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.

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.

UA Historical Encounters
The term Ukraine's Historical Encounters was coined in 1998, when Columbia University's Harriman Institute used it to title a "breakthrough" two day symposium that was tasked with exploring the long and troubled relations between Ukraine and its always imposing northern neighbor, Russia. A long and distinguished line of academics did precisely what was asked of them; they delved into the past, present and future to examine "the ties that bind, often too tightly". The end result of the endeavor was a well received monograph, containing the forum's highlight presentations, bearing the same appellation.

The term resurfaced as a title in 2003, when NYU's Center for Global Affairs ran a one day conference, in conjunction with CUSUR's predecessor—UCIS, which reassembled a number of the speaking participants of Ukraine's Quest for Mature Nation Statehood Roundtable II: Taking Measure of a U.S.-Ukraine Strategic Partnership [Nov 2001] and asked the gathering to update their assessment of relations between Ukraine and the world's "remaining superpower". The forum's frank discussions included a very serious give and take on the prevailing issue of common concern at the time: the War on Terror.

In 2004, the two Universities [CU's East Central European Center added its weight to the project at this juncture], through the good offices of UCIS, decided to combine their efforts under the stated moniker and launch a set of forums that would explore Ukraine's "past, present and future" ties with its various neighbors [both countries and regional associations].

The Ukraine's Historical Encounters Series has now held six such major events:


In addition, CUSUR has sponsored several special UA HES symposia dedicated to Ukraine's encounters with its own history:


2016 witnessed the running of another special gathering entitled UA HES SE: Commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Ukrainian Modern State.

During 2017, the HES Series intends to run two gatherings—a special events conference entitled UA HES SE: Ukraine's Century of Struggle for Independence in December and a regular 'encounter' forum entitled: UA Historical Encounters Forum VII: Lithuania-Poland-Ukraine at a time to be announced.
