Romania - 10 years in the European Union

On 1 January 2017 Romania celebrated 10 years of EU membership. This anniversary moment created the opportunity for the European Institute of Romania (EIR) to prepare and present to the public a synthetic document on the main benefits of Romania's integration into the community space. The report on "Romania - 10 Years in the European Union", elaborated by the Studies and Analyses Unit, and coordinated by Mrs. Gabriela Drăgan, Director General of EIR, presents a short history of the road to accession, the current regional context and the evolution of the perceptions of the Romanian citizens with regard to EU membership, the main sectoral benefits, as well as some considerations regarding the future of European construction. The document is available in Romanian here.

At the same time, during 2017, EIR and EDIC Bucharest organized a series of events dedicated to this anniversary moment #10RO@EU.

Romania - France: together in Europe

The series of conferences “Romania - France: together in Europe” run in partnership with the Embassy of France in Romania is among EIR’s successful projects. The public conferences launched in the spring of 2007 to mark Romania’s accession to the EU and the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome aimed to contribute to the analysis of European topics which are important both for the European Union, as a whole, and in particular for the two countries, leading to a better understanding of the Community policies, the institutional developments as well as to a stronger bilateral relation between the two member states in the area of European affairs.

During the 31 conferences organised between 2007 - 2011, political personalities and high officials of the French administration put forward for debate topics from the Community agenda, such as: social policy, territorial reform, budgetary reform, defence policy, multilingualism and francophony, environment protection, agriculture, institutional reform, etc.
