About the Partnership for Good Governance

The European Union and the Council of Europe are working together with Eastern Partnership countries* to promote stronger governance, rule of law and to improve the lives of citizens.

In 2014, they launched a common initiative, the Partnership for Good Governance programme for the Eastern Partnership countries. The programme provides support in the implementation of the countries’ domestic reforms to strengthen justicecounter economic crimepromote equality and non-discriminationadvance women’s access to justice and combat violence against women in line with European standards.

The Partnership for Good Governance was designed in close consultation with the European Union and the national stakeholders, in line with the Council of Europe’s country-specific Action Plans and the European Union's priorities for the Eastern Partnership region. The current phase of the programme, running from 2023 to 2027, builds upon the results and progress achieved under the previous phases: 2015-2018 and 2019-2022.

Progress in the implementation of the EU accession priorities is in focus for Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. The Partnership for Good Governance programme will continue supporting Armenia and Azerbaijan. Co-operation with Belarusian democratic forces and civil society may be organised as appropriate.
