The Eastern Partnership after Vilnius: what next?

11 December 2013

The EU Institute for Security Studies organised a closed brainstorming session entitled ‘The Eastern Partnership after Vilnius: what next?’ in Brussels on 11 December 2013.

The Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius was intended as the culmination of a nearly decade-long process undertaken as part of the European Neighbourhood Policy that has resulted in the negotiation of Association Agreements with several of the EU’s Eastern neighbours. However, many challenges remain. The focus of this meeting was on lessons learned, possible post-Vilnius scenarios and possible changes in approach the EU could adopt.

This off-the-record brainstorming session brought together representatives from the EEAS, European Commission, Council of the EU, Permanent Representations of the EU Member States and a few selected experts.
