Niemann, Arne; de Wekker, Tessa: Normative power Europe? EU relations with Moldova. European Integration online Papers. 22.10.2010. 22.10.2010
This article analyses the extent to which the European Union (EU) constitutes a normative power in its relations with Moldova. ‘Normative power Europe’ is examined along three dimensions: (i) normative intent; (ii) normative process; and (iii) normative impact. Our empirical analysis focuses on two norms: democracy and good governance. In addition, we ask how ‘normatively’ the EU has acted regarding a solution to the Transnistrian conflict. On the basis of our three-dimensional framework, we find that EU normative power can be judged as only moderate in EU-Moldovan relations.
Alexandru Baltag, Associated Expert, APE: "Russian energetic weapon as an instrument of pressure and influence in former Soviet space (the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine)”. 06.07.2010
Ukraine and Republic of Moldova, which have not existed as independent states by the Soviet implosion, represented the European interface first of the Russian Empire and then of the Soviet Empire. In these circumstances, this territory, particularly the Ukrainian one, has the role of geopolitical pivot, because the existence of these states as independent by the Kremlin (independent in the strict sense of the word) contributes to Russia's geopolitical transformation. An eventual join of these two countries to the EU and NATO could push Russia in Asia in such a way that the relations between Russia and Europe will be related only to the economic and energetic domain. This fact is perceived as a threat for the Russian Federation, as long as it has played and plays a (geo)political and (geo)strategic role of dominance in Europe during the recent centuries.
Ratification of the Rome Statute of the International Penal Court: an imperative issue on Moldova’s European Integration Agenda 28.06.2010 Mihail Popşoi Associated Expert APE
To investigate the most heinous crimes of the twentieth century - genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, the international community has set up ad hoc tribunals such as the International Military Tribunals at Nuremberg and Tokyo, the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia. However, genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes remain a grim reality of the world today. Thus, on July 17, 1998, the Rome Diplomatic Conference adopted the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) with the aim of creating a permanent and competent international court designed to prosecute people who have committed the most heinous crimes known to humanity. Thereby, the International Criminal Court differs from the International Court of Justice, sometimes called the World Court, which settles disputes between governments. Rome Statute of the ICC entered into force on July 1, 2002 and the Court is fully operational, having its seat in Hague, the Netherlands. The treaty was welcomed and appreciated by governments, legal experts and civil society as the most significant achievement in international law since the adoption of United Nations Charter. In this way, the struggle for international justice has made a major breakthrough.

Moldova’s Uncertain Future, Europe Report N°175 17.08.2006
To access full text of this report please click here EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECCOMENDATIONSWith Romania’s expected entry into the European Union in 2007, the EU will share a border with Moldova, a weak state divided by conflict and plagued by corruption and organised crime. Moldova’s leadership has declared its desire to join the EU, but its commitment to European values is suspect, and efforts to resolve its dispute with the breakaway region of Transdniestria have failed to end a damaging stalemate that has persisted for fifteen years.
