The Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum (EaP CSF) is a community of nongovernmental organisations with over 1000 members. It was established in 2009 following the Prague Summit launching the Eastern Partnership (EaP) policy and is open to bona fide non-governmental organisations from the six partner countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine), as well as to EU member state CSOs which share the objectives of the Forum. The Forum aims to support the further development of civil society organisations, and to promote contacts between them as well as facilitate their dialogue with public authorities, joint advocacy and participation in EaP policy-making and implementation. The Forum is an integral part of the Eastern Partnership architecture and represents the people to people dimension of the EaP, which forms the Eastern dimension of the European Neighbourhood Policy. More about the Forum and its statutory documents can be found here.
