|This research project was initiated in September 2001, and
was financed by the European Commission, through the subsidy under the
Article A-3022 and within the programme called: "Support for European integration
activities organised by the academic world".
The Interdisciplinary Reflection Group (IRG) of the House of Europe conducted the research. The main objective was to elaborate a study aimed to emphasize:
As Romania started the negociations for the accesssion to the European Union, the urgency to implement and improve the regional strategies and a harmonization policy at national level, concordant with the EU evolution and trends, has become extremely important. This theoretical attempt should be preceded by a mature understanding/ absorption of the main regional differences, to be determined on the basis of the analysis and re-valuation of the social and economic traditions, public administration organization during centuries, regional identities and work ethics and social-economic prevalent models etc.
In our view, the modernisation process of Romania should start by recognising the symbolical and practical importance of the previous traditional, social, cultural and mental models which could influence the systemic transformation of mentalities, as well as the present implementing regional development strategies. The realisation of an effective local autonomy and the subsidiarity principle is also becoming a major pressure on the Romanian society.
One of the major priorities of the moment consists in designing newly adapted alternatives facing the profound modification of the new representation of the countrys political and administrative coherence. It refers to a gradual revision process of the relations between the "center" and the regions, between the better developed areas and the defavorised ones.
