Initiated in 2003, the annual Stasiuk Lecture in Contemporary Ukrainian Studies explores the internal dynamics and international implications of events in today's Ukraine and features the foremost experts in the fields of Ukrainian politics, history, and society. 

The event is organized by Cambridge Ukrainian Studies with the support of the Cambridge Ukrainian Society. From 2003 to 2010, the lecture was generously supported by the Stasiuk Programme for Contemporary Ukrainian Studies at the University of Alberta. The name of the lecture honours this support and collaboration.
