On/Off THE RECORD
Organized by Agora in cooperation with ASIST and have the mission to raise the level of civic engagement in Moldova by providing access to open events to help our citizens become better informed about politics, public policy and state government.
The first type of activity:
The Offline sessions will be open-to-the-public. The sessions will be made of two components: the on-the-record that will go LIVE on Agora.md news website, and off-the-record discussions. All the events will take place in public venues like university campuses, informal places like co-working spaces, cafes, community centers and other identified places used by the public. The format of Offline sessions will create the liaison between policy wonks will report on the work they're doing.
The discussion will be clustered around several major themes:
Debate on the foreign policy and external vector - that will include topics such as relationship with the European Union and the West; effects of globalization in Moldova - political, economic and social implications and Moldova and its security outlook.
Discuss the development models - economic development models, sectorial development and relationship with regional markets, the perspective on immigration and diaspora
Discuss the crosscutting issues - that includes discussion on cultural structures and mental models, nation-building and social cohesion, democracy development and backsliding.
The first problem tackled in this project is related to the quality of the public discourse that is oftentimes dominated by populist rhetoric, unhealthy political partisanship, and media spin bordering on overt propaganda activities.

It results in a lack of evidence-based reporting and constant manipulation with public opinion
#2
All the events will take place in public venues like university campuses, informal places like co-working spaces, cafes, community centers and other identified places used by the public.
