"Five Years of Independent Ukraine": A HURI project

The fifth anniversary of Ukraine's independence is a historic milestone and a fitting occasion for commemoration, reflection and analysis of the path Ukraine has traveled since August 24, 1991. To mark this occasion, the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University (HURI) is planning over the next few months a number of special projects: seminars, conferences, symposia and publications.

Launching the HURI program on "Five Years of Independent Ukraine" is this two-part series in The Ukrainian Weekly. In this issue, HURI offers readers the following materials:

The forthcoming issue (August 25) will feature analytical discussions by HURI-affiliated scholars on such themes as politics, foreign relations and security, economics, culture and religion in Ukraine since independence, held in series of roundtables this summer.

These materials were prepared with the active participation of HURI faculty, associated scholars, students and staff. Their contribution is gratefully acknowledged.

- Lubomyr Hajda, associate director
