Working Group 1


EaP CSF Working Group “Democracy, Human Rights, Good Governance and Stability” deals with the main issues on the agenda of EaP Thematic Platform 1 on Democracy, Good Governance and Stability. The group took the decision to add “human rights” to its title and suggested that the title of the Thematic Platform 1 also be changed. The WG1 is the largest group in terms of members.


Goals of the Working Group

  • human rights
