2nd meeting of EU-Ukraine Civil Society Platform

Meeting - Belgium, Brussels

The 2nd meeting of the EU-Ukraine Civil Society Platform will take place on 11 February 2016 in EESC premises in Brussels. During the meeting, a debate will be held assessing the state of play in the implementation of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, and two reports, prepared by both sides, will be discussed and adopted – on energy policy and on the rule of law, with a focus on fight against corruption. A Joint Declaration will be adopted at the end of the meeting to be forwarded to the EU-Ukraine Association Council, the Association Committee, the Parliamentary Association Committee and other relevant bodies both in Ukraine as well as in the EU.


The EU-Ukraine Civil Society Platform, established in April 2015, complements the political bodies existing within the framework of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. It allows civil society organisations from both sides to monitor the implementation process from the point of view of civil society, and prepare its recommendations to the relevant authorities.


The Platform has 15 members on both sides. On the EU side, it is comprised of 9 EESC members and 6 observers from European civil society networks (Eurochambres, BusinessEurope, ETUC, Copa-Cogeca, Cooperatives Europe, EaP Civil Society Forum).
