New Eastern Partnership Report: Voices from Civil SocietyPublished: Dec 9, 2021 Reading time: 1 minute
Since its inception in 2009, the Eastern Partnership (EaP) initiative has offered an important roadmap for reform and closer integration with the European Union (EU) for six of its eastern neighbors: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.
However, in recent years, the EaP brand has been increasingly facing an identity crisis. A common approach, which was initially the basis of the program, is no longer applicable.
Engaging over 250 civil society and youth representatives from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, People in Need’s latest report examines the current state of the countries’ relations with the EU and provides sets of recommended priorities for the way forward.
