The Foreign Policy Association of Moldova (APE) in cooperation with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Moldovan office are honored to invite you to the round table: “Islands of Cooperation in the OSCE area: small steps out of the security deadlock”.

The discussion will  focus on the current security challenges in the OSCE area that could be addressed through Islands of Cooperation – specific policy areas of converging interests between EU member states, Russia and the states in the joint neighborhood. Through pragmatic cooperation in areas of overlapping interests, gradually states could restore predictability and mutual trust. We think that this approach may bring a positive and constructive dynamic into the current security stalemate and help find regional answers to challenges we face.

The approach was developed by a FES-initiated group of young experts from across the OSCE space called FLEET (Fresh Look at Eastern European Trends).

The event will take place on Thursday, May 31st starting with 10.00, at the Regency hotel (17 Sfatul Țării Street, Chisinau). The working languages will be Romanian and English.

The project is a common initiative of FES regional office in Vienna and APE. The round table is financially supported by The Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation.
