Unequal Romania| Regional disparities in Romania – How do they look like and how to overcome them?
Since joining the EU in 2007, Romania has seen impressive economic growth and has managed to enter the circle of so-called high-income countries. A closer look reveals that the benefits of the post-socialist transition and European integration are distributed quite unevenly and that there is a strong polarisation between different geographical areas. Although regional disparities are increasing, there is no substantial public debate on how to tackle these territorial inequalities.
The Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES) Romania and the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) invite you to a debate on the growing regional disparities in Romania. The report “Unequal Romania – Regional socio-economic disparities in Romania” performs a cluster analysis, which shows that in terms of living conditions, economic indicators and social welfare, Romania can be divided into four distinct regions – what the authors call “The Four Romanias”. The results of this report underline the need to overhaul the economic and social policies on the national as well as on the EU level.
Juliane Schulte, FES Romania, Members of the European Parliament, Victor Negrescu and Corina Cretu, Laszlo Andor FEPS Secretary-General, together with the authors Cristina Raț and Bastian Heider discussed the solutions which are needed at the national and European levels for overcoming regional disparities and rethinking the development model so that it offers equal opportunities and high living standards to all citizens.
