Abstract : On June 20-21, RAND, in conjunction with the Stiftung Wissensohaft und Politik in Ebenhausen (Germany), the Council on Defense and Foreign Policy in Moscow, and the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry in Kiev held two separate but related workshops dealing with security questions in the Newly Independent States (NIS) of the former Soviet Union. The first dealt with Russia's relations with the states of the NIS and the second focused on Ukraine's internal and external security. Several sessions were held jointly with the Russian and Ukrainian delegations. In addition, the American and German participants met with the Russian and Ukrainian delegations separately. The two workshops were attended by some 50 government officials and specialists from Russia, Ukraine, Germany and the United States. They were part of a series of RAND-sponsored workshops on security problems in Russia and the Newly Independent States (NIS) of the former Soviet Union designed to establish a broad dialogue between American policy-makers and the new democratic security elites in the region. These Conference Proceedings provide a summary of the highlights of the two June workshops. The summary is organized by themes and integrates comments made by participants during the two workshops. It is not intended to be a detailed account of the workshops. Rather it is designed to highlight the main issues raised during the two days of discussions in Ebenhausen.
