Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic Future International Forum Series

The origins of the Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic Future International Forum Series can be traced to the gratifying, often exhilarating, work that the all the various sponsors and patrons have done together during the last decade organizing the Ukraine’s Quest for Mature Nation Statehood Roundtable Series.

In late 2006, the UA Quest RTS organizers decided to harness the generated momentum and channel it into a new, internationally based discussion series about the single most critical issue facing Ukraine today—i.e., its Euro-Atlantic Future—that would begin June (2007) in Kyiv, Ukraine’s gold domed capital.

The anticipated first gathering, the Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic Future International Forum I was held in Kyiv, at the Diplomatic Academy of Ukraine, on June 11-13 2007. More that 80 government and non-governmental representatives from among Ukraine’s neighbors and partners, including the Czech Republic, Denmark, Norway, Lithuania, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, the Slovak Republic, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States, spoke at the three day conference. Nearly 320 interested individuals registered to be participants in the event.

Seeing the interest shown in the inaugural event, the organizers decided to chance running three events a year: one in Washington, a second in Ukraine [Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv, Donetsk] and a final annual gathering in one of the various capitals of Europe [Berlin, Warsaw, Brussels, London, Paris] with Ottawa as a possible candidate as well; the first would remain under the Quest name and the last two would carry the new Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic Future moniker.

Seven UEAF symposia have now been held, including a long-promised UEAF forum in Canada:

In 2013 (September 23), the UEAF Forum held a joint event with the UA Quest RT Series focusing on  Divining the Outcome of the [November] EP Summit in Vilnius.
