10 April 2019

The Eastern Partnership was established in May 2009 thanks to an initiative by Poland and Sweden. Ten years since its founding is therefore a good moment to sum up the partner countries’ views of this policy and to analyse the direction in which this programme should develop. This report’s purpose is to formulate proposals on how the EU can develop its relations with the EaP countries in the medium and long term. The recommendations were developed based on the analysis of the partner countries’ expectations, as well as political restrictions within the EU. The possibilities of using EU integration models involving third countries, such as Turkey (customs union) or Norway in the scope of the European Economic Area (EEA), were also analysed. The experience of the Western Balkans in integration with the Union was also an inspiration for the presented proposals.
