The Intellectual’s State in the Context of the Romanian Society’s Europeanization

The aim of this study is to analyse the intellectual’s state in the Romanian society which is going through a complex, difficult and prolonged process of Europeanization. A vast intellectual movement should have prepared Romania’s adhesion to the European Union in 2007. Its role would have been crucial in triggering the evaluation measures of the Europeanization phenomenon of a post-communist society that was facing major issues, such as the transition from the communist regime to democracy, the political instability, the privatization and its consequences and the economic underdevelopment. The current research acknowledges that one of the foremost factors of the Europeanization process is the intellectuals, a social category mainly focused on European and universal values. Another topic that I am targeting to bring into debate is the relationship between the Romanian intellectuals and the EU’s political power that is complementary to the domestic one. The country’s adhesion to the EU determined a series of relations between all social categories and the political power of the institutions from Brussels. In this context, the role played by the Romanian intellectuals in the Europeanization of the Romanian society and in promoting the interest of national citizens is shaped.
