Ukraine’s Implementation of 20 Eastern Partnership Deliverables for 2020
This is already the 3 rd edition of the annual monitoring being conducted by the Ukrainian National Platform of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum (UNP EaP CSF). Since 2017, the Platform’s experts analyse how Ukraine implements “20 Deliverables for 2020”, paying special attention to institutional and procedural changes as well as to the openness and inclusiveness of the process. The findings of the three annual probes into the 20 deliverables implementation in Ukraine provide a good analytical framework for assessing its progress, and not only under these deliverables per se but also sectorally.
Since the European Union does not require the national governments of the EaP countries to report officially and publicly on the implementation of the “20 Deliverables for 2020,” Ukrainian government institutions do not always present the results of the work they have done in this respect. This makes the monitoring report by the UNP EaP CSF the main alternative public report on Ukraine’s participation in the Eastern Partnership.
The monitoring format takes into account the approaches of the EU’s European External Action Service to how it conducts, and presents the findings of, its own study on the 20 deliverables implementation by partner countries. Therefore, our publication provides a good opportunity for comparing the Ukrainian track in the implementation to the EU’s general consolidated indicators on the six partner countries.
Finally, besides reporting on the monitoring, the Platform’s experts traditionally suggest their recommendations on how to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of realizing the 20 deliverables of the Eastern Partnership, adding one more practical dimension for institutions involved in decision-making.
In the context of this year’s EU consultations on the Eastern Partnership’s future beyond 2020, we additionally focused the current edition on suggestions aimed at strengthening cooperation between the European Union and the partner countries in the next medium term.Open pdf
