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.
UA Historical Encounters—Taking Measure of the Holodomor
Image A Special UA Historical Encounters Series Event took place in NYC on November 5-6, 2013. The two day long conference, entitled: Taking Measure of the Holodomor, was held at three different venues: the Princeton University Club, the Ukrainian Museum and the Ukrainian Institute of America. Nearly 60 presenters, all well regarded either in the field of Holodomor Studies or Genocide Studies, took on the task of providing answers to the basic questions concerning the great Ukrainian Famine-Genocide of 1932-1933: why? how? where? who carried out, who suffered? how many suffered? etc.
