Romania and the “Western” World: a Brief Overview of Romanian Foreign Policy, 1990–2012
Languages of publication
This paper is dealing with the evolution of Romanian foreign policy following to the fall of the Ceausescu regime in 1989, until 2012. Our analysis is approaching the otherwise complex issue in the mirror of two different phenomenons: first, the quest of Romania for the so-called Euro-Atlantic integration, which equates with the join of the NATO and of the European Union, second, the Romanian approach to the debate between Atlantic and integrated European approaches. Based on a various bibliography, is explored the complexity of US-EU relations too, and their manifestation in the orientation of East-Central European former socialist countries. In the conclusions of the study, a predicted possible sketch of the Romanian orientation is also described.
