On December 15th, the European Union will host the Eastern Partnership Summit in Brussels – the first in-person summit since 2019. The Summit aims to focus on five priority areas – economy, governance, the environment, digital and society.

In this episode of Talk Eastern Europe, Maciek sits down with three experts from the Eastern Partnership’s Civil Society Forum to discuss their expectations for the Summit and how civil society plays a key role in the development of the Eastern Partnership. They also discuss their latest position paper which addresses the EU’s post-2020 priorities for the initiative.

Guests: Vera Rihackova Pachta, Interim Director of the EaP CSF; Sofia Strive, ForumCiv (Sweden) Co-Chair of the EaP CSF; and Tatiana Poshevalova, Centre for Social Innovations (Belarus) and member of the EaP CSF Steering Committee.
