The project is created for the American and Ukrainian policymakers who impact the relations of the United States with Ukraine. It will help them develop better policies with the Ukrainian interests, people, and their issues in mind, together with the American interests and opportunities.
It will involve the Ukrainian and American diplomats, experts, business people, media, and politicians to ensure that the main messages and ideas of that project are heard.
The PCUUS is created with the American interests of democracy promotion and democratic transformation globally. It will also be helpful for the Ukrainian political and diplomatic bodies to fully understand the American interest in Ukraine and the region as a whole with the Ukrainian interests in mind. Such mutual understanding and resonance with the global context will definitely positively impact Ukrainian-American relations.

FOURTRACKS OFWORK

GLOBAL TRACK

Global cooperation is also vital for both the U.S. and Ukraine, especially in battling current global issues, such as climate change, human rights protection, equality, etc. The gap between these two states is visible in such things, but none of these states is perfect, and true cooperation in that field can genuinely make the world a better place and strengthen Ukrainian-American relations.

BILATERAL TRACK

This track is representing the core of the political cooperation between Ukraine and the United States. The exceptional circumstances shaped this level in two main directions: security cooperation and energy cooperation. Ukraine needs the American experience and knowledge in these two fields mostly. 

REGIONAL TRACK

Ukrainian people chose their path to the Western world and mentality by the democratic procedures. That is why the U.S. has to be more active in the resolution of these two issues, but not in an overwhelming way. Despite that, that participation has to be cautious enough not to escalate the conflicts to the global level, especially in such an intense world of intense relations between the superpowers. The Ukrainian integration to NATO now is also intertwined with the aforementioned issues. The management of the Crimea Annexation and Donbas Conflict is also mainly on that track.

TRACK OF PUBLIC DIPLOMACY

Public diplomacy helps lift other bilateral relations levels to the new highs and fills possible gaps in different elements in the relations between Ukraine and the United States. That track ensures better activation and communication between the political establishment and leaders, diplomats, consulate workers, media, and Ukrainian and American nations. The activities on that track touch all of the aforementioned groups and audiences by offering different formats and tools to achieve that goal.
