The Open Society Foundations have local offices in all of the Eastern Partnership countries except for Belarus, and many thematic programs working on human rights and governance. We believe that the EU's engagement, with a toolbox largely drawn from the enlargement policy, is the best framework for promoting political reform in these countries, particularly when it is coupled with clearly articulated conditionality.

This short assessment by the Open Society Foundations sets out the main lessons learned from our experience in the region and give ideas on how to enhance the EU’s efforts to strengthen prosperity, stability and security in its neighbourhood.
