’s institutional partners, will take place in the Washington Club of Washington DC on June 19, 2016. A preliminary program is now available. For details please contact us.



A sixth running of the US-UA Energy Dialogue is planned for late August 2016 on the premises of UA American Chamber of Commerce in Kyiv. CUSUR and Am-Cham Ukraine will be joined by the AFPC and the Kyiv International Energy Club to divine the state of energy resources exploration, production and distribution in Ukraine (in the midst of its protracted standoff with RU). A preliminary program will be available soon. For details please contact us.



In 2015, the UA Quest RT Series returned to its tradition of numbered forums thematically done as trilogies and dedicated to examining overarching national issues (after having run a ‘situation driven’ trilogy in the 2012-2014 period). This year (October 2016), the UA Quest RT will focus on Ukraine and Religious Freedom, the second of three explorations intended to assess UA’s ability to find its own version of ‘e pluribus unum.’ A preliminary program is now available. For details please contact us.



In late fall 2016, the Center intends to team up with Dentons NYC to run a business gathering that will focus on assessing the efficacy of Ukraine’s economic reform efforts after two years of governance by Euro-Maidan forces and studying carefully the sectors that stand the best changes of quickly re-establishing a serious presence in world markets. A preliminary program is now available. For details please contact us.
