What is Euronest

The EURONEST Parliamentary Assembly is a parliamentary forum to promote political association and further economic integration between the European Union and the Eastern European Partners. Euronest is to contribute to the strengthening, development and visibility of the Eastern Partnership, as the institution responsible for parliamentary consultation, supervision and monitoring. 

Who takes part in Euronest?

The Euronest Parliamentary Assembly consists of the European Parliament delegation and the Eastern European Partners' (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) delegations. The EP delegates 60 members, the Eastern Partners 10 each.

Belarus for the time being does not take part in the Assembly's activities, due to political reasons. However, as the two components of the Assembly have agreed, its Members will be welcomed once political requirements will have been fulfilled.

How does Euronest work?

The Euronest Parliamentary Assembly includes the plenary, chaired by two Co-Presidents, the Bureau, four standing committees and two working groups.

How often does it meet?

The Euronest PA meets once a year, alternately in an Eastern European Partner country and on the premises of the European Parliament in one of its places of work (Brussels, Luxembourg or Strasbourg). The standing committees of the Euronest PA meet twice per year, also alternating, in principle, their meeting venues but one of their annual meetings has to take place in parallel with the plenary session. The working groups meet on occasional basis.

Which are the standing committees and the working groups?

Standing committees:

  • Committee on Political Affairs, Human Rights and Democracy;
  • Committee on Economic Integration, Legal Approximation and Convergence with EU Policies;
  • Committee on Energy Security;
  • Committee on Social Affairs, Education, Culture and Civil Society.

Working groups:

  • Working group on Belarus;
  • Working group on the Rules of Procedure.

How it came about?

The assembly was constituted on 3 May 2011 in Brussels. About the process that led to the creation of the Euronest PA you can find more in the History section.
