After several large corruption scandals hit Moldova in the past years, the country has undergone turbulent political developments. Citizen protests, a dynamic and engaged civil society and international pressure have helped intensify reforms in the past few years, including in increasing the integrity of electoral processes and mitigating the negative role of money in politics. 

Since mid-2015, International IDEA has engaged in Moldovan democratic reform and institutional strengthening. Together with the Centre for Continuous Electoral Training and the Central Electoral Commission, it has worked on enhancing political finance oversight. International IDEA is also working to assess the current state of local democracy, using its long-standing tested tools in this field.

International IDEA has also helped launch an assessment of the state of democracy at the local level in Moldova and has launched a project to promote integrity in political finance in the country.
