The sixth conference in the Ukraine's Quest for Mature Nation Statehood roundtable Series will be held in Washington, D.C., September 27-29, 2005, under the title 'Ukraine's Transition To An Established National Identity' according to an announcement by the chairman of the conference's steering committee, Michael Sawkiw, Jr., President of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA).

The two-day conference, during the course of four regular sessions, will feature twelve topical panels, four focus sessions, two working lunches and a Conference reception.  The conference will be held at Washington's Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in the Pavilion Room.

The gathering will bring together key government and non-government representatives of Ukraine, the United States and several of Ukraine's neighbors as well as experts from academia to evaluate Ukraine's ability to develop a "firm center of gravity as a nation/state" and to define Ukraine's "distinct sense of place in global affairs", particularly in the aftermath of the historic Orange Revolution which took place in the fall of 2004, resulting in the election of Victor Yushchenko as president of Ukraine.

Over 70 speakers, a veritable Who's Who from the American, Ukrainian and European governmental, NGO and private sectors, have been invited to provide their insights regarding the domestic and foreign policies of Ukraine's current government and their impact on the development of a new global face for Ukraine.

Invited speakers include: Borys Tarasiuk, Ukraine's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Serhiy Teryokhin, Ukraine's Minister of Economy, Bronislav Geremek, member of the European Parliament, and Steven Hadley, U.S. National Security Advisor, according to information received by The Action Ukraine Report (AUR).
