Civil Society Forum

Our Mission

Our mission is to ensure effective participation of civil societies of Eastern Partnership and the EU in the process of planning, monitoring and implementation of the Eastern Partnership policy in constructive dialogue with the EU and EaP decision-makers, in the direction of the democratic transformation and European integration of EaP.

At the national level, the EaP CSF aims to strengthen the diversity and plurality of public discourse and policy making in the Eastern Partnership countries by holding governments accountable and promoting fundamental freedoms, participatory democracy and human rights.

The EaP CSF achieves its objectives through:

  • implementing flagship projects that monitor and facilitate democratic transition in the Eastern Partnership region;
  • providing direct input and submission of written opinions and recommendations in the early stages of policy making both in the Eastern partners and the EU;
  • conducting advocacy campaigns at critical junctures;
  • monitoring the implementation of commitments and agreements made between the EU and the Partner countries within the framework of the Eastern Partnership.
