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 2017 - 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 2018 - 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.

PAUCI Advocates Ukraine in the USA

On March 1 and 2, 2006, PAUCI Foundation co-funded two conferences aimed to promote further democratization and development in Ukraine. These conferences took place in New York, USA.

The first conference, From the Baltic to the Black to the Caspian - Building a “Community of Democratic Choice [CDC]” took place at the Torch Club Forum at New York University. The event featured an expert discussion on the establishment of “The Community of Democratic Choice” initiated by Ukraine and Georgia in order to unite the countries of the Baltic-Black Sea-Caspian Region.

Oleg Shamshur, newly-appointed Ambassador of Ukraine to the US, Jan Pieklo, PAUCI Foundation Executive Director and David Soumbadze, Deputy of the Mission of Georgia in the US, addressed challenges faced and tasks to be solved while establishing this new organization.

These experts agreed that the “Community of Democratic Choice” could make a significant contribution to security in the region, particularly on issues related to energy, while adding that the work of the organization should focus on the promotion of basic democratic principles in Eastern Europe. They emphasized that the organization could be particularly effective with the support of the United States and the European Union, which are also interested in energy security in the region. Participants noted the lack of attention paid to the possible role of the CDC in this matter by the Western powers.

The second conference, Visegrad-Ukraine: A Multi-Relational Perspective, which took place at Columbia University, focused on relations between Ukraine and the countries of the Visegrad Group. The dialogue touched on several topics including diplomatic relations, military and energy security and economic and regional cooperation.

Experts and diplomats from Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Great Britain and the US underlined the importance of diversifying energy carriers to Europe and the need to elaborate a common strategy for energy security for members of the European Union and their neighbors. As the main gas transit country for Russian gas supplies, Ukraine was the focus of this discussion.

The experts also addressed the inclusion of representatives from Georgia and Moldova in the elaboration of such an energy strategy.

These conferences were supported by Columbia University, New York University, The Center for US-Ukrainian Relations, PAUCI Foundation, Organization for the Defense of Four Freedoms for Ukraine, The Heritage Foundation and The MB Financial and Self-Reliance (NY) Federal Credit Union.
