This paper compares the three Association Agreements (AAs) and Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Areas (DCFTAs) that the EU has concluded with Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia. In particular, it explores the main differences in the ‘political’ and trade-related chapters and the provisions on legislative approximation. Whereas the scope and contents of these sets of agreements are very similar, some specific differences can be identified in view of the different political and economic priorities of the EU’s partner countries.

Guillaume Van der Loo is Researcher in the Europe in the World unit at CEPS. The research was carried out in the context of a research and policy advice project supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) on “Understanding the EU’s Association Agreements and Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Areas with Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia".
