Between neutrality and reform: Moldovas bid towards EU integration

14.07.2007

How to measure neutrality? Most of the countries that have originated from the USSR still bear many distinct elements in common, such as, the -˜weak state syndrome, partial or procedural democratic institutions, centralized systems of government, or underperforming economies, and last but not least, a deep sense of insecurity, which describe probably to its utmost the fragility of transition in an unsecure environment. I would certainly state from the beginning that the lack of security and appropriate mechanisms of protecting democratic standards throughout the territory that belongs to the Moldovan sovereignty, is perhaps the most important obstacle to domestic reforms in Moldova.
