German-American Dialogue on the Post-Soviet Space (DADPOSO)

Assessing the State of European Integration and Potential for Transat­lantic Cooper­ation – the Case of Moldova

Germany and the United States are facing similar, still unresolved challenges in the post-soviet space, such as the ongoing crisis and conflicts in Ukraine or the growing political insta­bility in the Republic of Moldova. The new project: “German-American Dialogue on the Post-Soviet Space: Assessing the State of European Integration and Potential for Transat­lantic Cooper­ation – the Case of Moldova” seeks to foster a transat­lantic dialogue on the post-soviet space and is imple­mented in co-operation with the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF).

The project aims at reviewing policies and instru­ments of Germany, in the framework of the European Neigh­bourhood Policy and the Eastern Partnership and those of the U.S. with respect to their capacity to support trans­for­mation processes in the post-soviet space. It seeks to create synergies between German and American approaches to the region and to identify the specific domestic obstacles to trans­for­mation within the countries of the post-soviet space.

Within a series of four dialogue workshops, to be held in Berlin and Washington, the exchange between repre­sen­ta­tives from the U.S., Germany and other European countries and the target countries of the Eastern Partnership will be promoted. The results of each dialogue workshop will be published within a review-document.

The German-American Dialogue is funded by the Transat­lantic Program of the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany.
