About the EPP:
The ECMI EASTERN PARTNERSHIP PROGRAMME (EPP) addressed Belarus, Moldova, and Ukraine – countries that face various challenges but also have numerous achievements in the accommodation and governance of their ethnic and linguistic diversity. The 3-year programme was implemented from 2014 to 2017, funded by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Read more about the EPP at: www.ecmi-epp.org
