Joint panel discussion by German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and the Representation of the European Commission in Germany.

The Republic of Moldova is stalled in its reform process and caught between the EU and Russia. The new president Igor Dodon even questions the effectiveness of the 2016 Association Agreement with the EU and openly argues for the alternative: joining the Eurasian Union. The EU is dismayed by the current state of reforms in Moldova but sees its own scope of action limited by the vested interests inside of Moldova and the geopolitical struggle with Russia. As this fundamental conflict with Russia on the common neighborhood becomes ever more entrenched, how can the EU adjust its Eastern Partnership to push for further reforms in Moldova?

Keynote speech:            

  • Andrian Candu, President of the Parliament of Moldova


  • Adriano Martins, Deputy Head of the Division for Eastern Partnership, European External Action Service


  • Stefan Meister, Head of Robert Bosch Center, DGAP

The event is organized by the Robert Bosch Center and will be held in English.
