Eastern Partnership Reflection Forum
The Politics of the Eastern Partnership. Looking Ahead to a New Decade of Challenges.
Austrian National Defence Academy
Stiftgasse 2a / Wien
An event organised in the framework of the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
The Eastern Partnership (EaP) was founded in 2009 by the European Union (EU) to strengthen its relations with interested partner countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine) and promote regional stability through trade agreements and democratic institution-building. But almost ten years of EaP have only produced mixed results, regardless of the growing interest shown by some partners for this policy framework. Human security, all in all, has hardly improved in most parts of the EU's Eastern neighbourhood. And dividing lines running across a region targeted by competing regional integration projects have not helped to strengthen European security.
