EPC European policy center

Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia are all part of the Eastern Partnership framework, and over the years, the EU has strengthened its security role in the region. 

The European Union Monitoring Mission (EUMM) in Georgia has been deployed since 2008. A Mission in Armenia (EUMA) was established early 2023, which contributes to maintaining security in conflict-affected areas and building confidence between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Additionally, the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, has been facilitating talks between the two countries towards a comprehensive peace treaty. 

This joint APRI Armenia-EPC online Policy Dialogue focused on the EU’s geopolitical significance in the region and the security challenges on the ground, including those concerning relations with Russia.
