This analysis of the EU-driven reform pathologies is supported by data on one side, of the perception indices on corruption (the World Justice Project Rule of Law Index, Corruption Perception Index of Transparency International, WGI, and the analyses of the Legal Resources Center from Moldova – on how lawyers relate to the corruption in Moldova from within the Moldovan judicial system), and, on the other side by looking at the progress made in the field of rule of law, mainly the EaP Index. Along with this, the analysis will be sensitive to the changes of government and the impact they had on the judicial independence, and to the high-level corruption convictions (the actors involved and their position vis-à-vis European matters). In the end, a set of recommendations will be provided for improving the EU’s approach towards reforming the justice system in Moldova, and for re-branding its role as a normative power in the region.

Today’s industrial agriculture continues to harm the environment while depopulation threatens the social, cultural and economic welfare of rural areas. The European Union needs to support existing agricultural practices that are sustainable today. Civic agriculture and small farmers are key to meet climate goals and mitigate the ongoing biodiversity loss. Drawing on recent discussions in digital policy, this brief proposes action in four areas that can help support small and family farmers in the EU in the short and long term.
