Summary/Abstract: Migration is a complex social phenomenon which affects societies at all levels – social, cultural, economical, educational, etc. To address the problems generated by this phenomenon in all these domains, several public policies need to be defined to soften migration’s impact related to integration and acceptance of immigrants. In this sense, states need to regulate a series of measures legitimated either from the desire to preserve common goods for future generations, either from the fear of cultural division or due to the fear of deviance from the accepted social norms. All these fears are reflected in national fierce full debates about social inclusion and observance of the minimal social and political rights of the immigrants. Taking into consideration all that, this paper refers to ethical principles of human rights and ecological perspectives in conceiving and implementing public policies related to labour migration phenomenon. Concepts like human rights ethics, „carrying capacity” and living standards are linked to what make an immigration policy being ethic and to whom this policy should be ethic. Furthermore, the article suggests some directions for analyzing labour immigration’s impact in the ethical perspective in order to properly define public policies related to this phenomenon, with the final goal of strengthening the states/social actors` cooperation relationships for limiting/stimulating the phenomenon.

Summary/Abstract: The minority issue represented the only ,,dark spot” on the agenda of bilateral relations between Athens and Bucharest during the interwar decades. This paper assesses this contntious issue, mainly concerning the Macedo-Romanians. One apparent solution to ethnic tensions of the period was the voluntary ,,in corpore” migration of some communities of Macedo-Romanians, which have left their native land and settled in Southern Dobroudja, during the interwar decades. This is placed a special emphasios on in this study. A special section of the study is dealing with the status of Greek community in Romania, in the light of new relevant archive documents. The authorities in Bucharest were constantly concerned with the situation of the Macedo-Romanian communities, a special role being played by Romania’s diplomatic representative in Athens, Constantin Langa Răşcanu, whose experience (and continuity) in the Balkans would eventually yield the expected results in the rapprochement between Romania and Greece. We have identified important moments, starting from the first years of the interwar decades (as well as the situation in the aftermath of the Second Balkan War) and going further to diplomatic statements about ethnic minority status by both parties. As a matter of fact, the Macedo-Romanian rights and their treatment by the Greek authorities, although less prominently, continued to be on the agenda of bilateral relations throughout the interwar period.
