This Handbook, now in its second edition, represents the most comprehensive and independent assessment of the Association Agreement and Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) between the Moldova. It is one of a Trilogy of Handbooks, alongside comparable publications on Georgia and Ukraine.
The signing of this agreement in 2014 was an act of strategic geo-political significance. Of all the EU’s Eastern neighbours, Moldova is objectively the most European on several accounts, including sharing a common history, language, culture and border with an EU member state, namely Romania. These factors provide a positive foundation for a successful integration with the EU, notwithstanding major political challenges that the country currently experiences. The Handbook details these challenges in operational detail.
