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.

Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic Future: International Forum IV
Image
The “Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic Future” Forum series' fourth event was held at Kharkiv National University on June 23-24, 2009. The conference's first day brought together key international experts for a deliberation regarding the state of affairs in EU-Ukraine and NATO-Ukraine relations. Discussions also attempted to divine: the foreign policy agenda of the Obama administration vis a vis Ukraine; Canada's take on Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic ambitions; and the new role the EU may be ready to play in Ukraine's neighborhood with its “Eastern Partnership” initiative. Day two of the event witnessed intense/diverse public discussions about Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic Future involving Ukrainian governmental officials/diplomats and Kharkiv students. The event included five plenary sessions, two keynote sessions and two public debates to facilitate the proceedings. Over forty speakers addressed the event.
