Through the Partnership for Good Goverance (PGG) the European Union and the Council of Europe are working together to strengthen governance in the Eastern Partnership region.

The programme has two successive phases: PGG I (2015-2018) and PGG II (2019-2021). Since 2017, PGG has mainly focused on providing legal expertise and technical assistance in the field of judiciary and fight against corruption to help Eastern Partnership countries effectively implement domestic reforms and to bring them closer to Council of Europe standards in these areas.

This is done through a variety of activities: legislative review, conferences, seminars, working groups, networking, and training sessions led by Council of Europe staff and international experts.

Through implementing key judicial reforms and fighting against corruption, Eastern Partnership countries will increase their citizens’ trust in the state, enhance  long term stability in the region and create an investment-safe climate.
