TRUMAN Index is a quantitative and qualitative assessment of Ukraine’s progress in bilateral relations with key foreign policy directions: the EU, the US, China and Russia. This quarterly journal tracks the changing dynamics of the relations. Starting from issue # 6, we also monitor the progress of Ukraine-NATO relations. Our analytical articles are written by independent experts based on their own observations and on many discussions with domestic and foreign diplomats, opinion leaders and officials.
TRUMAN Index monitors events in Ukraine’s foreign relations with each of these countries and offers an analysis of the way that each of these partners has been interacting with Ukraine during the reported period.
In addition to analyzing the quality of relations, every bilateral event is evaluated on a scale from -10 to +10. The total points for foreign policy in the given area is the sum of the values assigned to these bilaterally significant events during that quarter. The expert group bases the research on the Belarusian Institute for Strategic Studies' methodology, which developed a definite scale of estimation of events in foreign policy.
