Anatol Ţăranu (b. 19 October 1951) is a Moldovan politician.


Ţăranu holds a Ph.D. in history, 1986, and served as member of the Parliament of Moldova (1990–1993, 2005–2009). Ţăranu has also been a chief expert for the Chişinău side during negotiations with separatist leaders in Transnistria. Between 1993-1994, Ţăranu was Moldovan Ambassador to Moscow, and between 1997 and 1998 he was an advisor with special missions to the President of the Republic of Moldova. At the third congress of the Social Democratic Party, 25–26 February 1995, Anatol Ţăranu was elected as a new head of the party.[1]

After 2005 parliamentary election, Anatol Ţăranu was excluded from Party Alliance Our Moldova. On 16 December 2006 Ţăranu became a deputy chairman of the new National Liberal Party; Ţăranu left the party in November 2008 because he disagreed with the party's decision to stand for parliament in 2009 jointly with the European Action Movement.[2]

He currently works as Director of the Political Science and Political History Centre of the State University of Moldova and at the History Institute of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova, where he worked before becoming a deputy.[3]
