Moldova is in an increasingly volatile political situation that presents new challenges for democratisation. New civic and political activists have emerged and have had some successes in mobilising citizens on issues such as corruption and state capture. However, the establishment continues to impede activities of critical opposition, civil society and independent media through restrictive legislation and other pressures.

EED approach and added value

  • Enable civic activists to steer public debates towards issues that really matter to people
  • Support nascent forms of civic and political activism in the regions and at the local level
  • Focus on initiatives that provide credible and quality alternative sources of information, especially for Russian-speaking minorities

Examples of supported initiatives

  • Innovative independent media outlets
  • Initiatives promoting human rights through artistic expression and community development
  • Civic organisations from remote regions that mobilise and enhance participation of activists
