CEPS commentary: “Moldova in 2015: A decisive year for its future”

CEPS Senior Research Fellow Erwan Fouéré has recently published a commentary detailing the challenges facing Moldova in the upcoming year. The paper analyses the government vacuum following the most recent parliamentary elections in the country and issues policy-recommendations to remedy its impact.

Among the challenges that the author notes are “long-standing internal rivalries, economic woes and the country’s unfortunate position in the middle of an intense geopolitical struggle between Russia and the EU.”

Mr. Fouéré’s central argument in the commentary pivots on the idea that the new government “will be able to move forward on a sound basis if it promotes a policy of consensus-building across the country, while involving civil society representatives and the business community, including from Transdniestria.”
