Rethinking and Reshaping the EU's Democracy Support

Within the SHAPEDEM-EU project, EaP CSF brings the perspective of the civil society from the Eastern Neighbourhood, recalling the importance of listening to local voices in the attempt to analyse and rethink the policies and practices of EU democracy support in the region. Through its diverse membership and expertise, EaP CSF aims at bridging the gap between academic and institutional discourses on democracy and democracy support with concrete examples of activism, advocacy campaigns, and bottom-up initiatives that contribute to democracy and democratisation.

Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum

The Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum (EaP CSF) is a unique multi-layered regional civil society platform aimed at promoting European integration, facilitating reforms and democratic transformations in the six Eastern Partnership countries – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. Serving as the civil society and people-to-people dimension of the Eastern Partnership, the EaP CSF strives to strengthen civil society in the region, boost pluralism in public discourse and policy making by promoting participatory democracy and fundamental freedoms. EaP CSF is a non-profit, non-government, non-partisan civil society organisation.
