The Ukrainian Studies Program at Columbia University will host a lunchtime lecture by Mr. Ilko Kucheriv, titled:

"EMBRACING EURO-ATLANTIC VALUES: NATO MEMBERSHIP AND THE FUTURE OF UKRAINE"

Mr. Kucheriv is the founder and director of the Kyiv-based Democratic Initiatives Foundation, a leading think tank that focuses on deepening democracy in Ukraine. Since its founding in 1992, Mr. Kucheriv and his institution have engaged in research and debates concerning public attitudes to political, social and economic issues. They have commissioned exit polls for major Ukrainian elections, including the 2004 presidential elections in which massive electoral fraud led to the Orange Revolution. Widely recognized as one of Ukraine’s most prominent nongovernmental activists, Mr. Kucheriv has been active in Ukrainian civil society for over twenty-five years. 

This event is free and open to the public.
