Abstract

After December 1989, the Romanian government made efforts to re-establish a coherent legal and institutional framework for private rights in land but the whole process has been characterized by instability, incoherence and unjustified delays. The restitution of land properties in private ownership was a conflicting process due to divergent economic and social interests within the social base. At the beginning the restitution and privatization process was conflicted for ideological purposes mainly since decades of communist ideology advocated the equalitarian dogma, which was deeply rooted within the mentality of many people. Later on the conflicts were mainly driven by different economic interests. The actual number of land related disputes and conflicts are barely known, but estimates of these are high.
