The Association Agreement, which is currently
being negotiated, is destined to become the key
treaty between Ukraine and the European Union in
the coming decade. It will provide the legal basis
for the relationship, the institutions which will
essentially fashion that relationship and the
framework within which Ukraine's European
integration will take place. The importance of this
treaty therefore cannot be overstated.
It is worth remembering that it was the negotiation
of the Association Agreements between the EU and
the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, which
put these countries on the road to full membership
of the Union.
This paper analyses in the first place the attitude of
the new government of Ukraine to European
integration and that of the EU member states and
institutions towards Ukrainian integration. It then
considers the structure of the agreement,
indicating the key parts of the agreement in terms
of the modernisation of Ukraine’s law, economy
and political practice. It looks at the latest state of
the negotiation and analyses the key problems
which remain to be solved.
