THE EASTERN PARTNERSHIP AT THE TURN OF ITS TENTH ANNIVERSARY

In November 2017, Brussels hosted the fifth summit of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) since its emergence in 2009 in Prague. Over the last nine years, the EU’s Eastern policy has gone through ups and downs and recently resulted in another meeting of heads of states from the EU and EaP countries in the Belgian capital. The Brussels summit, as well as the policy itself, set off with high expectations, which were – for many – not met by the final declaration. Despite that, the Eastern Partnership has made a considerable progress and it is far from being doomed or forgotten at the turn of its tenth anniversary.
