The Eastern Partnership project brings East and West closer to each other.

AEGEE (Association des États Généraux des Étudiants de l’Europe)  is one of Europe’s biggest interdisciplinary student organisations. As a non-governmental, politically independent, and non-profit organisation AEGEE is open to students and young people from all faculties and disciplines. Founded in 1985 in Paris, today AEGEE has grown to a Network of 13000 friends, present in 200 cities in 40 countries all over Europe.

The Eastern Partnership (EaP) is the European Union’s programme that is regarded as an Eastern dimension of the European Neighbourhood Policy. It is an EU framework for strengthening relations with countries of Eastern Europe and South Caucasus, namely Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. EaP aims at bringing closer partner countries to European standards by grounding the cooperation on values of democracy, rule of law, human rights, basic freedoms, market economy, sustainable development and good governance.
