Our colleagues Foreign Policy Council “Ukrainian Prism” (member of WG1 UNP) and expert team at Civic EaP Tracker has just released a thematic brief on the implementation of one of the key Eastern Partnership priorities “Together for accountable institutions, the rule of law, and security.”

This brief analyzes how the EU is supporting reforms in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine with a focus on building effective and resilient states in the face of global turbulence.

We collected data on statements by European officials, official conclusions, and support mechanisms established to help partner countries. The analysis covers all the important events of 2022 in this context.

Report on the Eastern Partnership Civic Tracker.

✅ In matters of reliable institutions, the rule of law and the security of citizens, all the countries of the Eastern Partnership have had a different pace of reforms and achievements in recent years. At the same time, in none of the cases all the most important qualitative transformations have been implemented in each of the states.

✅ In the justice domain, the most extensive reforms have been implemented in recent years in Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine

✅ Ukraine and, to a lesser extent, Georgia have made the most noticeable progress in the field of proper public administration in recent years.

✅ Cooperation with the EU has played a significant role in improving the system of preventing and fighting corruption in Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, Ukraine and, to a lesser extent, in Armenia.

✅ In the domain of security, the main challenge for all Eastern Partnership countries remains protection from external threats and the creation of conditions for sustainable peace.
