Research in European Affairs

Studies and Analyses

The activity coordinated by the Studies and Analyses Unit represents one of the key directions of the European Institute of Romania, designed to meet the current and future needs of the authorities responsible for substantiating and coordinating the integration process of Romania in the European Union.

Thus, the Studies and Analyses Unit contributes to drafting strategy and policy recommendations in order to improve Romania's capacity to fulfill the obligations derived from its status as EU Member State.

Moreover, this Unit coordinates, produces, contracts and publishes studies, information materials, analyses and reference papers in the area of European integration and implements research programs, in cooperation with similar institutions, throughout Romania and abroad.

In addition, the Studies and Analyses Unit coordinates the Policy Briefs and Working Papers series, the Romanian Journal of European Affairs (RJEA) and the EIR Newsletter.

The end beneficiaries of the research activity are the Government of Romania, particularly the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as the ministries, governmental agencies and public institutions involved in Romania's integration process in the European Union.
