U.S. Policy on Ukraine: Challenges and Opportunities

The U.S. Policy on Ukraine: Challenges and Opportunities report aims to provide readers with a detailed, nuanced view of U.S. policy toward Ukraine and to start a discussion of how to maximize policy effectiveness. We wrote Part I to be a primer on Ukraine and on U.S. policy toward Ukraine, and we asked Ukrainian and American experts to write the sections of Part II, which take a deeper dive into specific policy issues. This report was prepared to help spark and facilitate discussions about why Ukraine matters to the U.S., what the impediments are to Ukraine’s political and economic stability, and what can be done to ameliorate the humanitarian crisis ensuing from the Donbas War.
