The Partnership for Good Governance (PGG) is a joint initiative of the European Union and the Council of Europe for strengthening good governance in the Eastern Partnership region*.
The Partnership for Good Governance provides tailor-made support to beneficiary countries to bring their legislation and practice closer to European standards in the fields of human rights, rule of law and democracy. It supports, in particular, the domestic reforms to strengthen justice, counter economic crime, promote equality and non-discrimination, advance women’s access to justice and combat violence against women.
Progress in the EU accession agenda is in focus for Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova, as are improved European perspectives for Georgia. The Partnership for Good Governance programme will also continue supporting Armenia and Azerbaijan and is also foreseen to support co-operation with Belarusian democratic forces and civil society.
On 27 February 2023, the Secretary General of the Council of Europe Marija Pejčinović Burić and the European Union Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Olivér Várhelyi have launched the co-operation Programme between the European Union and the Council of Europe “Partnership for Good Governance” (PGG) 2023-2027.
* While the Partnership for Good Governance does not include activities with the participation of the Belarusian authorities, in line with the EU policy of non-engagement with Belarusian public bodies and state-owned enterprises enshrined in the EU Council Conclusions of October 2020, activities may be organised with the representatives of Belarusian civil society and democratic actors as appropriate, in line with the European Council Conclusions of February 2022 and the Decision of the Council of Europe Ministers’ Deputies of March 2022.
