Moldovan political context related to ENP







Strong political will of the Government for EU integration,
More than 70% of population opt for EU integration,
(according to the surveys),
Formally the Government is committed to the ENP
assignments,
The ENP format of cooperation is not satisfying the
internal aspirations related to European future of Moldova
Idealized vision regarding EU membership and lack of
neutral information for the society on the subject
The most important document under the ENP/ENPI is
considered EU-Moldova action plan
CSP is a not known paper in the country and is perceived
as something virtual

Workshop procedures and methodology (4)
Lessons learned


The subject of the workshop is very appropriate,
especially because it is the first initiative of the SC to
influence the EU policies
The EC in Moldova and the Government had an
immediate reaction on making their agreements public
The ENP/ENPI subject is an important one for the SC,
but more for informative reasons than for lobby on it
Is very problematic to mobilize the SC for concrete
actions around an unknown document and too broad
focus
The assumption that participant NGOs will study deeply
the documents sent to them preliminary is a risky one
Recommendations for the CSP (1)
GENERAL
 The CSP does not have visible connection
with the main country document- National
Development Strategy
 The chapters of the CSP have to be
reviewed and should be interlinked in a
coherent manner

tools have to be made clear
