"Visegrad4Moldova! - Debating the European Union: Visegrad 4 Experience" is a project lead by our partner, MESA10, supported by the International Visegrad Fund (IVF) and implemented in cooperation with partners from all four Visegrad countries (V4) and Moldova. The project aims at sharing the EU integration and reform experience of Visegrad countries with Moldova and strengthening the understanding of reforms needed on its European path via live debates of University students from V4 and Moldova.
The project connects Moldovan University students with their peers from Visegrad countries, and aims to strengthen their debating skills. Two rounds of debates will be organized in 2014: one in the Spring Semester, and on in the Fall Semester. Debates will be broadcast live and can be viewed on MESA10's web page (link to be provided).
Online debates of student teams in front of student audiences are accompanied by seminars to acquaint students and faculty members with IVF grants and scholarships. Since we want to promote prospects for more joint projects, we are hopeful that this, combined with direct interaction of students will increase the opportunities of cooperation between V4 and Moldova.
Together with our partners, we also encourage the students to share their thoughts on European integration by writing blogs that you can read on this web page and Facebook. Five best essayists are to be honored after the Fall debate.
A handout reflecting the opinions of the students on EU integration is to be printed and distributed at the project’ closure in February 2015
