Communicating the European vector in a period of political/financial crises and geopolitical interest in Moldova
The Foreign Policy Association has the pleasure to invite you to an experts workshop meant to discuss about the communication strategy during the implementation of the Association Agenda between the EU and Moldova.
Although it was largely acknowledged the lack of a clear communication strategy regarding Moldova’s European development pattern as well as the role of EU in modernizing the country no concrete steps were undertaken in order to overcome the challenges.
Thus, during the event we would like to raise the following issues:
- Identify the main institutional challenges and opportunities in promoting the European vector and the reforms foresee in the AA,
- Spot the challenges in the communication process (domestic and foreign factors, regional security crises, the EU institutional developments),
- Analyze the existing mechanism of communication (taking into account the main stakeholders the EU, Moldovan authorities and civil society),
- Provide recommendation.
The event will take place on Tuesday, 28 June, 2016 in the premises of the NATO Center situated on 2A Banulescu Bodoni Street.
Please confirm your participation to Victoria Bucataru at firstname.lastname@example.org.
