Summary/Abstract: Researcher, professor, diplomat, editor, „Jean Monnet” Chair, Ion Calafeteanu has proven throughout his career the erudition, rigor, equilibrium, nuanced approach and acuteness specific to the research fields in which he has performed: the history of international relations and Romania’s foreign policy. His lectures of Universal and Romanian Contemporary History, Romania in the International Relations during the 20th Century and The Totalitarian Regimes have represented for those who have followed them real laboratories of training in those areas. The width of horizons opened to his students, the depth and up-to-dateness of interpretations, the scientific authority, the professionalism and the empathy he conveys to his audience are responsible for the amphitheatres being always full during his lectures. Distinguished, full of intellectual verve, enjoying the pleasure of dialogue, exchange of views and fine irony, the professor transmits complex human qualities which win many of his students, prompting them to ask him coordinate their undergraduate work, master’s thesis or doctorate dissertations.
