Transition And Social Change In The Romanian Rural Area


  • Tudor, Monica Mihaela

    (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


The transition towards an economy based on the market principles represents a period of deep changes, starting from redefining the development paradigms, continuing with resetting the whole economic and social system into the new conceptual frameworks, to end with the transformation of this new system into a functional one. In this analytical approach, we intend to capture the social change of the Romanian rural area in transition, as a result of the deepest transformation that defined the shift to a capitalist type of economy, which we named the re-setting of land ownership and operation into a private framework. The central argument of this approach is determined by the current rural reality in which agriculture is the most important economic activity, which absorbs the greatest part of the available labour force in this area, whose determinant production factor is the agricultural land.
