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 and Religious Freedom
ImageIn 2015, the UA Quest RT Series returned to its tradition of numbered forums thematically done as trilogies and dedicated to examining overarching national issues (after having run a ‘situation driven’ trilogy in the 2012-2014 period). This year, on October 27, 2016, the UA Quest RT focused on Ukraine and Religious Freedom, the second of three explorations intended to assess UA’s ability to find its own version of ‘e pluribus unum.’
