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.
Compelling Bilateral Ties/US-Ukraine & Canada-Ukraine
ImageUA Quest Roundtable X: Compelling Bilateral Ties/US-Ukraine & Canada-Ukraine took place on October 21 and 22, 2009 in Washington, D.C. The 10th anniversary conference was be first in a new trilogy of forums—a set of discussions dedicated to exploring Ukraine's historically most compelling bilateral relationships, namely, those that carry deep strategic significance and powerful cultural/historical meaning for Ukraine.
