Roundtable XIII (Special Edition)

Ukraine’s ‘Report Card’ on the Eve of Parliamentary Elections


Sept 19-20, 2012


A 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.
