Summary/Abstract: The National-Communist regime in Romania focused on two primary objectives: a modernization program meant to overcome underdevelopment by a new wave of industrialization and an independent position in the international affairs in order to gain domestic legitimacy and protection against the Soviet control. Ceauşescu’s regime developed an entire concept on the future of Europe, based on the economical cooperation and respect for sovereignty, with the intention to gain support for its major political goals. This study examines Ceauşescu’s concept of Europe and the way he used the non-alignment rhetoric to justify its purposes. “Europe” is an ideological instrument which served for asserting international independence and for granting easy access to technological and financial gateways towards development.

Summary/Abstract: Euro-Mediterranean Partnership designed to extend the space of stability and political and socioeconomic cooperation to the southern borders of the Old Continent. The Barcelona process considers that the regional security is a concept that must be analyzed by means of a global approach, considering its political and economic dimensions. Before January 1, 2007, date of Romania and Bulgaria’s EU integration, the political experts and strategists of the Balkan-Carpathian region usually placed a special emphasis on the security changes experienced in the area of the Black Sea – Caucasus regions after the end of the communism and the dismemberment of the Soviet Union. In this ambience there arises the Wider Black Sea Area, an initiative of the Rumanian government destined to promote an association based on the concepts of regional safety and good neighborhood.The authors of the initiative adopted the model of the three “baskets”: economic security and stability, cooperation and sociocultural aspects. The initiative was relegated into background after the opening in Bucharest, in May 2006, of the Black Sea Forum for Dialogue and Partnership.
