Zur Lage in Rumänien - Ein soziologischer Blick auf zentrale Strukturprobleme
The Situation in Romania - A Sociological Perspective on Key Structural Problems
Subject(s): Social Sciences
Published by: Südosteuropa Gesellschaft e.V.
Summary/Abstract: The article discusses important structural problems in contemporary Romania from a sociological point of view. In particular, it deals with former and present questions concerning minorities. These questions have recently experienced a remarkable actualisation due to the current “regionalization-debate” and other developments in domestic and foreign policies. The article further discusses consequences and problems resulting from cross-border and internal migration. Other key subjects are regional disparities concerning economic and social structures as well as certain evidence for a “democratization crisis” in Romania. Closely linked to that focus are problems concerning institutional change. One sign providing evidence of these problems is that some institutional sectors are very vulnerable to corruption. Finally, the article addresses questions about the collective identity and future perspectives, especially concerning pan-European developments.
