Multilateral Platforms

Platforms are the main tool of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) multilateral track. They reflect 4 main areas of cooperation between the Eastern Partner countries and the EU, namely:

  • Democracy, good governance and stability (platform 1);
  • Economic integration and convergence with EU policies (platform 2);
  • Energy security (platform 3) and
  • Contacts between people (platform 4).

Meetings are held at least twice a year at the level of senior officials engaged in the reform work in the relevant policy areas. The platforms report to the annual meetings of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the EaP. The work of the platforms may occasionally be promoted through sector-specific Ministerial meetings. Each platform can establish panels in order to support its work in specific areas.
