The Eastern Partnership’s key deliverables compared with the Association Agreement provisions: what is the added value for the EU-Ukraine relations?
This analytical paper presents findings of an ex-pert study of each of 20 deliverables for 2020, suggested by the Joint Staff Working Document “Eastern Partnership – Focusing on Key Priorities and Tangible Results”, for their correlation with the AA. The study intended to answer the question on how much the EaP targets correlate with what the AA provides:
1.Duplicate AA provisions;
2.Supplement and elaborate on AA provisions;
3. Are additional targets, which are not explicitly envisaged by the AA; or
4.Offer a vision that is alternative to or in con-tradiction with what the AA provides.
A comparative analysis of the two instruments is also expected to answer another key question: whether the monitoring of results and targets needs any additional efforts that are not provided for by the AA Implementation Action Plans and the Association Agenda.
The text of this paper is structured following with the contents and presentation order of the 20 cross-cutting and sectoral deliverables as well as four key priority areas of the EaP.Download pdf (en)
