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.
Ukraine's 'Report Card' on the Eve of Parliamentary Elections
ImageA special edition UA Quest Special Edition RT: Ukraine's 'Report Card' on the Eve of Parliamentary Elections took place on Sept 19-20, 2012 in Washington, D.C. The conference fused the envisioned work of the first US-UA Leadership Summit with CUSUR's flagship UA Quest forum series to take measure of Ukraine's recent progress/regress in six categories: “robust democratic politics, developed market economics, viable social cohesion, ever greater energy security, ever greater general security and an established national identity". The forum's 'Pre Election Report Card' in its final and verified version is located below.
