MIDEU Paper published: “Strengthening Social Cohesion and a Common Identity in the Republic of Moldova”

The paper discusses the current situation of ethnic commu­nities in Moldova, analyses the major challenges that hinder the emergence of a common identity and presents practical recom­men­da­tions to address these issues.

Based on the results of a quali­tative study, conducted in the framework of the MIDEU project, the paper attempts to generate a constructive discussion about a possible integra­tionist model of society, which could emerge around the concept of a “civic identity”. Such a “civic identity” would be based on equal rights and oppor­tu­nities for all citizens and a common state-building and insti­tu­tional modern­ization programme, and would thus increase loyalty to the Republic of Moldova among its citizens.

The project “Strength­ening the National Identity in Moldova within the EU associ­ation process (MIDEU)” is imple­mented by the Institut für Europäische Politik (IEP) and its Moldovan partners the Institute for Strategic Initia­tives (IPIS) and the Institute for European Policies and Reforms (IPRE), and kindly supported by the German Federal Foreign Office.
