Effective Management of the EU Assistance by the Governments of the Eastern Partnership Countries

Effective Management of the EU Assistance by the Governments of the Eastern Partnership Countries

The seminar “Effective management of EU assistance by recipient governments of Eastern Partnership countries” is an event organized by the Estonian Centre of Eastern Partnership (ECEAP) in the framework of its involvement in the Public Administration Reform Panel under the EaP thematic Platform 1 “Democracy, Good Governance and Stability”. Likewise, the seminar is part of the preparation of the 2012 ECEAP annual comparative report “Public Administration Reform in the EU Eastern Partners”,1 which gives a systematic, comparable presentation of the public administration reform in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. The Public Administration Reform Panel, in its conclusions of 10 October 2011, requested updating the Panel participants on a regular basis on the results of the further research.

Following the recommendation of the Panel, and having regard to the Panel work plan for 2012-14, ECEAP laid focus of the 2012 comparative report on the “Effective management of the EU assistance by recipient governments”. The analysis will be based on the results of the survey conducted in March-May 2012. For the purpose of the survey, the ECEAP has created a network of partners from among civil society organisations, which are in charge of the survey in respective of the Eastern Partnership countries:

ü  Centre for the Development of Civil Society (CDCS, Armenia)

ü   Centre for Economic and Social Development (CESD, Azerbaijan)

ü   Belarusian Institute for Strategic Studies (BISS, Belarus)

ü  Georgian Foundation for Strategic and International Studies (GFSIS, Georgia)

ü  Institute for Development of Social Initiatives (IDIS Viitorul, Moldova)

ü  Razumkov Centre (Ukraine)

The purpose of the survey is to assess how effectively the governments of the EU Eastern Partners manage assistance rendered by the EU in the ENPI framework. The survey methodology is uniform for all 6 EaP countries. Its findings are expected to equip EaP governments and the European Commission with a comparative overview of best practices and challenges related to managing EU assistance and thus support the necessary policy measures both at the EU and national level.
