Three Eastern Partnership neighbours in the South Caucasus

The EU’s Eastern Partnership policy, adopted in 2009, covers six post-Soviet states: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. It was created to support political, social and economic reform efforts in these countries with the aim of increasing democratisation and good governance, energy security, environmental protection, and economic and social development. All the members (except Belarus whose membership is suspended) are part of the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly.

Central Asia

01-01-2018

The EU’s 2007 Central Asia strategy was last reviewed in 2015. It aims to achieve stability and prosperity, while promoting open societies, the rule of law, democratisation, and cooperation on energy security and diversification. Parliament has highlighted the importance of human rights, good governance and social development. Levels of development and democratisation in the region vary greatly and the EU tailors its approach accordingly. A proposal for a new strategy is expected by mid-2019.
