Overview

Ukraine emerged in 1991 as the second largest post-Soviet nation. Several steps were critical in realizing this final break from Russia and the Soviet Union, none more important than the December 1, 1991 referendum.  The population voted overwhelming for independence, thus providing the political foundation for this new country. The Belovezha Accords soon followed and with it, the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

Thirty years later after this consequential vote, we will gather four distinguished scholars from various disciplines – law, history, political science, and philosophy – to discuss Ukraine’s three decades of independence, its achievements in state-building, and what must still be achieved in the coming decade.
