Summary/Abstract: The major event for the European course of Moldova was the launch of negotiations on the Association Agreement between Moldova and the EU. In the context of the Association Agreement the release of a dialogue on three thematically oriented processes has been initiated. These processes include the liberalization of visa regime, creation of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area, as well as the structured dialogue on human rights. According to the author, Moldova could be the success story that is needed to give viability and credibility of the Eastern Partnership. This explains Brussels’ openness to Chisinau in the case of a dialogue on visa liberalization. However, additional efforts are expected from Moldova in terms of ensuring document security, combating illegal migration, improving border management, as well as developing and implementing asylum policies.
