APE/BST. 25.05.2015. // Analyses]]> http://www.ape.md/libview.php?l=en&idc=152&id=2237 Moldova supports the ENP as a general policy framework for its members, nevertheless, it is pledging for a clear cut distinction between ENP’s South and East dimensions, between the Eastern Partnership and the Mediterranean Union, between the European and non-European neighbours of the EU. Moreover, past five year have shown that even the Eastern Partnership is not a monolithic group of countries, on the contrary, its members have different level of ambitions when it comes to the scope and depth of their domestic reforms and their relationships with the EU. Therefore, Moldova is pledging strongly for a deeper differentiation including between the Eastern Partnership countries. In its view, the countries that have the will and determination to develop political association and economic integration relations with the EU, through implementing far-reaching democratic and economic reforms, should enjoy a clear cut European membership perspective.]]> 25.05.2015 00:00 Trends of Eastern Partnership, Survey on Post-Vilnius Eastern Partnership, Visegrad Fund project <![CDATA[27.04.2015 10:21 Trends of Eastern Partnership, Survey on Post-Vilnius Eastern Partnership, Visegrad Fund project // Studies]]> http://www.ape.md/libview.php?l=en&idc=156&id=2221 27.04.2015 10:21 Corneliu Ciurea: The Neutrality of the Republic of Moldova in the Light of Ukraine’s Security Policy.

APE/NED. // Analyses]]> http://www.ape.md/libview.php?l=en&idc=152&id=2214 Unlike Republic of Moldova, Ukraine never anchored the principle of neutrality in its Constitution, although it announced this intention in the 1990 Declaration of Independence. Ukraine’s experience in terms of neutrality is only limited to the period of 2010-2014, when Kiev passed a law regarding Ukraine’s non-adherence to military blocs – so called non-bloc status. After repealing of this law, Ukraine comes back to the idea of adherence to NATO, even though there is hardly any possibility for this idea to become reality in the near future, due to the war in the region. Observing Kiev’s fluctuations between a country with a neutrality status and the desire to come under the Western security umbrella, the Chisinau Government could draw some conclusions related to the functionality of the neutrality principle enshrined in Article 11 of the Constitution.]]> 30.03.2015 13:18 Corneliu Ciurea: Comparative analysis of options for assurance of national security of the Republic of Moldova in the Context of Russian aggression in Ukraine.

APE/FEE. // Studies]]> http://www.ape.md/libview.php?l=en&idc=156&id=2210 In this paper we will debate the main trends that revolve around this major cleavage - neutrality versus accession to NATO- in terms of the consequences of the Ukrainian crisis on Moldova. In our opinion, in this situation the idea of neutrality increasingly loses its sense. Moreover, the disappearance of previously accepted rules turns the neutrality into an almost hollow concept. However, the paradox of security insurance makes, despite continued erosion of its contents, neutralityto remain an indispensable concept from the view of necessity to reduce the risks. Any guidance in other direction, would lead to an unjustified increase of risks and threats for the Republic of Moldova.]]> 25.03.2015 08:49 APE Activity Report - 2014 <![CDATA[25.02.2015 15:57 APE Activity Report - 2014 // Activity Reports]]> http://www.ape.md/libview.php?l=en&idc=274&id=2203 25.02.2015 15:57 APE Financial Report 2014 <![CDATA[25.02.2015 00:00 APE Financial Report 2014 // Activity Reports]]> http://www.ape.md/libview.php?l=en&idc=274&id=2202 25.02.2015 00:00 EU budget support to Eastern Partnership Countries: Cases of Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine.
