Association Agreements Eastern Partnership

Posted by lotta

There are clear advantages to adopting the civil society perspective. This is a step towards greater ”ownership” of citizens` associations and society within the Eastern Partnership and contributes to ”social resilience”. Moreover, this inclusive comparative perspective provides space and a voice for citizens of EaP countries whose governments are not currently interested in further European integration. The Eastern Partnership is a specific eastern dimension of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP). Through the ENP, the EU is cooperating with its southern and eastern neighbours to achieve as close a political association as possible and as high a level of economic integration as possible. The full breakdown and the questionnaire and the sources underlying the Eastern Partnership 2017 index are The Eastern Partnership aims to strengthen the political association and economic integration of six partner countries in Eastern Europe and South America. South: Visa facilitation and readmission agreements promote the mobility of citizens of eastern partner countries by facilitating the issuance of visas and provide rules for the management of the return of irregular migrants through readmission agreements. The period covered by the 2017 index marked the first full years of visa-free agreements between the EU and Ukraine and Georgia, as well as the continued implementation of association agreements between the EU and Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine, including comprehensive and comprehensive free trade agreements. The Trade Policy Committee also advises and assists the Commission in negotiating and concluding trade agreements with EAP partner countries. The forum contributes to the implementation of flagship projects that control and facilitate democratic transition in the Eastern Partnership region and provides direct contributions and written advice and recommendations early in policy development, both in the Eastern Partnership and in the EU, conducts lobbying campaigns at critical times and oversees the implementation of commitments and agreements between the EU and partner countries under the Eastern Partnership. Starting in 2014, the Forum supported two key initiatives, including the Eastern Partnership Media Freedom Index and the Eastern Partnership Integration Index.

With regard to its lobbying activities to date, the forum has secured more funding for civil society from the Eastern Partnership and has contributed to the development of the EU roadmap for the Eastern Partnership Summit to be held in Vilnius in 2013.

It was a period of reflection on what was achieved and what we should then focus on. Overall thinking was mixed. Indeed, the Eastern Partnership – Association Agreements, Free Trade Agreements and Visa Waiver Regimes with the Three Main Countries (Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova) – has been successful.
