The presidential campaign in 2014 had emphasised the bigger influence of the social-media in Romanian political communication. In the same time, we are experiencing a growing integration of different types of agenda (media, public and politicians) – in the electoral campaigns, and also in the public sphere. Into a permanent changing media environment (we never have had a stability period in the last 25 years), following the interaction between these agandas can become a good tool for public communication strategies.

It is known that as of 1998 Romania has started a Top-Down process of regionalization. The main purpose of this process was to subdivide the national territory according to the criteria of the NUTS classification used in the European Union both for statistical purposes and as a dimension to access
EU fundings. Within this framework the paper aims to assess the development of the competitiveness of the “new” Romanian regions with a particular focus on innovation seen as a determining factor.

Especially nationalist radical movements seems to became more popular between the citizens after they took from the populist parties the Euroskeptical message and the radical message against minorities or immigrants. The extremist message of those parties or radical movements it’s pretty much the same even they are located in different counties or cultures.

Etnie, națiune, modernitate - o abordare critică a premiselor etno-simboliste

Author: 
Valentin Quintus Nicolescu

 In my article I will try to examine some methodological assumptions proposed by Anthony D. Smith regarding the study of nations and nationalisms and discuss the relation between the ethnie and nation in his work in order to asses the implications they have on the wider theoretical model proposed by ethno-symbolism.
