Summary/Abstract: The legislation that came into force after 1945 has been approached by many researchers, who analyzed the various reforms of the communist regime (the educational, the agrarian or the economical reforms enjoyed the attention of many researchers). Laws concerning nationalities were also not omitted by historians. Nevertheless, researchers who approach the Nationalities Statute, for example, do nothing but to present its provisions without showing what was the position of the communist leaders several years after promulgation. Therefore, this has become one of the goals of this paper. The article is also intended to show and analyze the citizenship regulatory laws and the 1948 Constitution from the point of view of „cohabiting nationalities”. It is attempting to show why Romanian Communists made some concessions to minorities and how these laws were seen by the leading communist.
