This study aims to analyse the key differences between the three Association Agreements (AAs) the EU concluded with Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia. Whereas the ‘3 DCFTA’ project already analysed in detail the scope, contents and implementation perspectives of these agreements in three separate ‘handsbooks’, this contribution will explore the most important differences between these landmark agreements. 

This paper will first compare the political chapters of the AAs (2). Then, the DCFTAs (3) and the AAs’ Titles on Economic and Sector Cooperation (4) and General and Final Provisions (5) are explored.
