UH Center for Soviet Union in the Asia-Pacific Region [SUPAR] and Center for Russia in Asia [CeRA] was established in 1986 to recognize our past and present expertise on the subject of Russia in Asia. Directors were John J. Stephan (1986-88), Patricia Polansky (1988-92), and Robert Valliant (1992-2003). The main work of the Center was the SUPAR Report (later called the RA [Russia in Asia] Report, 1986-1994, 17 nos.), compiled and edited by Robert Valliant. This came out twice a year and contained abstracts from the Russian, Japanese and Asian press on the Soviet Union/Russia Federation’s dealings with each country in Asia. The Center ceased any official activities in 2000; the official date of closure was 2003.
