European Policy Center has published a policy brief about the current situation in Romania. The brief is authored by Corina Stratulat, EPC analyst, and Paul Ivan, CRPE affiliated expert.
CRPE resumes the conclusions of the previously published analysis where we laid out the deficiencies of the mechanism of coordination of the European affairs in Romania. The decision-centers established in January 2008 (political level, high officials’ level and civil servants’ level) are not operational in practice.
The report „The Future EU Budget. What changes, what stays and the implications for Romania” analyzes the European Commission’s proposal on the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework.
In 2010 the Romanian Center for European Policies (CRPE) together with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation Romania (FES) assessed in a project the Romanian Parliament's ability to engage in debates on European policies. The Final Report "Romania enters the EU Parliament. The legislative’s capacity to be an active European player”, launched in December 2010 assessed the institutional structures, procedures, internal resources of the Parliament, but also the relationship with government institutions and other institutions involved in the coordination of European affairs.
