Over the past eight years, I have been involved in various conflict management and settlement efforts in Moldova. Between 2003 and 2009 I regularly visited the southern autonomous region of Gagauzia as part of a project run by the European Centre for Minority Issues on clarifying the competences accorded to Gagauzia in the 1994/5 settlement. In August 2008 I was part of a mission with the EU Special Representative to Komrat to help the local political parties overcome a deadlock after parliamentary elections in Gagauzia earlier in the year.
In 2003, and again since 2007, I have been involved in various projects concerning the settlement of the conflict over Transnistria, primarily as a consultant for the OSCE Mission to Moldova and the British Embassy in Chisinau. This has included regular visits to both Chisinau and Tiraspol.
