Project Meeting

Politics and economics of the DCFTA and Eurasian spaces


Implementation of the Association Agreements and DCFTAs is well underway in Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, albeit with some slippages of timetable and continuing more fundamental problems of governance. Building on the publication of three handbooks on the agreements, CEPS and its research partners will present their findings on ‘hot topics’ in the relationship between the EU and the three Eastern Partnership countries.
