On 24 November 2017, Brussels hosted the fifth summit of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) since its emergence in 2009 in Prague.
“Over the last eight years, the EU’s eastern policy has gone through ups and downs and recently resulted in another high-level 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 of 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 in the years to come,” examines Pavel Havlíček EU Eastern neighbourhood policy.
The publication of the paper was supported by the NATO Public Diplomacy Division and the U.S. Embassy Prague and published as a background material for the international conference The Future of EU’s Eastern Neighbourhood: Political and Security Update.
