How Do You Take This 2 Advance?

You and your partner (a strong player) have agreed that one-level overcalls are at least moderate and that two-level non-jump overcalls are sound, with both requirements tempered by vulnerability.

With both sides vulnerable at matchpoints, West deals and opens 1, North (partner) passes, East bids 2 (explained as a weak raise), and you (South) overcall 2. West passes, and North makes a 2 advance, which is undiscussed.

 

How do you take partner's 2 bid?

If East were to now pass (as shown in the bidding diagram), how would you proceed holding various hands?
