Why Should the United States Care about Ukraine?

May 19, 2017 • 1:00 – 2:30 pm EDT

Please join us for an expert panel discussion on the challenges and opportunities for foreign assistance in Ukraine going forward. 

The United States and European Union have invested substantial time and money in Ukraine over the past quarter century. However, despite significant recent progress, Ukraine’s path has been one of fits and starts, and not a few fear that “reform fatigue” is setting in in Kyiv. 

Some notional discussion questions include: Is it possible for Western countries to provide assistance that helps counter the consistent problems presented by pervasive corruption, divided incentives, and other challenges? Are there other approaches that Western countries and institutions could try? How does Russian aggression change the equation?

Please note that your RSVP is NOT necessary should you be attending the virtual webcast.
