Challenges and implications of the DCFTA agreements between the EU and Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine

Client/Funding Institution

Bertelsmann Stiftung


The study makes a solid contribution to the international policy debate on free trade agreements between the EU on the one side, and Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine on the other. It contains a short-, medium- and long-term cost-benefit analysis of the free trade agreements, compares them with each other and assesses their likely impacts on the basis of European experiences. The study furthermore developes different integration scenaria and provides recommendations for future free trade agreements in general, and the European Neighbourhood Policy in particular.
