When we talk of Development Cooperation, it is usually understood to refer to the poor countries of Africa, Latin America and Asia. In fact, what is commonly referred to as the ‘Global South’ includes countries that are not confined to such neat geographical blocks, and the relationship between the EU and its Eastern neighbours is one example of how the EU tackles this.
Many NGOs from EU12 direct their development cooperation to countries in the Eastern Neighbourhood such as Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine and Belarus.
This briefing paper compiled by TRIALOG gives a comprehensive and compact overview on the European Neighbourhood Programme (ENP), the Eastern Partnership and the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum.
