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.
