Eastern Partnership (EaP) is a joint EU policy which aims to deepen the economic integration and political association between the EU and Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. From this perspective, the network conducts various activities such as seminars, joint events, participates in regional conferences such as Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum Annual Assembly and is very much engaged in regular dialogue with decision-makers in the EU and EaP region. Forum Syd is the facilitator of the network which consists of over 25 Swedish civil society organisations working with the EaP region, be it in human rights, sustainable development and environment, to promote the rights of youths, empower women, LGBTI rights or in fostering democracy in the region.

If you would like to become a member of the network and take part in joint efforts to support the EaP countries, do not hesitate to contact us.
