Together for a European Future - CSF Assembly 2013

Together for a European Future – 5th Annual assembly of the EaP Civil Society Forum, 4-5 October 2013 in Chisinau, Moldova

More than 250 representatives of the civil society organisations from six EaP partner countries and the EU, government representatives, European institutions and donor agencies met in Chisinau to discuss the priorities of civil society and its contribution to the reform process within the EaP. 

The Forum meets once a year to take stock of ongoing work and to agree on future activities. In 2013 the general assembly focused on the role of civil society in the context of Association Agreements that may be signed/initiated with several of the EaP countries and civil society assessment of the reform process in the EaP region in advance of the EaP Summit in Vilnius.

During parallel sessions Forum delegates also conducted debates on some of the priorities of the EaP thematic platforms and panels and the Forum’s flagship initiatives on election, media freedom and anti-corruption.

It is a tradition that Commissioner Stefan Füle opened the Forum with his welcome speech.
