Since its founding in 1959, the Institute for European Politics (IEP) has been a non-profit organization dedicated to the study of European integration.
EU Perceptions and Reality in Moldova (WE&EU)
Where: Republic of Moldova (Chișinău and regions) When: June 2019 — June 2020 Who: Representatives of civil society, ethnic minorities and local and national authorities
In 2014, the Republic of Moldova signed the Association Agreement with the European Union (EU), which officially launched the path of rapprochement with the EU. This pro-European decision is, however, not uncontested within the Moldovan population.
The project “EU Associations and Reality in Moldova (WE&EU)” therefore aims at opening up channels of communication to EU-critical parts of the Moldovan population in order to promote the discourse on fundamental European values and to render the concrete advantages of EU association for Moldova and its citizens more visible. In this endeavor it is essential to counter misinformation and address common myths about the EU and the Association Agreement and to promote a fact-based exchange.
In order to achieve this goal, the WE&EU project will implement various measures and activities, including the development of fact checks, dialogue events for citizens, videos on success stories, TV debates, EU awareness workshops, a study trip to Chisinau as well as public conferences.
