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-EU Relations
ImageRoundtable VIII: Ukraine-European Union Relations, took place on Oct 16 and 17, 2007 in Washington, D.C. The conference heard nearly seventy government and non-government speakers, a veritable Who's Who of policy shapers and policy makers with a deep and thorough knowledge of Ukraine's links to the EU, examine and evaluate Ukraine's capacity to "thrive alongside" its great Western neighbor as well as its readiness, if asked to join, to eventually "thrive inside" it.
