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 2019 - 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.

From the Sponsors

The US-Ukrainian Security Dialogue Series intends to track the progress of Ukraine’s professed “Euro-Atlantic” ambitions in the realm of “security affairs”. The organizers hope to annually examine and evaluate, through the use of symposia on the Hill, Ukraine’s attempts to deepen “strategic” bilateral ties with the United States as well as monitor the pace of Ukraine’s NATO accession process.

A Special Note of Thanks to the Ukrainian American Freedom Foundation for its generous patronage of the event
