Short Description:

Overall goal

Der ungelöste Konflikt mit Transnistrien ist ein Hindernis für die Republik Moldau bei der Umsetzung von politischen und wirtschaftlichen Reformen. Gleichzeitig ist dringender Erneuerungsbedarf im Bildungsbereich gegeben. Ziel des Projekts ist es ein internationales Bildungsprogramm in Form einer jährlichen Summer School und eines distance-learning-Programmes für moldauische Studenten von beiden Seiten des Dnjestr zu etablieren um die Studierenden auszubilden in den Bereichen Internationale Studien, Politikwissenschaft, Friedens- und Konfliktforschung und in Hinblick auf Demokratie. Das Projekt wird gemeinsam mit der Diplomatischen Akademie Wien, der OSCE und der moldauischen Akademie der Wissenschaften implementiert.
