The Eastern Partnership a decade on: looking back, thinking ahead


Ten years after the launch of the Eastern Partnership (EaP), this Chaillot Paper looks back on its evolution, unveils shifting attitudes towards the EaP programme and provides analyses of both the successes and failures experienced in the six partner states.

Furthermore, it examines how the present and future trajectories of these states are being influenced and shaped by powerful regional and global megatrends. These countries are actively shaping their own futures and also developing in different, distinctive directions. Finally, the paper suggests ways in which the EaP could be adapted to fend off regional challenges and take advantage of rising opportunities in the coming decade.
