A Decade Later: Understanding the transition process in Romania


Romania’s transition experience during the last decade was frenzied and fragmented, fraught with multiple objectives and external pressures. The report examines this unique process of transition and examines the possibility of using the knowledge gained from the process for the formulation of new policies. The most important trends in the economic, political and social dimensions are highlighted, as well as the impact of the transition on human development. The message of the report is that, in a process as complex and entwined as the Romania transition experience, good governance and effective management of public resources can be a means to accomplishing people-focused development.
