The Eastern Partnership Reality Check is a policy review process aiming to gather insights from top domestic and international analysts, practitioners, diplomats and policy-makers covering Eastern Partnership countries in order to discuss these behind closed doors. It has the ambition to satisfy demand for a more in-depth policy in this area. Under the aegis of Lithuania’s EU Presidency (July-December 2013) the first such a review was the Belarus Reality Check (BRC) enacted in Vilnius, Lithuania October 2012. The Reality Checks are now held under the aegis of the upcoming Latvia’s EU Presidency (January-June 2015).
The 3rd Ukraine Reality Check to be held in Riga, Latvia is comprised of top Ukrainian and international analysts, observers and practitioners to achieve evidence and ground based analysis as well as balanced policy advice. The upcoming meeting will focus on situation in Eastern Ukraine, politics after the Minsk II agreement, economic trends and the results of Ukraine’s key reforms.
