Civil Society Forum

EaP CSF – “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 organization.”

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.

The current Strategy of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum covers the 2018-2020 period and is logical continuation of the Strategy of the EaP CSF for 2015-2017 and the preceding Concept paper “EaP CSF – An Active Partner in Democratic Transition and European Integration”.

The Eastern Partnership (EaP) is a policy initiative that aims to bring the six Eastern neighbours – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine – closer to the EU.  It represents the Eastern dimension of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) reviewed in 2015 and strengthens bilateral relations between the EU and its partners.
