About the project

A project «Implementation of the EU-Ukraine Association Agenda: expertsview» is a civil society monitoring of EU’s and Ukraine’s implementation of the Association Agenda, the key document in their bilateral relations.

The project implemented by a consortium of Ukrainian think tanks, including The Ukrainian Centre for Independent Political Research, The Institute for Economic Research and Policy Consulting and The Centre for Political and Legal Reforms. The media support is provided by the international NGO "Internews Ukraine".

The project is supported by the International Renaissance Foundation.

It is implemented in co-operation with the Civil Society Expert Council under the Ukrainian section of the EU-Ukraine Cooperation Committee, as well as with the working group on Environmental EU integration, that has monitored and analyzed the “Environment” segment of AA’s priorities. The monitoring involves in total more than 30 experts of the Ukrainian NGO think tanks.

EU-Ukraine Association Agenda (AA) is a key document regulating EU-Ukraine relations before the new Association Agreement is signed and enters into force. The Association Agenda outlines key priorities of reforms that Ukraine needs to implement to fully use the opportunities provided by the deepened cooperation with the EU. The practical aim of the Association Agenda is to clearly define priorities requiring urgent action before signature of the Association Agreement. 

Since its launch in May, 2010, the project has prepared two interim monitoring reports :

1st monitoring report (March-June 2010)
2nd monitoring report (July-October, 2010)
