Observed trends in EaP countries and evolution of the EU’s policy

The very different results of the parliamentary elections in Belarus, Georgia and Ukraine show that Eastern Partnership countries are developing in different directions and the EU needs a differentiation of its policy in the Eastern Neighborhood. While Moldova and Georgia have a good progress in negotiating association with the EU, the prospects of signing the already initialed Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU remain questionable. Belarus lags far behind its Eastern Partnership neighbours and hardly benefits from the EU's cooperation instruments.
How far will Moldova be able to move closer to the EU, leaving Ukraine behind? What will be the fate of Georgian reforms under the new government? Are political trends in Ukraine getting more similar to those in Belarus? What should be the EU’s practical response?
International Renaissance Foundation and Ukrainian National Platform of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum organised the public discussion that bring together EU diplomats and independent experts from the EU, Ukraine and other Eastern Partnership countries.
