Considering the extent of the pandemic hitting the majority of the EU’s Eastern neighbours and exacerbating existing socio-economic problems and political grievances, the EaP leaderships find themselves under extreme pressure. The effectiveness of governments in combating the pandemic and its economic consequences may shape trajectories of the political regimes in the region in the near future, and not necessarily in a democratic direction.

On July 1, the “3 DCFTAs” Project, in cooperation with the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum and the Ukrainian Think Tanks Liaison Office in Brussels (UTTLOB) with the support of the International Renaissance Foundation is organising an online-webinar “Political Implications of the COVID-19 Pandemic for the Eastern Partnership Countries”.

Experts from six EU’s Eastern partners will evaluate the latest developments with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic in the region, and the impact it is having on the overall political environment within each country, some of whom are facing elections.

In particular, the following issues will be touched upon:

  • State of emergency & concerns for civil liberties
  • Governments’ handling the pandemic
  • Impact on political parties, civil society and media
  • Foreign policy orientations of leadership and populations
