A list of recent reports on Europe and Eurasia that were highlighted in the April issue of the Democracy Resource Center Bulletin.

Governments Move To Thwart ‘Arab Spring’ In Central Asia
Like the Middle East and North Africa, Central Asia also suffers from poverty, corruption, heavy-handed governments, widespread unemployment, and scant opportunities for the young.

Moldova’s European Transformation: Building Consensus for Democratic and Economic Reform
In July 2009, Moldova made the transition to democracy official when a majority voted in favor of pro-European parties, bringing an end to Europe’s last Communist government. The Moldovan path to Europe proved to be hard, maybe harder than anyone expected. Source: Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE)

Inclusion of a publication does not imply ownership or endorsement by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED); rather, these are publications that the Democracy Resource Center believes would be of interest to NED staff and others interested in democracy promotion.
