The new relationship between Ukraine and the European Union is the focus of this accessible, non-technical short guide. This relationship is based on a complex treaty: an Association Agreement with extensive political, economic and legal content, signed and entering into force provisionally in 2014 (in 2016 for a trade part). The Agreement includes a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA).

This booklet is a summary of a longer Handbook entitled Deepening Ukraine-EU Relations – What, why and how?, which explains the contents of the treaty in much greater depth. The Handbook, like the present booklet, is freely available at www.3dcftas.eu in both English and Ukrainian. Both publications follow the same chapter structure, which allows readers who wish to dig deeper into the subject to readily find their way in the longer Handbook.

This short guide is produced as part of a project supported by the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) and is one of a trilogy, with comparable companion texts also published on Georgia and Moldova. For more information on the project, see http://www.3dcftas.eu

Michael Emerson is Associate Senior Research Fellow at CEPS, and Veronika Movchan is Academic Director and Head of the Centre for Economic Studies at the Institute for Economic Research and Policy Consulting (IER) in Kyiv.
